Tuesday, 27th August 2013 16:13 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Twitch has sent over its schedule for PAX Prime this weekend and to say the streaming service is going to be a busy bee, is an understatement.

The service will be live streaming from more than 50 developers, eSports tournaments, panel appearances, community events, and official PAX theatre content

It is also partnering with both NVIDIA and Wargaming to host an industry gala for the GeForce eSports $100K Open Finals, and broadcasting the SMITE $20K North America Invitational and games from more than fifty developers.

“PAX conventions are the perfect union between the gaming industry and its fans, mirroring what Twitch is doing online,” said Amber Dalton, director of marketing and events for Twitch. “Given our love of PAX and its passionate gamer community, we are involved in everything from events and parties to panels and booth activities—all of which is complemented by a live streaming component. So if you can’t make PAX, you can still tune in online to see some of the best content on display.”

Here’s some of the events the service has announced,plus it will be giving away prizes at its booth:

SMITE $20K North America Invitational

    Twitch is on PS4 so that doesn’t count? Right?

    I really, really hope Twitch are hard at work improving their data centers. All these big events seem to be ok, but the smaller streams seem to struggle so much sometimes. I have trouble watching Starcraft on some occasions…

    Twitch is indeed brilliant on Xbox One. But the one for ps4 will be a lite version or something. The version Microsoft didn’t want to have anything to do with.

    Several TBAs in there…I’d peg the NC Soft one as (if it’s not Wildstar, which would be the obvious one) if not that, then Archeage, possibly. Also, Epic Games appears three times, once on the Indie Showcase. That’s bound to be Fortnite, but maybe the two prior showings will be of something else!

    @6 Fail.

    Looking forward to it on PS4, should be decent.
