QuakeCon is famous for its stylish modding PCs, and this year's show will focus on Doom Eternal.
Every year thousands of dedicated fans come together to celebrate the demon-slayer that ignited the FPS revolution, complete with insane customized builds. The show is a chance to highlight some of the craziest modded cases in gaming with a set theme (usually hell-on-Earth Doom action or the medieval brutality of Quake). QuakeCon 2019 will be no different.
At IEM Chicago 2019 I was told that some vendors would have some mind-blowing builds at QuakeCon 2019 to sit alongside the player-created mods. The plan is to hype up Doom Eternal's impending release with iconic and memorable setups, which should include lots of blood, carnage, volcanic hellish lighting, and maybe even with Doom Slayer's fancy new battle-axe, claymore, or hook.
The custom PC gurus at Origin PC (who just combined a PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Switch and a PC in the same case) may even bring something special to the event, event coordinator Bryan Ore said.
QuakeCon 2019 kicks off on this Friday, July 26 with a special keynote at 12pm EST.
