See what’s going on at the upcoming QuakeCon 2018

Can’t wait to see that sexy DOOM Eternal gameplay


With Bethesda’s QuakeCon 2018 right around the corner, the company has announced the planned activities for the event. While sure everyone wants to just see DOOM Eternal,  there’s a host of other stuff to see and do during the frag-filled weekend.  So let’s take a look at what’s planned.

  • Keynote:
    Friday, August 10th @ 11 am CT – QuakeCon’s Keynote Address returns, with updates planned for Quake Champions, RAGE 2, The Elder Scrolls Online, and, of course, the savage gameplay reveal of DOOM Eternal with Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin from id Software. Fans who can’t make it – and you really should! – can watch the keynote live online at https://www.twitch.tv/bethesda.

  • Fallout 76 Panel and fan Q&A session:
    Saturday, August 11 @ 11 am CT – Todd Howard and others from Bethesda Game Studios will take fans through a deeper dive into the character system and Perks coming in Fallout 76, followed by a Q&A with the team to address fans’ most pressing questions. Can’t make it? That’s a mistake… but you can still watch online at https://mixer.com/bethesda or https://www.twitch.tv/bethesda.

  • Tournaments:
    Thursday, August 9 – Friday, August 10 – The Elder Scrolls: Legends Masters Series qualifiers are underway and set to culminate with two days of competition and finals at QuakeCon. Sixteen of the best Legends players in the world will convene at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center to battle for their share of a $50,000 prize pool. The entire tournament can be watched online at https://www.twitch.tv/teslegends.

    Friday, August 10 – Sunday, August 12 – The next Major event for Quake Champions will take place at QuakeCon 2018. The QuakeCon Open will bring some of the best esports players in the world to battle it out in 2v2 for their share of a $175,000 prize pool. And, as a bonus – players from the top eight 2v2 teams will move on to compete solo in a 1v1, winner-take-all Duel showdown for a shot at ultimate glory and $25,000. Be there to cheer and boo in person, or, if you can’t, watch online at https://www.twitch.tv/quake.

That’s a lot of stuff to do and watch when QuakeCon 2018 starts up. And if you’re like me and unable to attend this year, you’re not out of luck. As most of the cool stuff will be streamed on either https://mixer.com/bethesda or https://www.twitch.tv/bethesda.

What am I looking forward to? Hands down, it has to be the gameplay reveal of DOOM Eternal. I loved the original DOOM 2 and the DOOM 2016 reboot. If they can pull off that magic again then we’re all in for a treat. Not that I have any doubts, mind you.

QuakeCon will begin on Thursday, August 9 and ends on Sunday, August 12.
