QuakeCon 2011 Dates Announced: August 4-7


Today we’re happy to announce that QuakeCon 2011 is dated and ready for for your calendars.

What’s QuakeCon? Why, it’s only the world’s largest LAN party! What’s a LAN? Well, it’s where you play games with your computers all on the same network for super-fast and social gaming. What’s a party? Oh come on, don’t be an id-iot.

The thing about QuakeCon is that it’s way more than just a simple LAN get-together. We’ll have our latest and greatest games there to show, as well as tons of other exciting things to check out at the Expo Floor. On top of that, industry guests hold panels where they talk about games and interesting things at many hours of the day. It’s a veritable dark carnival of gaming entertainment.

If you’ve never attended, the atmosphere in the BYOC — that’s “Bring Your Own Computer” for the uninitiated — is like the best possible lazy Sunday spent with like-minded gamers. You order a pizza, you check out a tournament, you play a little Quake or Fallout. It’s basically a big weekend hang-out session — and you’re invited!
