Speaking of Doom 3, the man behind id Software's latest shooter, lead programmer John Carmack, will deliver the keynote address at the event. Also in attendance will be Jon Farhat, the visual effects supervisor of the Doom movie, which is due later this year and stars the Rock.

Over 6,000 attendees are expected at QuakeCon 2005, which runs from August 11 to 14 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas. For more details, visit the official QuakeCon 2005 Web site.
