This is an excellent time for gamers, as only a day after the announcement of the Steam Deck, we now know that QuakeCon At Home is coming back. The online event will last from August 19th to the 21st. It will involve live streams, giveaways, charity donations, and tournaments. There will also be updates on future games and appearances from developers. This news comes to us straight from the Bethesda site.
QuakeCon At Home will have a lot of content from many different people
Bethesda is going to be bringing a lot of people from around the world to participate in the event. They will include people from different Bethesda teams, but there will also be influencers present, though the company has not stated who. The influencers will most likely include popular streamers on Twitch.
This event will also mark the reunion of the official QuakeCon Twitch Team. They will be playing games with the community. An added bonus for joining the event is the chance of being featured on the QuakeCon Twitch Team page.
This event will be raising money for charity
One core part of QuakeCon At Home is its focus on charity. Bethesda partnered with certain charities to donate to. Over the years, QuakeCon has donated money to local and international charities, and that doesn’t change for 2021. This year, money will be donated to Asian American Advanced Justice (AAAJ), UNICEF, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and The Trevor Project. Those are just the charities on the list, so there may definitely be more.
If you want to donate to charity and score cool sweatshirts, then that’s also an option. You will be able to buy the adorable “Pugcubus” sweatshirt during the event. Bethesda partnered with Custom Ink for this initiative. The money that Custom Ink gets from shirt sales will be split between Dallas Pets Alive and FOUR PAWS.
