New Quake Champions Trailer Introduces Druggie Roller Queen Slash

Bethesda Softworks and id Software have shared a new trailer for Quake Champions.

Featured above, the new trailer introduces the character Slash, who is described as pretty much a druggie that is plagued by visions and music that torment her mind. She’s not quite the Queen of Blades, however, she’s also known as the Lady of Blades.

Here’s a brief synopsis for Slash, via Bethesda:

Skating was always an obsession for Slash. In her head she could hear a melody, one that compelled her to twirl and dance and skate. She heard the music in her dreams more and more, until it just never stopped. It was a constant, unending song and so she kept skating.

The music got to her, and she began to see things. Impossible things. She was seeing entire separate realities. She turned to drugs to try to quell the music and the visions, starting with clozapine and moving onto heroine when nothing got better.

In this haze of music and drugs, she met a boy who could see the strange, warped plane of existence she saw. Slash wasn’t alone with the music in her head anymore. She stuck by the boy’s side and as they lost themselves in more and more drug trips, the other world became real, drawing them in until they both found themselves trapped in eternal battle in the Dreamlands with a host of other Champions from the waking realm.

In case you missed it, previous character trailers introduced AnarkiScalebearer, and Nyx. The game’s closed beta is set to launch on April 6th, with the initial group of accepted testers. Bethesda is planning on adding more users as the beta continues. You can sign up for the beta here.

Quake Champions is currently in development for PC and has a 2017 release window.
