There will be big-money pro tournaments and live matches throughout the day featuring id Software’s free-to-play, web-based multi-player game Quake Live with the new 250-seat arena that will allow spectators to get up close and personal with the competitors as well as large screens with commentary from the shoutcasters so attendees will be able to view all the action and excitement at all times.
Can’t bring your own computer? Quakecon has you covered there too, as attendees will be able to get hands on with some of the most anticipated future releases at there such as Brink,Fallout:New Vegas, and Hunted: The Demon’s Forge.
