PC Freeplay is an area of PAX where computers (provided by sponsors) are loaded with the latest PC games for the enjoyment of PAX attendees.

Description

Had a PC game you always wanted to try but never got around to it? Want to co-op with friend? PC Freeplay is the place to be.

Attending

Each attendee is given a limited amount of time and when their time is up, they must leave the PC so another may use it. The PCs are networked, so co-op and competitive multiplayer gaming (if the game supports it of course) is available.

Please note that you are not allowed to "plug-in" any of your own PC peripherals into the PC Freeplay machines. This includes (but is not limited to) keyboard, mice, usb flash drives, usb hard drives, any usb dongle, usb headsets and any internal component (memory, video cards, hard drives and etc.).

The line for PC Freeplay will vary throughout the day. This is due to the various PC tournaments that will take place in PC Freeplay.

Expected Content

Expect to see an area with ~350-400 PCs
