Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein and Dishonored will lead QuakeCon from August 1

QuakeCon is coming, and it sees (mostly) in first-person. Once John Carmack finishes the two-hour techno-babble ritual necessary to sustain id Software’s bewilderment-powered monster rigs, he’ll hand over to a who’s who of top Bethesda developers: Arkane, Tango Gameworks, Zenimax Online and Starbreeze alumni MachineGames.

There's a teaser below, but it seems to think you'll be swayed by the presence of models:

I for one have been glad to see QuakeCon become Bethesda’s very own expo since id’s acquisition, and nothing appears to have changed this year.

The Elder Scrolls Online, The Evil Within and the new laser-wanged Wolfenstein will prop up the Ventrilo Main Stage with presentations, but I’m hammering my keyboard most excitedly for this next part of the sentence, which features a panel hosted by Arkane founder Raphael Colantonio, Dishonored lead designer Ricardo Bare, and co-designer and producer Seth Shain.

The Elder Scrolls MMO, Wolfenstein, and Dishonored’s second slice of story DLC, the Brigmore Witches, will all be proffering gamepads to attendees on the show floor. Journalists haven’t been let anywhere near the latter two yet, incidentally. The traditional BYOC LAN party is also planned, and Nvidia and the mighty Minecraft EDU are among the long list of exhibitors.

The show will run from 10am Thursday, August 1 through to 6pm Sunday, August 4 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas. Admission is free, thanks to a bevy of volunteers and Bethesda and id’s combined pots of gold. Simply register here. Are any of you lot in the Texas area, by any chance?

Every year, I hear "QuakeCon"... and every year, I'm disappointed that id software has less and less to do with the show. No Doom 4. No Quake V. No new franchises. No new versions of older franchises (like a Doom HD, or a Quake Arena port to 3DS and Vita - I'd settle for that!). Don't get me wrong - I'm glad Bethesda has co-opted the show in recent years, because otherwise it would just be really, really boring. I like them showing off their upcoming lineup.

It's just clear that id can't support their own convention anymore. And if they can't do that, they should invite other people to the party. With Wolfenstein showing, why not invite Apogee over, since they're actually DOING THINGS this year? As far as I'm concerned, Wolfenstein and Rise of the Triad should be shown together at the same conventions all the time (the original RotT was originally going to be Wolfenstein 2).
