Zenimax is rolling out their big event today called QuakeCon. The annual convention will allow gamers to witness new announcements and gameplay from popular titles under the Zenimax corporate umbrella in real-time, thanks to live-streaming taking place right now of QuakeCon 2014.
Polygon did a short article on the event and noted that the big news for the day will be a reveal for the tentative Doom 4. For now, we know absolutely nothing about the game except for what was showcased during a cinematic sequence for the game just before E3. It was noted that, sadly, the footage was not in-engine from the id Tech 5 but was CG put together by a contracted studio.
The reveal of Doom 4 is supposed to take place today at 5pm CST or 7pm EST. Now Bethesda made it known that only people in attendance at QuakeCon will get their first look at the game and that the footage won't be made available to the public. I'm pretty sure someone, somewhere will find a way to get the information out to the public, and as soon as it happens we'll have up the info for you.
In addition to Doom and other LAN-party events taking place, Zenimax will also have other live-streamed events taking place throughout the day as well, including panels and gameplay from titles such as Elder Scrolls Online. You can check out that second stream below.
Bethesda and id Software are known the world around for providing gamers with high-quality titles and hosting historically beloved franchises. One of the company's biggest properties is The Elder Scrolls, which has managed to sell quite a bit for each entry in the series. The two latest games have also garnered quite a bit of attention with Elder Scrolls Online and Skyrim. The former has had its troubles, but it appears to have maintained a dedicated audience for the time being.
As for id Software, the company is recognized for changing the entire industry with the revolutionary first-person shooters Wolfenstein 3D and Doom. The former of the series has had a rough time of it until the latest release, Wolfenstein: The New Order. The latter, Doom, has maintained a waning presence in the gaming industry but things might change around with Doom 4. Gamers are definitely excited to see what comes out of it.
We'll have more details when they become available.
