I have been going to QuakeCon for 7 years now and I have to say I am more excited for this year than every before. It was officially announced Monday that DOOM: Eternal, Fallout 76, Rage 2, and more games would be headling this years event. QuakeCon will be taking place August 9th through the 12th with the BYOC Opening a day before the event starts.
This year there will be a total of 4,500 BYOC seats, which is the most seat QuakeCon has ever had in their BYOC. The BYOC, Bring Your Own Computer Lan Part, is a breathtaking spectacle in itself. Year after year eager gamers come to game, drink BAWLS Guarana, and show off their amazing custom PC Rigs. While at the event this year we will take as many pictures as possible to show off the best PC’s at the event!

Friday, at 11am, the QuakeCon Keynote Address will start with updates on Elder Scrolls Online, Quake: Champions, and Rage 2! Then Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin from id Software will show off the reveal gameplay for DOOM: Eternal! The Quake Open Tournament will also start on Friday and run through Sunday.
This Tournament will feature 2v2 team gameplay and will have a prize of $175,000 for the winner! Wow, you can buy a ton of BAWLS with that kinda cash. There will also be a TOP 8 Team Tournament, in this touramnet all players (even team mates) will now go head to head in 1v1 gameplay with the winner walking away with the prize of $25,000!
DOOM ETERNAL REVEAL TRAILER
Saturday, at 11am, Todd Howard and other Bethesda Game Dev’s will show off a bit more details on Fallout 76. It is said the team will be doing a deep dive on the character and perk system. Even though the game has had some backlash from fans for being an online game, I really believe this will be one of the biggest Fallout titles in years. We will for sure be seeing more gameplay and hope to get our hands on this amazing titile during the event.
