QuakeCon at Home
sees the long-running event make its digital return. Taking place over the weekend of August 20-22 (which is like, next week somehow) the full QuakeCon has been unveiled and there looks to be a very apt announcement coming.
Namely the Celebrating 25 Years of Quake with id Software and Machine Games
panel at 4:05am AEST August 20 hinting at something new in addition to looking at the "the impact and legacy of the original Quake on its 25th anniversary".
MachineGames, known for the recent Wolfenstein
reboot and the upcoming Indiana Jones
game currently in development, only has a small connection to the original Quake
. That being a Dimensions of Past
episode created by the studio to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Quake.
So then, is this hinting at something new and Quake-related from MachineGames? Well, it sounds like it. And we're hoping it's more than a new map pack. A remaster or remake would be awesome. Especially if it was being built using id Tech 6.
In addition to tournaments and livestreams -- there's a very cool Fallout 76 – Playing with UFC Middleweight Rob Whittaker
ANZ stream 2:30pm on August 20 AEST) -- QuakeCon will also be the place to get the latest on all things Bethesda
