Official opening on August 19th via global stream
QuakeCon 2021 will officially open its virtual gates on Thursday, August 19 at 8:00 p.m. CEST. There will be various influencers, Bethesda’s global community teams, developers and of course there will also be updates to our games. The QuakeCon team also has some exclusive content up its sleeve for the community. It is also streamed for a good cause. Further information and the full program schedule will follow in the coming weeks.
The focus of QuakeCon is playing together with friends in the BYOC – and this year it should not be any different. Once again, the global QuakeCon community can come together through the official QuakeCon Twitch team. The team will celebrate QuakeCon, play and stream games, and help raise funds for the charity organizations supported by QuakeCon. Some of the players are to be featured on the QuakeCon Twitch team page.
You can register for the team HERE.
The community is welcome to hang out with the team and other like-minded people on the QuakeCon Community Discord Server. Here the community can chat, play together and experience peace, love and rockets from the comfort of their home sofa or gaming chair.
Raising money for charity is and will remain a central part of QuakeCon. The donations made it possible to support local, national and international groups. The virtual visitors can donate directly to the organizations including Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC), NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, The Trevor Project and UNICEF directly through the official QuakeCon Twitch stream.
T-shirts to support our furry friends
The annual t-shirts to support our furry friends will also be there again. But this time there are also sweatshirts! Custom Ink will split the profit from the sales between the animal adoption partner Dallas Pets Alive, traditionally supported by QuakeCon, and FOUR PAWS, a worldwide animal welfare organization. This year the designs went to the fiery hells of DOOM Eternal daring to find a perfect template for the sweet “Pugcubus”. On the way back, Bethesda has a short stop on Blackreef, the mysterious island DEATHLOOP, made to get ideas for an exclusive “Catloop” T-shirt. The t-shirts are available here: https://www.customink.com/fundraising/quakecon.
