Far Cry 5
September 2, 2:30–3:30 pm, Hydra Theater at the Grand Hyatt Hotel: Far Cry 5 throws players headlong into a war against the Project at Eden’s Gate, a sinister doomsday cult that has taken over idyllic Hope County, Montana. Join the resistance of Hope County as they rebel against the cult’s dark influence. Hosted by Achievement Hunter’s Jack Pattillo, the panel includes Lead Writer Drew Holmes and the talent bringing the colorful denizens of Hope County to life, Murry Peeters (Grace Armstrong), Martin Roach (Pastor Jerome Jeffries), Steve Byers (Nick Rye) and, that’s right, Boomer the dog. The panel can be watched live at twitch.tv/pax.
September 4, 2:30 pm, Hydra Theater at the Grand Hyatt Hotel: Every week, the For Honor dev team presents a live show on twitch.tv/forhonorgame, which connects them directly with their community. Answering questions, providing news and information and oftentimes a big peek behind the curtain of the game’s continuing post-launch development, the Warrior’s Den has become an important touchpoint for transparency and information for players. Now, for the first time ever, the For Honor team will be doing the show live and in person with their community. Join Creative Director Roman Campos Oriola, Game Director Damien Kieken, Lead Designer Bio Jade Adam Granger and Community Developer Eric Pope.
