Once again the annual QuakeCon has kicked off in Dallas, Texas, and with it comes a number of presentations and keynotes from various developers under the Bethesda and id Software logos but also the usual tournaments seen from past years. From the press release:
As has become tradition, the first day of QuakeCon will feature a keynote address from the legendary John Carmack, id Software’s co-founder and technical director.
Along with John’s keynote, this year’s QuakeCon will feature the first public gameplay presentations for The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Evil Within — plus a special panel featuring Dishonored’s Raphael Colantonio, Ricardo Bare and Seth Shain. These events will all take place on the show’s Ventrilo Main Stage. Additionally, attendees will be able to play The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein, and Dishonored’s final game add-on, The Brigmore Witches, in the QuakeCon exhibit hall.
As per last year, the event will be livestreamed through two channels, with the Bethesda Twitch

Well at least not in the Carmack keynote, he just denied an audience question on the game.

Ive been waiting to buy quake 3 + TA for a while for my 2 machines. That was my first real PC game that i spent a f***load of hours playing. And never online cause i didnt know how.
Also thinking quake 4 and Rage for my old man as he loved quake 2 back in the day and was the reason we got quake 3 in the first place.
