AGDQ 2024 Schedule Unveiled

The AGDQ Schedule for Next Year Has Been Revealed

The Games Done Quick (GDQ) organization has unveiled the schedule for Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) 2024, an exciting charity speedrunning marathon returning as an in-person event. AGDQ 2024 is set to take place from January 14 to January 21, offering a thrilling lineup of over 100 different speed runs that span multiple eras, from NES classics to recent releases like The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom.

This year’s AGDQ will make a triumphant return to the in-person format, streaming live from the Wyndham Grand in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It marks the first in-person Awesome Games Done Quick since the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted events worldwide.
