In brief: QuakeCon 2023 has officially come and gone, but there's still time to cash in on Steam's QuakeCon sale. Through August 16, you can pick up the Doom franchise bundle for 75 percent off, bringing the out-the-door cost down to just $28.88. The haul includes Doom (1993), Doom II: Hell on Earth, Doom 64, Doom 3, Doom (2016), and Doom Eternal (Deluxe Edition).
Titles can be purchased individually but you'll get the best discount via bundling (assuming you don't already own some of the games). The biggest hitter here is Doom Eternal, which accounts for nearly 55 percent of the bundle's total value. If you already have it, save yourself some coin and go a la carte.
It wouldn't be a QuakeCon sale if it didn't include games from the namesake. The Quake collection comes with the original Quake, Quake II, Quake III Arena, Quake 4, Quake Live, and Quake Champions. It is priced at $19.60, which represents a 67 percent discount off the normal rate.
Doom and Quake are just a few of the many Bethesda games discounted for the next couple of days. Several entries in the Fallout franchise are currently marked down by 75 percent including Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and Fallout 76.
Similarly, you can pick up The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for 75 percent off apiece. The Elder Scrolls Online is down to $5.99 after a 70 percent markdown, and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (Game of the Year Edition) can be yours for the same price after an instant 60 percent discount.
The biggest news out of QuakeCon 2023 was without a doubt the remaster of Quake II. Available now as a free patch for existing Quake II owners, the update delivers enhanced graphics and new content as well as tweaks to the user interface and gameplay.
The sale ends on August 16 so if you see something you want, now would be the time to scoop it up.
