During that time, you can expect livestreams featuring updates on existing and upcoming games, tournaments, charity fundraising, puppies (daw!), giveaways, and more.

The team behind the event is also bringing back the Virtual BYOC via Twitch Teams to help bring the QuakeCon community together through games once again.

Here are some QuakeCon 2021 highlights:

  • Global Stream – QuakeCon will officially kick off Thursday, August 19 at 2pm ET. The multi-day event will include special influencer streams, Bethesda’s own Community teams from across the world, developer appearances, and game updates – all streaming in support of charitable causes. The QuakeCon Staff will also be producing a slate of exclusive content for the community. Stay tuned for more info, including the full schedule, in the coming weeks.
  • Official QuakeCon Twitch Team – Playing and sharing games with friends in the BYOC is the core of QuakeCon, and this year the global QuakeCon community will once again unite and connect through the official QuakeCon Twitch Team. The Team will celebrate QuakeCon, play and share games, and help raise money for the QuakeCon-supported charities. Some players will be featured on the QuakeCon Twitch Team page. If you would like to be included, you can sign up here.
  • QuakeCon Discord – The community can join us in the QuakeCon Community Discord server. Make new friends, play new games, and experience Peace Love and Rockets from the comfort of the couch or gaming station.
  • Charity Initiatives – Raising money for charities continues to be a key component of QuakeCon. The QuakeCon family has made a huge impact on local, national, and international groups, and we’re excited to keep things rolling this year! Our virtual QuakeCon attendees will be able to donate to organizations directly from the official QuakeCon Twitch stream, including Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC), NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, The Trevor Project, and UNICEF.

The annual animal charity tee-shirts are also back, and this time, there are sweatshirts. Custom Ink will split all profits from the sale of these shirts between QuakeCon’s long-time Dallas-based animal adoption partner, Dallas Pets Alive, and FOUR PAWS, a global animal welfare organization.
