With the coronavirus creating uncertainty about whether or not people would be able to attend the convention, and with it making planning one a big challenge, Bethesda said it was looking at other ways to "celebrate the spirit of QuakeCon." Today it revealed what shape it's taking.
The specifics of the online convention will be announced later, but you can expect livestreams, tournaments, charity fundraising and, to keep you hooked, some "fun secrets."
Unfortunately, the big bring-your-own-PC LAN party, one of the convention's highlights, isn't something that can really be replicated online, but maybe there will be some special online multiplayer events that we'll be able to dive into instead.
QuakeCon at Home is taking place on August 7-9.
