Here's Everything to Know About the GDC 2022 All-Access Virtual Pass

Eager to check out what's happening at GDC 2022 from the comforts of home? The Game Developers Conference is offering a stand-alone All Access Online Only Pass for those unable to make the event in person. This lower-cost pass provides some unique special features, along with full access to the virtual portion of GDC.

Where and How to Watch Sessions

Several of our key sessions and roundtables—including Wednesday's Main Stage presentation on the "Developer's Renaissance"—are being livestreamed through our Virtual GDC Platform. These sessions have a Viewing Experience filter marked as "In-Person/Virtual Livestream." In addition, 100+ top-rated GDC sessions will be available on-demand within 36 hours of the session start time if the session’s Viewing Experience filter is marked as “In-Person/Virtual” or “In-Person/Virtual Livestream.” 

By Wednesday, March 30 all of the video-on-demand files will include closed captions in English, Spanish, Japanese, and Mandarin.

Wanting to see the sessions happening live in the Virtual GDC Platform? Head to the Session Viewer or Swapcard and click on the "In-Person/Virtual Livestream" filter! 

Virtual Networking

There’s a variety of networking options for virtual pass holders! These include one-on-one meetings through Swapcard, roundtable discussions on Wednesdays, and group discussion rooms. Head into Swapcard for all of these. 

In addition, virtual networking gets even better with Eventuall’s dedicated Networking Room. Anyone on a computer at home or on-site can seamlessly move from one interest group to the next or form new circles to discuss what’s ticking at GDC via video conversation.

Be sure to join our virtual networking events, happening Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00 to 10:00am PT. To join, click the “Event Agenda” button in Swapcard, locate the session listing, and click the link in the session. All GDC pass holders are welcome!
