QuakeCon is returning to the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. This year’s event – dubbed QuakeCon: Year of DOOM in honor of DOOM’s 25th anniversary – will run from July 25 through July 28 and feature a host of panels, events, activities and, of course, North America’s largest BYOC area.

Though the BYOC opens its doors on July 25, QuakeCon will officially kick off with a keynote presentation at 11:00am CT on Friday, July 26, which you can watch at Twitch.tv/Bethesda all day, but you can get an overview of some of the events, tournaments and panels below.

(If you are going to be attending QuakeCon, you can get the full rundown of all activities and events in the QuakeCon app, which you can download from the iOS App Store and the Google Play store later this week.)
