QuakeCon 2017 Brings the Country's Biggest LAN Party to Dallas in August
Bethesda has announced the location and dates for QuakeCon 2017.
If you've been around PC gaming for any time at all, you've probably wanted to go to QuakeCon at least once. This will be the 22nd installment of the yearly convention that features the biggest LAN party in north America. The 2017 show will have over 2,000 BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) seats available.
This year's QuakeCon will be held at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Dallas, Texas from Thursday, August 24 through Sunday, August 27. It is open to the public, and there is no admission fee. Bethesda says in a press release,
"This year's event will offer diverse activities for all, including those who choose not to bring their own computer. Attendees are first to see sneak peeks of Bethesda's upcoming titles and announcements while also attending a wide array of presentations, tournaments, workshops and exhibits from leading tech companies showcasing the newest gaming accessories and hardware."
Registration has not yet begun for the show, but you can make your hotel reservation at the Gaylord Resort by calling 877-491-5138 or by visiting this website. The room rate is $185 a night when you mention QuakeCon.

Ahh LAN parties. They were much fun to attend in the 90s. But now kids today have their high speed tubes and whatnot, no more gathering at a friends place for local multiplayer.
