Quake Champions is the up-and-coming new arena shooter unveiled during the Bethesda press conference at last year’s E3. Developed by id Software, in conjunction with Saber Interactive, Quake Champions is a return to the frenetic, fast-paced first-person shooter competition that established Quake as the granddaddy of all eSports games more than 20 years ago.
Fans eager to get their hands on the latest installment in id Software’s long-running series, can head over to the newly launched website and sign up for its closed beta. Even though we don’t have an ETA on the beta yet, a press release issued today stated that it is set to begin “in the coming weeks”. Fans looking for more details about Quake Champions can hit the web site for information about Arenas, weapons, and Champions. Also available on the website is more detail about the game’s first Champion, Nyx, and the first Arena, Blood Covenant. These Champions each wield unique attributes and abilities, enabling players to compete in their own distinctive style.
To celebrate the Closed Beta, Bethesda has released a new gameplay trailer, showing off all the frantic, skill-based fragging and intense speed players can expect from the multiplayer experience. Check it out:
