Bethesda announces QuakeCon Europe is coming to London

Bethesda has announced it’s bringing QuakeCon to Europe, and the inaugural show is coming to the UK.

Taking place July 26 – 27, 2019, the event – which will be held at Printworks in London, UK – will “run simultaneously with the traditional convention in Dallas, Texas”, enabling European fans to get involved, too. While free to attend, attendees will have to register for tickets.

“Fresh for the ‘Year of Doom, fans attending can expect to gain hands-on access to the latest and greatest games that Bethesda has to offer,” Bethesda teases in its press release. “Doom Eternal takes centre stage across this two-day event and will be publicly playable for the first time outside of North America. In addition to this, a range of existing and unreleased titles will be available to play.

“Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Rage 2, Quake Champions, Fallout 76, and The Elder Scrolls Online will be just a few of the other titles available to play, but that’s not all. Not only will QuakeCon Europe host the first hands-on Doom Eternal fan experience outside of North America, but it will also offer opportunities for fans to see where it all began with a retro area showcasing the humble beginnings of Doom.”

While the publisher has confirmed there will not be a BYOC at QuakeCon Europe this year, there will be art galleries, panels from games industry experts, a “tabletop corner”, and fans will get “a chance to meet some of Bethesda’s development talent”.
