If you were wondering if id Software would continue to hold its annual QuakeCon event, wonder no more. The developer's parent company Bethesda Softworks announced today that QuakeCon 2013 will indeed be held in Dallas, Texas from August 1-4.
The event will once again be held at the Hilton Anatole hotel and you can go ahead and make reservations at a special QuakeCon rate of $159 a night. The event itself is the largest LAN event in North America as thousands of people show up to to QuakeCon's massive BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) area to play PC games of all types.
Registration for QuakeCon 2013 has yet to launch. In the past, registration has been offered for free but there have been options for paid QuakeCon attendees with extra content and privileges. Of course, there's lots of other things to do at QuakeCon, including the chance to play upcoming games, get demos of future id Software and Bethesda Softworks titles and listen to id Software founder John Carmack as he gives his highly technical QuakeCon keynote.
So, will we finally get to see the new Doom game that was announced nearly five years ago at QuakeCon 2013? We should soon see.
