Fallout 4 - Vault Training Center Bethesda Game Studios/Bethesda Softworks

QuakeCon, ZeniMax Media’s annual convention for fans of Bethesda Softworks and id Software games, kicked off today with a full weekend planned of esports tournaments and reveals for upcoming games like Doom Eternal, Rage 2 and Fallout 76.

Getting hype for these anticipated new games, may get you jonesing to revisit some old favorites. Several retailers are running sales on previous QuakeCon standouts including Doom, Fallout 4 and Skyrim. Whether you’re playing on PC, PS4 or Xbox One you’ve got plenty of options. Switch users even have one or two deals to check out as well.


The QuakeCon sales at Steam, Green Man Gaming and Fanatical are practically identical, but Green Man Gaming is offering an extra 15 percent off anything in the sale with code EXTRA15. If you see a deal you want to grab on Steam, it’s probably 15 percent cheaper at Green Man Gaming, and they’ll just send you a Steam key anyway.

PS4 and Xbox One

Sony and Microsoft are both running QuakeCon sales at their respective online stores, with Fallout 4, Doom and Prey down to $15 on PS4 and Xbox One. The best deal from both sales, though, is probably on the Skyrim: Special Edition + Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition bundle for $39.99. That shaves an extra $10 off the sale price of two of Todd Howard’s best games.


While the Nintendo eShop hasn’t acknowledged QuakeCon in any way, two Bethesda games available on Switch are discounted at Amazon. Skyrim and Doom are down to $50 each, which is $10 off the usual price tag.
