The biggest gaming show in Australia will return in 2016.
Without much fanfare, we just received a message from our contact at PAX AUS that included the above image and the words, "It's Official..." While not a big surprise, it's nice to know that the weekend starting November 4 is the one to lock away in the calendar. The show is really quite brilliant and talks to all formats, and we love how great a job it does in ensuring there is equal pegging between the big blockbusters and the indies. The crowd is fantastic and the talks engaging. If you're deeply into your gaming, it's an experience we highly recommend.
The official site has yet to be updated, but we expect yet another huge showing of indies as well. We made the indie PAX AUS guide for 2014, which you can grab here on iPad, and it contained 68 indies, with exclusive early access and interviews for every one of them. That's a lot of local developers that get to show off their wares, ensuring the event - having just wrapped its third year - is becoming an important part of the business of video games in Australia, and not just a public celebration. We can't wait.
