So us Canadians here at MP1st have a warmer place to play and talk about exciting new video games during the cold Winter months, Penny Arcade Expo is announcing “PAX South” in San Antonio, Texas, coming early next year.
The event is scheduled to debut this January 23-25, 2015, and is the fourth PAX show – third to occur in the U.S. – joining locations like Seattle, Boston, and Melbourne, Australia. PAX East’s Boston event is currently underway as of this writing.
“The love of gaming in all its many forms, whether that be on a TV, a computer, a phone, or even a tabletop, is hitting an all-time high. PAX gives gaming fans one place to get a glimpse of emerging trends and does it in a truly fun and interactive way,” said Global Vice President of ReedPOP Lance Fensterman in a press release earlier today.
Robert Khoo, Penny Arcade President, added, “Since its launch in 2004, PAX events have doubled in size almost every year, and our Seattle and Boston events represent the two largest gaming festivals in North America. We’ve been hearing for years that those in the south had a tough time making it to the northern corners of the country; PAX South has always been a matter of ‘when’ rather than ‘if.'”
The Penny Arcade Expo is one of the world’s largest gaming festivals that connects leading video and tabletop game makers with fans from around the world. The show also highlights cultural aspects of gaming with panels, concerts, tournaments, and freeplay areas.
