As a follow-up to the earlier terse press release about new games from id Software being announced at next month's QuakeCon event (story
), we received another, slightly less cryptic announcement specifying that a press conference will be held on Friday August 10, 2:00 PM CDT (3:00 PM EDT), to be followed by a keynote address by John Carmack. Here's the deal, again in AOL-friendly all-caps:
