QuakeCon 2014 will open its doors from July 17 to 20 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas, Bethesda announced today.
The 19th annual convention will host exhibitions of upcoming games and hardware from Bethesda and partners, as well as what the publisher calls "North America's largest bring-your-own-computer LAN party."
Registration is free and discounted hotel reservations are available now, according to the Bethesda blog. Updates on registration will begin in February.
QuakeCon traditionally begins with a keynote from id Software co-founder John Carmack. However, Carmack quit id in November to focus on his duties as Oculus VR's chief technology officer - a company whose product he praised in previous keynotes.
Update: Carmack tweeted the following about continuing his involvement with QuakeCon:
I have offered to give my traditional talk at Quakecon, we'll see if it is accepted.— John Carmack (@ID_AA_Carmack) January 30, 2014
