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.

We’re back sharing our favorite news from around the web. On the docket for today, we’ve got links and videos to share for Skyrim, Dishonored, Wolfenstein, and The Evil Within.
To begin, many of us at the office enjoyed watching “Man at Arms” Tony Swatton create (by popular demand) a bone-smashing Orcish Battleaxe from Skyrim. It’s clear Tony has made his Smithing skill Legendary many times over, and we hope to see him create more Skyrim weapons in the future.
What else is happening on the internet with our games? Let’s continue…

Following last week’s nominations, we’re thrilled to share news that The Elder Scrolls Online has been named Best Role Playing Game of E3 2013… congrats to the team at ZeniMax Online Studios! For a look at the game’s other E3 awards, check out our post from last month.
As a company, ESO is the fourth Bethesda-published game to win Best Role Playing Game. Previously Bethesda Game Studios’ Oblivion (2005), Fallout 3 (2008), and Skyrim (2011) received the same accolade.
“Dungeons represent some of the toughest challenges in The Elder Scrolls Online, and they add yet another adventure you can choose to experience as you explore Tamriel. We hope this peek behind the portcullis helped give you some insight about dungeon design, and we’re excited to see how you choose to tackle these dangerous delves in your own groups. Make sure to share this with your prospective party members so they’ll be prepared, too!”
