QuakeCon Year of Doom

If you were to say that Quakecon 2019 is Doomed, you would be correct. Not only because that's the on point headline that Bethesda used in today's press release, but also because Quakecon 2019 is focusing on Doom! It's not even being called QuakeCon 2019, but is instead being called QuakeCon: Year of DOOM!


Even with all this Doom, there's not a whole lot of gloom to be seen, unless you aren't able to get the registrations you wanted for the event. To ensure that doesn't happen, you'll want to visit the revamped Quakecon website starting Thursday, April 11 at 10 AM (ET) to be one of the first in line for registration. This year's QuakeCon event takes place from July 25-28 at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Dallas, TX. Registration is again free for the general public.

Bethesda says that registration is a bit different than in previous years. BYOC players will not choose a seat when they register but will instead select a seat at a later date. That date? To be announced.

In honor of 25 brutal years of id Software’s venerable franchise, DOOM, this year’s QuakeCon will be jam-packed with hellish activities and events that look back at a quarter century of demon-stomping and look forward at what’s to come with DOOM Eternal.

QuakeCon: Year of DOOM will still bring diehard fans the QuakeCon experience they’ve come to love, with the massive BYOC, exclusive panels, and hands-on with games from Bethesda and more. Of course, fans can also look forward to fun things to do with friends, from parties to esports tournaments to Master Pancake Theater.
