PAX Australia will return to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on October 27-29 of this year.

Tickets for the event are scheduled to go on sale on March 14.

PAX Aus is run by US-based gaming company Penny Arcade in conjunction with pop culture event specialists ReedPOP. It features a show packed with exhibitors, freeplay gaming spaces, industry and community panels, live concerts, international speakers, and exclusive reveals.

Those who grab Early Bird tickets will save AU$5 per ticket. That makes the Friday Only, Saturday Only, and Sunday Only tickets AU$65 (NZ$70), Three Day Passes AU$165, and International Three Day passes AU$165 (NZ$176).

Attendees wishing to bring their own computer can also purchase a BYOC pass for an additional AU$45 (NZ$48).

All prices include national delivery within Australia.

"Australia's gaming community has given PAX such an incredible home here," said PAX and Penny Arcade co-founder Jerry Holkins.

"This year will see the fifth PAX Aus erupt in Melbourne, and there's every indication it will be the best one yet."
