When it comes to FPS games, there are a handful that are considered classics, like Wolfenstein, Doom, and Quake. So far we have seen new versions of Wolfenstein and Doom developed, and last month there were hints that a new version of Quake could be in the works as well, and sure enough there was.
Bethesda has officially announced their latest title Quake Champions which was led by Tim Willits of id Software, whom for those unfamiliar was the co-designer of the original Quake. According to Bethesda, Quake Champions has been designed for the eSports arena, but we guess we’ll have to wait to try it out to see if it will truly be a competitive game.
According to Bethesda’s press release, “Quake Champions continues id Software’s tradition of pushing the boundaries of modern technology and will deliver stunning graphics running at 120hz with unlocked frame rates. The game will make it easy for new players to learn while also delivering the challenge and competition 20-year Quake veterans expect.”
Willits adds, “It’s important to all of us at id Software that Quake Champions remains true to the Quake legacy, and delivers the speed and gameplay our long-time fans expect, while also pressing forward by introducing innovative gameplay opportunities with new Champions and abilities.” More details about the game will be shared at QuakeCon in August, but in the meantime you can check out its reveal trailer in the video above.
