Each year, ReedPOP and Penny Arcade hold a variety of PAX events around the world were developers indie and AAA alike can show off their games to both regular attendees and press. Today, PAX West 2019 finally went on sale as the show’s official dates were set in stone and some new changes for this year were unveiled.
First off, PAX West will be taking place between August 30, 2019 and September 2, 2019 at the Washington State Convention Center. As usual, this year’s show will feature four-day badges, badges for the individual days, and BYOC add-on badges. This year, a four-day badge costs $220 this year, a single-day badge costs $55, and the BYOC add-on badges is $45. Interestingly, PAX West is opening its doors earlier than usual this year, with the show now starting at 9:30 AM. While this added time may make thing a bit more stressful for those showcasing at the fan, attendees will likely appreciate the extra time to check everything out.
In addition to the tickets, new PAX West merch has also gone on sale. Players can get $15 zipper bags, $25 scarfs, and an office stationary set featuring a stapler, pen cup, tray, tape dispenser, and three pens for $55. Part of the fun of PAX is the interesting merchandise, and the show seems to be dedicated to that from the start this year.
