QuakeCon 2010 has been officially dated and will be held in Dallas, TX on August 12th-15th. This will be the first QuakeCon since ID Software was acquired by Bethesda late last year. The usual things will take place at the event (tournaments, hang with game devs, learn about new games). I'm guessing that we'll see more of Rage
there and maybe some of the newer Bethesda titles (which will hopefully be revealed at E3). Certainly nice to see Bethesda keeping the QuakeCon tradition alive.
WHAT: QuakeCon is a free convention held yearly in Dallas, Texas brought to you by id Software, Bethesda Softworks and their parent company ZeniMax Media Inc.. Thousands of gamers gather in one location to play with their friends on a giant gaming network, see the latest in cool technology, hear about upcoming games and compete in world-class tournaments.
WHO: Fans of computer and videogames. The event is FREE to all attendees thanks to the support of id and Bethesda as well as the QuakeCon volunteer staff and the 2010 event sponsors and exhibitors.
WHEN: August 12-15, 2010
WHERE: Hilton Anatole Hotel - Dallas, Texas
WHY: Play in world-class tournaments, meet and interact with game developers, be the first to learn new information about upcoming computer and videogames and have the opportunity to frag with friends on QuakeCon’s massive Bring Your Own Computer network.
More details about QuakeCon 2010 will be revealed in the coming weeks.
