July is going to be hotter than Hell when Bethesda arrives alongside many of the studios under their massive umbrella and 2019 is already looking to be the biggest year yet.
Update (4/2/2019 – 2:02pm): Bethesda has confirmed that this years QuakeCon is now called “QuakeCon: Year of Doom” and the registrations will begin Thursday, April 11, at 10 ET. The website has been updated to reflect the changes and help bring it up to date.
For those looking to get BYOC tickets, there’s a minor change in how seating will work this year, “This year, the registration process will be slightly different from years past – BYOC players will not choose a seat when they register. Seat selection will take place at a later date which will be announced soon.
Stay tuned to the QuakeCon Twitter for weekly updates and reminders about registration and other information,” stated a Bethesda spokesperson, ensuring that BYOC players will get to select their seats, but not at the time of registration. It sounds like the BYOC is about to get a whole lot bigger moving forward.
Those looking forward to Master Pancake Theater can rejoice as the show will return for QuakeCon 2019.
Original: Every year our excitement builds when it comes to Bethesda’s QuakeCon events. Since 2014, we’ve been happily attending the event on an annual basis, getting our first looks at some of their biggest upcoming titles, and we even get the chance to sit and talk with some of the biggest names in the industry.
Now, it seems that QuakeCon is about to rip and tear its way to the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Resort on July 25th and ending its reign of terror on July 28th. During this period, fans will be able to get their hands on some of Bethesda’s biggest and latest titles, which will undoubtedly include first-looks at DOOM Eternal, some hands-on time with the (by then a few months old) RAGE 2, a deeper look into The Elder Scrolls Online, and even a glimpse at some projects that they have in the works.
But most surprisingly of it all, we know Bethesda has a lot in the works with upcoming titles such as The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield, and our occasional hopes for a Quake Champions on console announcement. But don’t fret, you’ll probably get some hands-on time with titles that are on the way including The Elder Scrolls: Blades and a handful of indie titles during the weekend-long event.
Just don’t forget to press paws when you see our pals at Dallas Pets Alive. Also, stay tuned for the official QuakeCon site, which is currently being revamped, for the latest news and information about the event.
