Square Enix Announces Pax Prime 2014 Line Up

Square Enix is inviting fans to come experience their upcoming lineup at this year’s PAX Prime, taking place in Seattle, WA from August 29 to September 1.


There were some mistakes and copy-paste errors in our previous report and we thought to clarify them a bit. The schedule under is for the Hitman: Sniper community event not Pax Prime itself. The community event is arranged at Hard Rock Café, where the fans get to play Hitman: Sniper in a tournament. The Grand Prize winner at the community event will win a prize package, which includes the opportunity to be integrated into the game as a villain. See the timing below:

Friday, August 29
8 p.m. – 11 p.m. (Tournament Period)
8 p.m. – 2 a.m. (Event Period)
