Bethesda is bringing back fast-paced, skillful matches with Quake Champions, boasting the original series spirit: fast, bloody, and incredibly competitive. Fans will be glad to hear that the title’s entering a closed beta state, and inscriptions are now open at the official website.
In an era dominated by MOBA games, this new Quake installment doesn’t stay behind and includes a roster of champions, each with its own set of skills and special traits. Like Nyx, the Fathom Agent, who seems to rely on agile moves, or Scalebearer, the Galactic Warlord with a huge armor.
The Ultimate Multiplayer
Even if their characteristics come with different variants, the core FPS mechanics stay tuned with the classic’s, so you better land that mid-air rocket while avoiding the enemy’s rail guns. As we can see on the video, Bethesda appeals to Quake’s golden eSport era, bringing a PC exclusive at launch that will focus entirely on a precise and polished gameplay.
The arena calls and their revamped looks shine under the gory gameplay when rocket-jumping through the Blood Covenant or the Ruins of Sarnath. Even if few details are available, expect Quake Champions to release champion and arena spotlight videos soon. Meanwhile, sign-up to the closed beta and cross your fingers because a Quake game that has been tested by pro-players is surely worth a go.
