QuakeCon is taking after all of the major conventions around the world this year and going all digital for the 25th annual show, usually based out of Dallas, starting next Friday.

“We’re excited to celebrate the 25th annual QuakeCon with a global Super Stream, featuring a full weekend of nonstop live content from around the world. The schedule is packed with three days of celebrity influencer streams, live concerts, charity fundraising, developer panels and much more,” Bethesda said in a press release.
QuakeCon at Home kicks off at 1 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 7, with a digital welcome by Pete Hines, Senior Vice President of Public Relations at Bethesda and will run through Sunday, Aug. 9.
Throughout the duration of the show, players will be able to login into Bethesda.net and claim a free copy of the original Quake on the Bethesda launcher. If charitable donations reach $10,000, players will also be given a free copy of Quake II.
QuakeCon viewers will be able to join us in donating to organizations directly from the official QuakeCon at Home Twitch stream, including Direct Relief, UNICEF, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and The Trevor Project.
QuakeCon at Home will also have new, exclusive “Dogvahkiin” and “Catodemon” t-shirts for sale, with 100 percent of the profits going to both our long-time Dallas animal adoption partner, Dallas Pets Alive, as well as FOUR PAWS, a global animal welfare organization.
Elder Scrolls Online players who catch any of the ESO streams during QuakeCon at Home will receive an in-game pet as a Twitch drop: the Flame Atronach Pony pet in addition to Ouroboros Crown Crates. Players must link ESO and Twitch accounts prior to the show to qualify.
Doom Eternal players will have access to a free Slayer skin, icon and badge across all platforms through Aug. 11.
Quake Champions players will be able to claim a free QuakeCon 2020 Railgun skin.
