The dates for QuakeCon 2011 are in. The event takes place in August, from 4th-7th, in Dallas, Texas - where limousines are fronted by bull horns.
QuakeCon used to be a place for id Software-related celebrations that usually involved huge old-school LAN parties, i.e. bring your own computer, plug it in and play an hours-long game of Quake.
That essence still remains, but there's a lot more going on now id Software is owned by ZeniMax - parent company of Bethesda.
In August, Bethesda will still have Rage, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Doom 4 to release. Brink and Hunted will have been on shop shelves long before.
