QuakeCon Europe coming to London

Doom Eternal, Wolfenstein: Youngblood and more playable at two-day event

Bethesda is to bring its annual QuakeCon convention to the UK for the first time.

Set to be held at Printworks, London on July 26 and 27, QuakeCon Europe is a free event that will run simultaneously with the traditional QuakeCon in Dallas.

The company has promised hands-on access to its latest titles, including Doom Eternal, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Rage 2, Quake Champions, Fallout 76 and The Elder Scrolls Online.

The event will mark the first time Doom Eternal will be publicly playable outside of North America.

QuakeCon Europe will also feature art galleries, a retro area, panels from games industry experts, a table top corner, and “a chance to meet some of Bethesda’s development talent”.

Fans can register their interest now at www.quakecon.org/europe.

The North American QuakeCon has been running since 1996 and traditionally includes a large, paid, bring-your-own-computer LAN party for competitive play. The event usually attracts around 10,000 attendees.

Bethesda says QuakeCon 2019 will commemorate Doom’s 25th anniversary with “Doom-inspired activities”, events, developer panels and “a few surprises”.
