At last, the gods of gaming news are smiling down upon us once more. The annual QuakeCon event has been going down in Texas, the one stop shop for all things awesome in the world of first-person shooters. The first of these nuggets, and perhaps the most important, is a brand spanking new in-game trailer for PC exclusive FPS Quake Champions. Just in case you had any doubts as to whether this would be a proper Quake game, rest assured, it most certainly is.
Quake Champions looks like arena shooting at its finest, with weapon pickups, power-ups, twitchy gameplay, vertical maps, and all sorts of giblety goodness. All this with support for 120Hz as well.
On first impressions it could well be the return of the king. My one remaining worry is the champions themselves though, each of which offer unique skills which could take away from the level playing field we came to love in Quake 3: Arena.
Still just a vague 2017 launch for this one, bit considering how publisher Bethesda has already handled modern sequels for DOOM and Wolfenstein, you’d do well to be excited for this one.
