We’re partnering up with European Speedrunning Assembly (ESA) to bring you a three-day all star showcase from our expo floor! Six speedrunners will be performing their runs daily from the ESA stage. Each of them will be on stage at least once a day, meaning that you don’t have to worry about missing them if you’re a Day Pass holder!
Check out the speedrunning lineup:
