Full QuakeCon 2021 Event Schedule Revealed, A Digital Event All Can Attend

by Liana Ruppert on Aug 12, 2021 at 10:50 AM

As a result of COVID-19, QuakeCon 2021 will be another all-digital event this year, and we've got the full schedule to see what's in store for the road ahead. While we do miss in-person events, the good news is that the live-streamed event is purely focused on the digital space, which means no one has to miss out on certain aspects of what QuakeCon has to offer. That includes the puppies. Yes, we said puppies. 

QuakeCon will kick off at 2 p.m. Eastern on August 19 and following the Welcome Message opening stream, there will be a plethora of "fan-focused" panels for Bethesda and id fans to enjoy. We'll learn more about what is in store for the future while also reflecting back on some iconic game anniversaries. This is Todd Howard's moment to shine and talk about Skyrim some more, and honestly? We love to see it. 

For those interested, here is what the full schedule looks like for next week's festivities:
