Ladies and gentlemen, that time of the year has begun to get underway as we prepare for our favorite event of the year, and the very one we are looking forwards to. For many of you, you have already known that QuakeCon is one of the most distinguished festivals of all time. Originally started in 1996, QuakeCon premiered in Dallas, Texas, where it has remained growing ever since.

This year fans can once more find themselves in the Dallas metro through August 24th to August 27th this year.

As usual, the year will remain free thanks to id Software, Bethesda Softworks, and the amazing QuakeCon volunteer staff, and this years sponsors as well as exhibitors.

However, the event location has changed from the usual Hilton Anatole where we’ve been seeing it for the past few years. This year, attendees, exhibitors, and even developers can expect to visit QuakeCon this year at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, TX. You’ll want to take at a special message from Bethesda below.

Grapevine, TX 76051

Guests can make room reservations at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center by calling 1.877.491.5138 or going online to: https://aws.passkey.com/go/QuakeCon. A special room rate of $185 per night is available when you reference QuakeCon 2017!


Entering its 22nd year, QuakeCon 2017 will continue to celebrate games and the people who play them by hosting North America’s largest BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Computer) LAN party. With over two thousand BYOC seats available, participants can showcase their custom computers and join the QuakeCon gamer community to play their favorite games either solo or against one another on the same local area network.

QuakeCon is free for general attendees and open to the public. This year’s event will offer diverse activities for all, including those who choose not to bring their own computer. Attendees are first to see sneak peeks of Bethesda’s upcoming titles and announcements while also attending a wide array of presentations, tournaments, workshops and exhibits from leading tech companies showcasing the newest gaming accessories and hardware.
