E3 2017: Quake Champions Will Have A Million Dollar Competition, Beta Is Live Again


Today during Bethesda’s E3 press conference, the company presented Quake Champions in a new, yet familiar light. It was painted as a major esports title, and it’s being backed up with a sponsored competition on August 26 during QuakeCon, which will have a $1 million prize. The event is called the Quake World Championships and anyone can participate, though more details will come.

As a result, Bethesda announced that Quake Champions is back in open beta and will run indefinitely. Players can signup on its official website right now. As a nod to Wolfenstein and the newly announced The New Colossus, BJ Blazkowicz is a playable character in Quake Champions and he’ll have his own attributes and voice lines. This includes the ability to dual-wield any weapon. Additionally, the game is adding three new maps, including two for Duel, and improved matchmaking, a weapon called the Tribolt, Custom Game support, Spectator mode, and more.
