Bethesda’s QuakeCon at Home will be happening in August

QuakeCon is a long-standing tradition in the gaming world, with the conference celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. But like pretty much every large scale event that was due to take place in the gaming world in 2020, the event has been forced online.

Never fear though, ‘QuakeCon at Home’ will still be jam-packed with streaming, esports tournaments and will feature a few surprises. It’s all going to kick-off on August 7 and will conclude on August 9. Quakecon at home

Despite the chaos caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s still been quite the year for Bethesda, with DOOM Eternal coming earlier this year and titles like Deathloop to still get excited about.

In keeping with tradition, QuakeCon at Home will have a strong charity focus, with players around the world able to donate to various organisations including UNICEF, Direct Relief and more.
