Bethesda have revealed a host of new bits and pieces for Quake Champions, which is currently in closed beta.
First off, Wolfenstein protagonist BJ Blazkowicz is a new Champion. He’s entering the arena alongside three new maps, a Tribolt weapon, and “a host of new and improved features.” Not only that, but the closed beta is going to continue and will be kept live 24/7; you can sign up to get a beta key now over here, although I don’t know whether that key will give you immediate access to the game. If the closed beta is indeed now live all day every day, then I suppose it should!
You can check out some of this in the new trailer below. Quake Champions is due for full release sometime later this year – presumably around or after QuakeCon, which starts on 24 August, as that’s when the World Championships are being held.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
