QuakeCon, one of the summer’s most popular events, has unveiled its completed plans for 2021. Bethesda will host QuakeCon 2021 exclusively online, as it did in 2020, renaming the event QuakeCon at Home for the second time.
QuakeCon at Home will begin on August 19 and will feature a wide range of intriguing Bethesda material. This includes appearances and announcements in games, philanthropic initiatives, and community enjoyment through a variety of influencer broadcasts and gaming events.
QuakeCon will begin with a launch event on its global webcast, as it does every year. The first episode will premiere on Thursday, August 19 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET. There have been no specifics released about Bethesda’s intentions for its debut event. The Elder Scrolls Online, Fallout 76, Doom Eternal’s DLC, Ghostwire Tokyo, and Deathloop were among the titles showcased by Bethesda in 2020. To summarize, if Bethesda has any games to present, they will be shown at QuakeCon 2021.
The charity was an important element of last year’s QuakeCon, and it will be again this year. Bethesda takes great pleasure in using QuakeCon to generate money for both major and small charity organizations. Asian Americans Advancing Justice, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the Trevor Project, and UNICEF are among this year’s partners. All of Bethesda’s digital QuakeCon participants are encouraged to donate as much as they can.
In a more local endeavor, QuakeCon 2021 will sell two t-shirts, with 100% of the proceeds going to two local Dallas organizations. Pet-themed parodies of Bethesda’s games are featured on the t-shirts. The Pugcubus for Doom Eternal and Catloop for Deathloop are both lovely. The Dallas Pets Alive campaign to encourage adoption and Four Paws, a global animal care group, are the two organizations being sponsored. Both t-shirts are $25 and are now available for purchase.

Because community members cannot BYOC to the event itself, Bethesda is also encouraging gamers at home to participate in a virtual QuakeCon at Home BYOC (“bring your own computer”). With the aid of Bethesda’s Twitch team, players will be able to connect on the platform. Those who are broadcasting can apply for a spot on the official QuakeCon Twitch Team website.
Clearly, there’s a lot more information regarding QuakeCon 2021 to give. Little information regarding Bethesda’s multi-day livestream has been released. Between now and the commencement of QuakeCon on August 19, a complete schedule will be released. QuakeCon will hopefully return in 2022, live and person.
