QuakeCon is Coming!

We have big plans for ESO at the show this year. Find out how you can get in on the fun!

Has it been a whole year already? It’s almost time for QuakeCon again (July 17th-20th), and we’ve got some great stuff planned for ESO this year. Even if you can’t make it all the way out to Dallas to attend the convention, there’s plenty for you to see. We’re even holding some tournaments with great prizes—find out how to participate below!


Panel: The Future of ESO

The ESO devs will talk about where the game is headed and answer your questions on the main stage. Each developer (listed below) will speak about a specific aspect of ESO and what’s in store, followed by a live Q&A. Also, the first 3,000 attendees will receive a free copy of The Elder Scrolls Online! Submit your questions to us on the official ESO forums and Twitter ahead of time, and you may see us answer it live at QuakeCon! (Please use the #ESO and #QuakeCon hashtags on Twitter.)
