It is that time again folks, QuakeCon 2017 has been announced and will be taking place on August 24th-27th. This will be our 7th year covering the event and I have to say I am more excited than ever! The Gaylord Texan is the perfect venue for an event like QuakeCon. Year after Year the staff tries their hardest to make the event bigger and bigger. The Gaylord Texan basically has it’s own city on the inside of the hotel, and I think it is time to turn that city into Quakeconville!
This year’s event will feature the historic BYOC and like always will show exclusive presentations and hands-on for several of Bethesda’s upcoming games, including DOOM, Dishonored 2, Quake Champions and more. For more information on Quakecon 2017 please make sure check back for the latest on the event and more!
