Quake Champions marks the return of the classic franchise created by id Sofware and mixes the best of the first Quake with the groundbreaking multiplayer mayhem of Quake III Arena. Faster than ever, the game will also introduce a major new feature to the franchise – Champions – a roster of fierce warriors, each with unique attributes and abilities, which enable players to compete in their own distinctive style.
Quake Champions will launch as a free-to-play game, not the first time that it has happened in the Quake series – Quake Live came first but some time later relaunched as buy-to-play -, but while free players have access to the full maps and game modes, they are limited to one Champion, the Ranger.
Quake Champions continues id Software’s tradition of pushing the boundaries of modern technology and will deliver stunning graphics running at 120hz with unlocked frame rates. The game will make it easy for new players to learn while also delivering the challenge and competition 20-year Quake veterans expect. Quake Champions is designed and built for eSports, integrating competitive features for professional and amateur levels of play. The game will be supported at tournaments and in leagues around the globe, including QuakeCon.
