Bethesda kicked off their E3 Showcase by announcing Quake Champions. Following on from successfully revitalising classic first-person shooter franchises Wolfenstein and Doom, Champions look set to try and do the same job for the Quake series.
Quake Champions will be a competitive, multiplayer, arena-based FPS that is being designed for veterans and newcomers alike. The game will also support competitive tournaments and leagues.
According to id Software studio director Tim Willits, Champions will be “fast”, have amazing graphics, and run at 120Hz with unlocked framerates.
The game centres around “champions” – unique characters with their own weapons, skills and abilities.
No release window was given for Quake Champions, but Willits promised that we would be getting more information on the game at QuakeCon later this year.
