You’ll need to do it quickly, though, as there is less than a week before the beta begins.

Although it brings classic, high-speed gameplay, Quake Champions has learned from the age of gaming. It will use the free-to-play model, with a -price game alternative for those who want to unlock all of the ‘champions’ from the get-go. Those characters also have different stats and abilities, meaning they impact gameplay far more than just the aesthetic options of previous Quake .

Id Software also promises solid matchmaking and ranking systems, making it simple to play with people of your skill level, in a game that will be easy to pick up and play, but with many dynamics that make it hard to master.
