Sometimes, it can be hard for some people to get out to one of those PAX conventions we have annually. There’s PAX East–currently going on right now–and PAX Prime held in Seattle. One on the far west coast; the other on the far east coast. Well, what about those who reside in the center of the country? Don’t ask anymore though because Penny Arcade Expo and ReedPOP answered for you with PAX South.

Announced today at PAX East, Penny Arcade Expo and ReedPOP announced that a new PAX event known as PAX South will be debuting January 23-25, 2015 in San Antonio, Texas. Having a new PAX event will give game developers and publishers a new crowd to share their games but, more importantly, it’s another way for the gamers–the fans–to experience them.

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,” said Robert Khoo, president of Penny Arcade.

So if you’re living in the center of the USA or the southern parts and just can’t get out to the east and/or west coast for one reason or another, know that Penny Arcade is looking out for you. You’ve got PAX South coming next year.
