PAX Australia plays host to packed ESL schedule

Following the success of this past weekend’s Crown CS:GO Invitational, ESL has revealed its plans for PAX Australia, expanding on the teaser we were given a while back. If you’re fond of Halo 5, Rocket League and Smite, you’re in for a fun time!

Of course, we already knew that Smite would be on show, hosting its Oceania Regional Championship Finals on Saturday – but Halo 5 and Rocket League are new (and very exciting) developments.

Smite is coming to PAX AUS!
