I think a lot of people were anticipating that Quake Champions would eventually go totally free-to-play. Today, Bethesda announced during the 23rd annual QuakeCon that the game would indeed become fully free to download.
With the announcement also see more of the newly announced Champion, Death Knight. The new character became live with an earlier patch on August 2.
The Quake Champions Pack is also currently on sale for 34 percent off. Head to the Quake Champions Steam page for more information. The game is also available with the Bethesda.net launcher.
