Event Schedule

The big news -- for the first time ever the exhibit hall will be open all day from Friday through Sunday, making for a full weekend of QuakeCon fun. The keynote address returns in 2018, featuring the latest scoops on all of Bethesda Softworks’ games, along with a variety of panels offering insight into games and the community.

And, finally, the best Quake Champions players in the world will once again descend on Dallas to face-off live on-stage, this time in the QuakeCon Open, with $200,000 on the line.

Ticketing and Registration

Your QuakeCon team is working to create a better, smoother process for registration and to get it just right, they’ll need a little more time. We will announce further details on registration availability soon.

In the meantime, a reminder that while general admittance remains free, attendees wishing to participate in the QuakeCon 2018 BYOC must pre-purchase a package (options listed below) to guarantee a spot. While this year’s BYOC is twice as large as last year, ‘BYOC Select-a-Seat’ packages are still limited and all seats will be accounted for prior to the show, we want to remind everyone that there will not be seats available on-site for walk-ins.

New this year – SWAG! During package registration, fans will have the chance to add a premium, limited edition swag bag full of exclusive items to their ticket selection. Pre-orders will be taken for a limited time for $150. Each package includes a premium roll-over backpack, a set of three exclusive pins, a QuakeCon stainless steel water bottle, a QuakeCon air freshener, an oversized QuakeCon mousepad, a QuakeCon luggage tag, and a 36-inch inflatable Rocket Launcher from Quake Champions. In addition, all BYOC tickets include the Official 2018 QuakeCon Pin
