Now Playing: Doom Eternal, Rage 2, And All The News From The QuakeCon Keynote - GS News Update

Update: Bethesda's keynote is now over, and as promised, it showed off the first brutal gameplay footage of Doom Eternal, along with some more footage of Rage 2. If you missed it, you can watch a replay of the entire presentation below. The original story follows.

Bethesda's annual fan event, QuakeCon, is back, and this year's convention promises to be the biggest one in the company's history. The event takes place this whole weekend, from August 9-12, and will feature panels, announcements, giveaways, developer interviews, and much more.

QuakeCon 2018 begins with The Elder Scrolls: Legends Masters Series qualifiers on Thursday, August 9, but the event will formally kick off with a big keynote address on Friday, August 10, at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM BST. The presentation will provide new details on a number of Bethesda's recent and upcoming titles, including Quake Champions, Rage 2, and The Elder Scrolls Online, but the most exciting reveal will be the world premiere of Doom Eternal, the new sequel to the 2016 reboot.

There's an added incentive to tune in to the keynote; fans who've linked their Bethesda.net and Elder Scrolls Online accounts with their Twitch account will be eligible to win some prizes in various Bethesda games just for watching the presentation. You can find the full list of prizes here.

The following day, Bethesda will host a Q&A session about its highly anticipated online RPG, Fallout 76. The panel takes place on Saturday, August 11, at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET and will feature Todd Howard and other developers from Bethesda Game Studios answering fan questions and providing a "deeper dive into the character system and Perks coming in Fallout 76."

In addition to the keynote and panels, Bethesda is hosting a Quake Champions tournament, which kicks off on Friday and continues into Sunday. The entire competition will be streamed live on the Quake Twitch account.

Bethesda really is establishing themselves as a heavy hitter in the gaming industry and this latest conference only validates that claim. I foresee Bethesda (as well as a whole host of other developers.) showcasing their own wares at separate events moving forward; events that back in the day used to be only at E3.

Speaking of E3, I can’t help but point out the amount of game developers having their own press conferences at the event. Just this year we were privy to conferences from Square Soft, Ubisoft, Bethesda, and EA; all conferences that were separate from the big 3 (Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft.).

I guess it comes with the territory when your company is growing and for Bethesda it would seem that they still have a whole lot of growing they plan on doing.
