PAX 2019 Early Bird Badges Now Available!


PAX Aus is coming to Melbourne on October 11-13 and as of 12:30PM today fans are now able to secure their PAX 2019 early bird badges. The PAX festival has been brought forward compared to previous years, and for good reason. “We heard your cry for PAX to come sooner,” said Luke Lancaster, Content Manager, PAX Aus. “It turns out planning PAX is much like scheduling a D&D game, and when we sat down to plan the first weekend we all had free was in October.

Tickets range from $65 for a single day pass to $170 for the full weekend, and are selling out fast. Head to the official PAX 2019 Early Bird site where you can secure your badge and start planning your cosplay outfit or what games you plan to play. Based on PAX 2018, three day badges will be the first to sell out and lines will be long so attending on the Friday will be a must for hardcore fans.

PAX 2019 will once again feature as the centrepiece of the Victorian Government’s Melbourne international Games week (MIGW), connecting gamers, technology and culture across the Asia-Pacific region. Check out gamesweek.melbourne for more info on MIGW.

The PAX 2019 festival featuring the EB Games Expo promises to be bigger than ever, with plenty of unreleased games available to try as well as the increasingly popular PAX Rising featuring a plethora of indie games with their developers eager to get you playing. Check out our in-depth PAX Rising 2018 wrap-up here.

PAX is a great opportunity for us here at Rocket Chainsaw to not just play the latest games but also interview the developers in some behind closed doors sitdowns. Last year we had the pleasure of interviewing developers for games like Just Cause 4 and Hitman 2, and we look forward to opportunities to work with developers at PAX Aus 2019.

Gamers wanting to bring their own computers (BYOC) to play local games on the PAX Aus 2019 wired network have the option of adding BYOC to their ticket for $45.

Exhibitors can also now make enquiries to lock in booths via the official PAX 2019 registration site, however media registration is currently still closed and will typically occur at a later date.

Stay tuned to Rocket Chainsaw for all the latest on PAX Aus 2019, and make sure to follow PAX Aus 2019 on Facebook and Twitter.
