Thousands of gamers flock to QuakeCon each year to play their favorite games on a world class network and of course to listen to the man behind the game that changed how we look at FPS games today – John Carmack! The event will take place from August 1-4 at its signature venue The Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas. Reservations can be made at the hotel by calling 1-800-Hiltons or 1-800-445-8667 or by going online to the hotel’s reservation page.

QuakeCon remains the largest and most seasoned group of volunteers who help organize the event each year in North America. Not only are id software’s bigwigs present at the event, but it’s also known for its Quake tournament with most of the pro players in attendance. Other id game like RTCW are also played extensively apart from several other smaller interactive events at the venue.
