Details for this year’s QuakeCon have emerged by way of press release:
MESQUITE, Texas – April 22, 2008 – As temperatures begin to rise it’s time to start planning the ultimate summer vacation to THE must-attend gaming event of the year – QuakeCon 2008. That’s right! The world’s greatest gaming festival and party will take place July 31 – August 3, 2008 in Dallas, TX at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. As always, this event is FREE to all attendees thanks to the support of the QuakeCon volunteer staff, id Software, the event sponsors and exhibitors.
QuakeCon will once again host North America’s largest BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Computer) LAN party, as well as an expanded exhibit area with nearly 60 companies demonstrating their latest products. Of course, it wouldn’t be QuakeCon without highly competitive tournaments for serious cash and bragging rights, parties, contests, entertainment and announcements.
Registration for the BYOC area will kick off at 9 p.m. ET on April 30, 2008 at www.quakecon.org
