The return of Peace, Love, and Rockets is nearly here!
Today we’re exactly three weeks from the kickoff of QuakeCon 2013 and excited to share updated details on the 18th running of North America’s largest LAN event. Read on for more on our keynote, presentations, panel, and exhibit hall sponsors.
As has become tradition, the first day of QuakeCon will feature a keynote address from the legendary John Carmack, id Software’s co-founder and technical director.
Along with John’s keynote, this year’s QuakeCon will feature the first public gameplay presentations for The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Evil Within — plus a special panel featuring Dishonored’s Raphael Colantonio, Ricardo Bare and Seth Shain. These events will all take place on the show’s Ventrilo Main Stage. Additionally, attendees will be able to play The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein, and Dishonored’s final game add-on, The Brigmore Witches, in the QuakeCon exhibit hall.
The Elder Scrolls Online, the next chapter in the award-winning series and the first to bring the legendary experience online, Wolfenstein: The New Order, a reimagining of the popular shooter franchise developed by MachineGames, and Dishonored: Brigmore Witches, the third add-on pack for Arkane Studios’ critically-acclaimed first-person action game, will all be playable at the show.
