Bethesda Softworks Reveals Several Events For QuakeCon 2020

This morning, Bethesda Softworks revealed more details of the events taking place during QuakeCon 2020 as it goes online.  The event will take place from August 7th-9th completely online as they've rebranded it QuakeCon At Home. The event is scheduled to have three days of celebrity influencer streams, live concerts, charity fundraising, developer panels, and more to be revealed. We have the list of events so far below, along with the list of free things you can do during the event, all of which will be broadcast on Twitch. QuakeCon At Home will also have new exclusive "Dogvahkiin" and "Catodemon" t-shirts for sale, which you can see below, with 100% of the profits going to Dallas Pets Alive and FOUR PAWS. Twitch viewers will be able to join us in donating to organizations live during the stream, including Direct Relief, UNICEF, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and The Trevor Project.
