Bethesda and id Software announce online QuakeCon for August

Will include livestreams, tournaments, and more.

Bethesda and id Software have set the dates for this year's QuakeCon online event - which replaces the live show cancelled earlier this year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic - with the whole thing scheduled to get underway in early August.

This year's QuakeCon marks the 25th anniversary of the event, and when Bethesda made the decision to cancel the live show earlier this year, it told fans,"We hope to work with you to come up with other ways to celebrate the spirit of QuakeCon this August, and we look forward to the return of this amazing event next year".

It seems those alternative plans are now firmly in place, and a special online QuakeCon - appropriately titled QuakeCon at Home - is now scheduled to fill the same calendar slot as its cancelled predecessor, running from 7th-9th August this year.

Bethesda and id Software haven't yet fully detailed the new online event, but the companies are promising "livestreams, tournaments, charity fundraising, and a few fun secrets." More details are due to be shared in the coming weeks.
