For the first time in PAX history, PAX South 2020 will host initiatives celebrating the Latinx community and a range of diverse developers at the annual celebration of gaming culture taking place Jan. 17 – 19, 2020 at The Henry B. González Convention Center in San Antonio. As a San Antonio native and Mexican American, this move is a wonderful choice to highlight the uniqueness of the city that has been home to PAX for years.
In another first for PAX, Latinx in Gaming will host the Latinx Lounge, an inclusive space featuring 3 days of panels (some in Spanish), workshops, tournaments, networking opportunities, and 8 showcased international games. The initiative is supported by Red Bull, Unity, Twitch, and Microsoft.
Participating Latinx developers include Mecha Studio, Level 99 Games, Navegante, Broadstrokes, Seashell Studio, The Stonebot Studio, HyperBeard Games, and Streamline Games. Panelists from BioWare, Microsoft, Gearbox Publishing, Ready at Dawn, and more will cover personal and professional topics central to the Latinx community.
Latinx in Gaming has been a must-see panel at the 2018 and 2019 gaming convention circuit, especially at PAX. To see the PAX embrace this community of gamers and game makers is beautiful to see especially with something as prominent as a Latinx Lounge.
The complete PAX South 2020 schedule and exhibitor list is now available via Guidebook through the PAX Mobile App for iOS and Android and the official PAX website. The Henry B. González Convention Center will host the hottest games from the likes of Larian Studios, Tiny Build, 3D Realms, Annapurna Interactive, Ysbryd Games, Inti Creates and tons of other renowned indie game developers.
Three-day badges for PAX South 2020 are available now for $95, with single-day badges available for $45.
