QuakeCon 2014 kicks off today

QuakeCon 2014 — the annual gathering of all things Bethesda and id Software — kicks off today at the at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

In addition to daily tournaments in both The Elder Scrolls Online PvP and the recently-unveiled Battlecry, today's festivities include the reveal of the next Doom at 6 p.m. Central Time. Tomorrow will feature a panel from The Elder Scrolls Online developer ZeniMax Online Studios about the game's future, as well as a Magic: The Gathering tournament. On Saturday, attendees attend a panel featuring Obsidian Entertainment CEO Feargus Urquhart, former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe and others discussing "Designing the Perfect Game."

Matches and panels will be livestreamed on the official QuakeCon Twitch channel, with ZeniMax's panel streaming on its own channel. Unlike previous years, however, this QuakeCon will not feature a keynote from id Software co-founder and current Oculus CTO John Carmack.

Polygon will be in attendance covering the show, which runs until Sunday, July 20. More details on the weekend's festivities can be found on the QuakeCon schedule.
