QuakeCon heads to Europe for first time


Bethesda Softworks has announced that this year, QuakeCon will take place in Europe for the first time in the event’s 22-year history.

The publisher of the Quake, Rage, Doom and Wolfenstein games said: “Today we’re very excited to introduce you to the evolution of QuakeCon. This year, for the first time ever, Bethesda Softworks will host ‘QuakeCon Europe’ at Printworks, London, across 26-27 July. The free event will run simultaneously with the traditional convention in Dallas, Texas.”

Bethesda Software added: “Fresh for the ‘Year of Doom’, fans attending can expect to gain hands-on access to the latest and greatest games that Bethesda has to offer. Doom Eternaltakes centre stage across this two-day event and will be publicly playable for the first time outside of North America. In addition to this, a range of existing and unreleased titles will be available to play.

“Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Rage 2, Quake Champions, Fallout 76 andThe Elder Scrolls Onlinewill be just a few of the other titles available to play, but that’s not all. Not only will QuakeCon Europe host the first hands-on Doom Eternal fan experience outside of North America, but it will also offer opportunities for fans to see where it all began with a retro area showcasing the humble beginnings of Doom. Further experiences at the convention will include art galleries, panels from games industry experts, a table top corner, and a chance to meet some of Bethesda’s development talent.”
