New Champion – The Doom guy and six others 

Yes, you heard that right. The Doom guy, the badass character from another franchise by Bethesda, is in Quake Champions.

He will use a double-barrelled shotgun in the game, and the active ability is called Beserk in which he smashes enemies with his bare hands, just like the glory kills in DOOM 2016.

Six additional champions are expected to release before early 2019.

Other Features

Custom Games:- The F2P version will not feature this. Players will be allowed to create and invite others into a game, and then set specific win conditions for every map and mode.

Sacrifice:- It is a new game mode, which is very much team-based. The match will be between 4 players on each team.


In conclusion, the game will be absolutely breathtaking. The closed beta was amazing for me, even though the latency for Indian players was around 200ms. The Champions Pack seems worth it. This might be the next big eSports game!
