Since the beginning of the Covid Pandemic, a lot of us have had to change the “normal” in our life. One of the normals in my life was going to Quakecon, my wife and I had attended the event for 10 years and loved every single event. If you don’t know, Quakecon is one of the longest running BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) event on the globe and is put on by Bethesda.
Running since August 15th, 1996, Quakecon is not just your normal gaming event…it’s a family reunion. Not only is there a huge BYOC, but there are cosplay events, the Quake Tournament, Special Panels, Exclusive and Early previews to upcoming Bethesda Games, and more!
Though Quakecon won’t return as a live in-person event until next year, Quakecon’s live streaming event is back with a ton of panels, live streams, and interactive events. Bethesda will also be showcasing their upcoming title Redfall and will be kicking off the stream with id Software’s Marty Stratton at 1:00 pm eastern. I can only hope he will announcing a new iD Software title! Check out the full schedule details below:
The fun will begin at 12:15 pm eastern on Aug. 18 with the QuakeCon preshow, with id Software’s Marty Stratton kicking off the main event at 1:00 pm eastern with a brief Welcome Message.
Immediately following the Welcome, fans can tune in to a variety of streams from North America, Brazil, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, and more countries around the world. Streams focused on games will include existing and upcoming titles, like Redfall, The Elder Scrolls Online, Fallout 76, Ghostwire: Tokyo, Quake, and more. Expect special appearances from developers and other personalities.
In addition, the lineup includes fun community-focused shows like a Quiz-a-Thon Game Show, Cooking In-Game Recipes, Interactive Fundraising Shows, the legendary Dirty Keyboard Contest, PC Building Guides, and much more.
