Apple Original comedy series Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet is coming to Apple TV+ on February 7. But before then, Mythic Quest is stopping off at the PAX South gaming expo in Texas, possibly for an early advance screening.

The Apple TV+ show was co-created by It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia stars Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day. It follows a team of video game developers as they work on an epic sequel to the biggest multiplayer video game of all time. Think Silicon Valley for the gaming world!

No details are shared on the website for PAX South. The expo runs from January 17 through January 19. It features live performances, demos, panels, and more. Apple is listed as one of the exhibitors, alongside a number of major games studios. While the appearance could conceivably be anything, an advance Mythic Quest PAX South screening would make sense due to the timing.

Apple has taken a different tact when it comes to promoting Mythic Quest. That’s likely because it wants to tap into gaming fandom as an audience. Despite Apple’s so-so history with the games industry, if Mythic Quest can get gamers on-board, that’s a massive potential audience for the show.

The first sighting of Mythic Quest was last summer, during an appearance at E3. Ubisoft also assisted the show’s creators during the development process.

Apple debuted the first full trailer for the show last week. You can check it out here.
