Bethesda Softworks has opened the closed beta sign-ups for Quake Champions.

The first-person shooter enables up to five-versus-five arena battles, and is in development for PC by id Software. Featured above, you can view a new trailer showcasing the upcoming closed beta.

Bethesda also announced that fans attending this year’s PAX East will be able to play the game for the first time in public, as well as sign up for the closed beta.

    it sounds like like a MOBA than QUAKE tbh

    5 vs 5 teams, class based gameplay, yeah I’m not sure we need another one like that

    I’d just like to play quake instead

    just let us have our own dedicated servers and the option to turn off skills and we can have the best of both worlds. And please don’t fuck over modders

    Is it just me or did anyone else notice something similar to aim assist going on in that trailer? Seems shots that were a bit off the mark were too precise.

    Can’t be sure without a crosshair.

    I disliked all the so called hero shooters I tried so far but this could be different.I’ll try the beta at least.

  • luggage lad

    looked like footage of contorller use, and consoles always have abit of aim assist in their FPS

  • RichardGristle

    Na, just a less obnoxious version of Overbotch.

    I mean, ID-Bethesda kinda did that already with Doom 4. As good as that game is the lack of modding tools is a goddamned shame. And no, SnapMap doesn’t fucking count.

    Though on that note, a SnapMap feature for this game could at least be fun. Kinda like Halo’s Forge Mode, going online in community made maps can be equal parts awful and amazing depending on the quality.

    This is a PC game though.
