    Thousands of gamers gather in one location to play with their friends on a giant gaming network, see the latest in cool technology, hear about upcoming games and compete in world-class tournaments.

    Doors to QuakeCon will open on Thursday, August 12th at 9:00am and will remain open until noon on Sunday, August 15th. The event is free to all attendees thanks to the support of id and Bethesda Softworks, as well as the QuakeCon volunteer staff and the 2010 event sponsors and exhibitors.

    id Software and Bethesda Softworks have announced that all attendee registration for QuakeCon 2010 will be handled on-site through a new and improved registration process. Designed to reduce the time BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Computer) attendees spend waiting to register equipment, and generally better serve all those in attendance, this new and entirely on-site process will streamline every guest’s registration experience while still accommodating anyone that wants to take part in the BYOC

    QuakeCon 2009 was a record-breaking gathering for gamers with over 7,000 guests. With attendance expected to increase sharply this year, QuakeCon will once again host North America’s largest BYOC LAN party, with thousands of gamers hooking their systems up to play on a world-class network.

    Of course, it wouldn’t be QuakeCon without the drama and intensity of the big-money pro tournaments, featuring id Software’s free-to-play, web-based multiplayer game QUAKE LIVE.

    New to this year’s event is a 250-seat tournament arena that will allow spectators to get up close and personal with the competitors.

    Attendees can watch top matches live throughout every day of the competitions on large screens with simultaneous play-by-play commentary from this year’s shoutcasters.

    QuakeCon also offers non-stop fun and entertainment for those who don’t bring their own computers. The world’s leading technology companies will be on hand to demonstrate their latest hardware and software in the 45,000 square foot exhibit hall, and every day of QuakeCon is packed with contests, entertainment, announcements, panel discussions, and parties.

    About QuakeCon:

    Often described as the “Woodstock of Gaming,” QuakeCon is a four-day, non-stop celebration of games and the people who play them. Free to all and open to the public, QuakeCon 2010 will feature North America’s largest Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BYOC) LAN party for nearly 3,000 people, drawings and contests with big cash prizes, exhibits with the latest games and hardware, and non-stop entertainment, parties and events. First created in 1996 by a group of friends on IRC and now going into its fifteenth year, QuakeCon remains true to its original mission as an event created by gamers, for gamers. Sponsored by id Software, Bethesda Softworks and other industry-leading software and hardware manufacturers, QuakeCon continues to be run by a dedicated group of volunteers, including an executive team with more than 75 years of combined experience producing the event. Over 7,000 people attended QuakeCon 2009.
