This year the 25th Annual QuakeCon will be the first QuakeCon held from the comfort of your gaming chair. But don’t let the format fool you, the QuakeCon team will be pulling out all the stops.
Starting August 7 and ending August 9 will be three days of livestreams from around the world, tournaments, charity fundraising, and more. With a huge list of QuakeCon partners such as Corsair, noblechairs, Razer and SteelSeries, plus some sweet swag its a QuakeCon not to be missed!
Here are a few QuakeCon at Home highlights:
- Global Super Stream – QuakeCon at Home will feature a weekend packed with streamed content from around the globe, kicking off on Friday, August 7 at 11:00am AM CST with Bethesda’s QuakeCon Digital Welcome. The event schedule will feature round-the clock programming with special influencer streams, surprises, and our very own Bethesda Community teams from around the globe – all streaming from home in support of charitable causes. Stay tuned for more info, including the full stream schedule, in the coming weeks!
- QuakeCon Twitch Team – Playing and sharing games with friends in the BYOC is the core of QuakeCon, and this year the global QuakeCon community will unite and connect for the first time through the official QuakeCon at Home Twitch Team. The Team will celebrate QuakeCon, play and share games, and help raise money for the QuakeCon-supported charities. Some players will be featured on the QuakeCon Twitch Team page.
- Esports Tournament – It’s not QuakeCon without a tournament full of frags, so that too has gone virtual for 2020. The 2019-2020 Quake Pro League season will conclude at our Quake World Championship, Sunday, August 9 at 4:00pm CST. From the comfort of their own homes, the top 24 players around the globe will compete to win their share of $150,000 Prizing and the title of Season Champion. Quake fans can watch online live via the Global Super Stream – stay tuned for details.
- Charity Initiatives – Raising money for charities has been a key part of QuakeCon for years, and attendees have made a huge impact for local, national and international groups. We are excited to continue this legacy in both a global and local way. QuakeCon players will be able to donate to organizations directly from the official QuakeCon at Home Twitch stream, including Direct Relief, UNICEF, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and The Trevor Project.
- Animal Charities: Everyone will miss the good doggos who visit the Exhibit Hall every year, so this year we are bringing the furry fundraising global. QuakeCon at Home will have new, exclusive “Dogvahkiin” and “Catodemon” t-shirts for sale, with 100 percent of the profits going to both our long-time Dallas animal adoption partner, Dallas Pets Alive, as well as FOUR PAWS, a global animal welfare organisation.
