QuakeCon 2014, the annual gathering of everything Bethesda, will take place July 17-20, event organizers announced today.

For its 19th year running, the event will return to the Hilton Anatole hotel in Dallas, Texas. The four-day event will culminate in the annual bring-your-own-computer LAN party as well as presentations, panels, hardware demonstrations, announcements and the chance to go hands-on with new and upcoming video games under the Bethesda Softworks banner.

Hotel room reservations are already open (https://resweb.passkey.com/Resweb.do?mode=welcome_ei_new&eventID=10750560), according to a post on the Bethesda Blog. (http://www.bethblog.com/2014/01/30/quakecon-2014-moves-to-july/) Interested attendees can take advantage of a special $159 per night rate while rooms last just mention QuakeCon when booking. Badges for QuakeCon 2014 are, as with previous years, free and available to the general public.

At last year's QuakeCon which took place Aug. 1-4, 2013   we got our hands on downloadable content for Arkane Studios' Dishonored as well as upcoming shooter reboot Wolfenstein: The New Order and heard talks from id Software's John Carmack, now CTO at virtual reality company Oculus (http://www.polygon.com/2013/11/22/5134500/id-software-founder-john-carmack-resigns).

As the old joke goes: "Why is QuakeCon in Dallas in August?" "Because the surface of the Sun was fully booked!"

July should be marginally better. Maybe not over 100F everyday. Maybe.

I wish QuakeCon would come to New York instead :\ seems like a much better location than down in Dallas IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SUMMER. It's pretty damn hot down there.  :o

What's QuakeCon without a keynote?


I also groaned hard when I saw the modding panel taking questions some quakecon or two ago....
