QuakeCon 2014 in July

The Bethesda Blog announces QuakeCon 2014 will be in July this year, the only other month when the Dallas area is as hot as it is in August, when the id Software-centric LAN party/game convention normally takes place. Here's word:
Returning for its 19th year, North America’s largest BYOC LAN party returns to the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, TX — taking place Thursday, July 17th – Sunday, July 20th.

For regular QuakeCon attendees, you’ll immediately notice that we’ve moved the event forward by a couple weeks. As such, we’re already making this year’s room reservations at the Anatole available. Figure out your plans with friends on the QuakeCon forums and then dial 1-800-Hiltons (or visit this link) to take advantage of the $159/night special rate. Just be sure to reference QuakeCon 2014!

Moving the event ahead by a month, we’ll also be sharing updates on the event earlier than ever. Expect the first updates on registration in the coming month.

Each day of QuakeCon is packed with game presentations, contests, entertainment, announcements, panel discussions, parties and more. Come check it out for free!
