It's dawn of the final day. QuakeCon 2018 begins tomorrow, and we learn the official schedule a bit early.

Taking place August 9-12, QuakeCon is an annual convention taking place in Gaylord, Texas, hosted by developer and publisher Bethesda Softworks. Several panels and tournaments are scheduled for the event, many of which are viewable through Twitch. We'll also get a peek at some upcoming games.

Starting Thursday, August 9, the event launches with The Elder Scrolls: Legends Masters Series qualifiers. The competitive card game will transition into Friday, where the top 16 players will compete for a $50,000 prize. Those who can't manage to see the event live can watch it go down on the official Elder Scrolls: Legends Twitch channel.

After that is the Quake Champions tournament, starting Friday and concluding on Sunday. Everyone is competing for a $175,000 prize pool. Two-man teams will work their way up the bracket, with one lucky and skillful pair taking the championship and an additional $25,000 prize. The event will be live on the Quake Twitch channel.

Bethesda saves Saturday, 11:00 AM central time for a Fallout 76 panel, where the company will reveal new information regarding the character and perk system. After that will be a Q&A session with important figures in the game's development. Both of these will be livestreamed on the Bethesda Twitch channel.

There will also be a number of community hosted panels, ranging from the Board Game Learn and Plays to an actual blood drive. A full list of the event's taking place can be found at the Fan Guru page dedicated to it.
