The organizers behind the April 11-13 PAX East event in Boston, Mass. announced that a new show will join the Penny Arcade Expo family beginning in 2015. The freshly announced PAX South will take place in San Antonio, Texas, and the inaugural event will be held January 23-25, 2015.

“The new show will build on the foundation of the PAX format giving fans a healthy mix of the latest and greatest in video games, tabletop games, game inspired music, competitive gameplay, and insight from leaders in the world of gaming,” the press release states. “The annual events give gamers a PAX show for every season throughout the year.”

The PAX events first began in 2004 with PAX Prime in Seattle. PAX East followed in 2010, and PAX Australia began in 2013. A private event for developers, PAX Dev, takes place as a prelude to PAX Prime, but it is not open to the public.

“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,” Robert Khoo, Penny Arcade President said, “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.'”

Next up for the organizers is PAX Prime, which kicks off in Seattle, Wash. on August 29 and runs through September 1, 2014 (with PAX Dev occurring right before on August 27-28). Tickets have not gone on sale yet, but they should have no problem moving. Last year’s tickets sold out in just over six hours.

Here's our guide to PAX West, from games to awesome panels
leaked borderlands 2 dlc to bridge 3

The Penny Arcade Expo's annual Seattle convention has begun. More elegantly dubbed PAX West, this celebration of all things video games works a little bit differently than Gamescom or E3. Instead of spotlighting the biggest publishers and their upcoming projects, PAX West places the focus on indie games and panels on game design itself.

You'll still find Nintendo, Square Enix, Bungie, Ubisoft, and many more on the showroom floor, but not without running into the famed Indie Megabooth or Devolver Digital first. Regardless of your tastes in genre or developer, you can find games and panels that interest you, and we’ve highlighted some of the best PAX West events happening this weekend that you don’t want to miss.
PAX West 2019 Schedule
One of the most exciting aspects of PAX West is how jam-packed it is with events for attendees. From voice actors speaking about what goes into mastering their roles to developer workshops that center around increasing inclusivity in games, there's plenty of options to choose from. We won't list every single panel happening at PAX West 2019 here, but you can check out the full schedule on the official website. You can also find our suggestions for the best panels to attend below.
How to watch
Just like most conventions, you won't be able to find every PAX West 2019 panel online. However, you can watch a selection of content from the event through the official PAX Twitch channel.
