Doom Eternal’s New Battlemode Multiplayer Experience to be Showcased at QuakeCon 2019
This year’s QuakeCon has been dubbed “The Year of Doom,” which makes sense as 2019 marks the franchise’s 25th anniversary and we’re getting the all-new Doom Eternal this year. Given the theme, the 2019 QuakeCon Keynote will largely focus on Doom Eternal, with Bethesda promising a first in-depth look at the game’s new 2v1 slayers vs. demons multiplayer experience, Battlemode. The Keynote will be streamed live Friday, July 26 at 11am CT.
