What to expect at QuakeCon 2016

Posted: 2 August 2016 4:16 pm News


Before we jet off to Dallas, Texas to cover Bethesda’s QuakeCon video game conference, we thought we would take you through what to expect from this year’s event.

Running from 4-7 August, the 20th edition of Bethesda’s annual QuakeCon event – aka “the Woodstock of gaming" - is set to be its biggest yet. As well as the famed BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) tournament focused on developer id Software’s legendary FPS series Quake, a host of other products will be on show. In fact, since id Software’s 2009 acquisition by Bethesda Softworks, QuakeCon has become its own E3. The event has become the launch point for a host of fresh news on the entire stable of Bethesda products, and as such, the 2016 event is packed with games.
