QuakeCon 2019 is throwing a Doom party and it’s going to be big. Bethesda is expected to pull out all the stops to make sure the event will be shotgun-heavy. After all, the widely-popular first-person shooter is celebrating 25 years of demon-slaying.

The year of Doom will certainly be a memorable one as fans converge for this annual gaming tournament.

According to Bethesda, this year’s QuakeCon 2019 will feature new Doom-themed activities, exclusives and developer panels.

The event will also include hands-on demonstrations, the latest information on Doom Eternal, and plus more surprises. The US-based developer is unwilling to spill the beans on other stuff it has in store for players.

As expected, the Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BOC) LAN Party will be the main attraction of the video geek fest. Participants to the event might be a little bit surprised with this year’s registration though.

Previously, you could pick a seat upon registration. With the new set up, seat selection will be made at an unannounced date, reported PC Gamer.

Bethesda, however, is anticipated to make up for this minor inconvenience. It has promised to give fans everything they expect from QuakeCon 2019. These include hands-on trials of the company’s latest games. Some are asking if this year’s event will finally see the appearance of Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Anything is possible.

QuakeCon is scheduled to run from the July 25 to 28 and will be held in Dallas, Texas. Registration for participants will start on April 11, 10 AM.

General admission to the Doom-inspired event will be free. Once registered, players will have access to the BYOC, the QuakeCon 2019 Done Quick Pass and entry to all Main Stage activities.

For those who are interested to join the BYOC party, an entry will cost $75. On the other hand, admission to all panel displays and other events is priced at $125.

Meanwhile, combo tickets sell at $200, while VIP entry costs $400. Players, however, will just have to wait for Bethesda’s announcement on the seating arrangement, according to GameSpot.

During last year’s QuakeCon, Bethesda gave fans the latest updates Doom Eternal, Fallout 76 and Quake Champions. But for this year, Doom is taking the spotlight.

It is still unclear though if the developer will exclusively focus on the hit FPS or highlight its other franchises. The company recently revealed that Doom Eternal will be among the playable at the unveiling of Google Stadia.

There are speculations that a Quake reboot will be unveiled at QuakeCon 2019. Rumors are also circulating that a Machine Games reboot is also in the works, reported Game Revolution.
