Over the years we’ve seen quite a few FPS games released, but it has been a while since we’ve seen a Quake title. For those who aren’t familiar with the Quake franchise, along with DOOM and Wolfenstein, it is one of the classic games from back in the day that more or less helped kick off the FPS genre.

This is why many gamers are undoubtedly excited to check out Quake Champions. We know that some of you guys might have your reservations about the game, but the good news is that Bethesda will be hosting an open beta this coming weekend. This means that anyone who downloads the Bethesda Launcher will be able to take part in it and you won’t need to pre-order the game to participate.

The open beta will run from the 12th of May until the 21st of May which should give gamers more than enough time to try it out and decide if they want to get their hands on it. However given that this is a beta, there could still be bugs that have yet to be ironed out and that some features could change ahead of the release, so what you see might not necessarily be the final version of the game.

Quake Champions will actually be a free-to-play title. However there is a limitation and that is there will only be one character available for use, and given that the different characters have different skills and abilities, it could be limiting for some gamers. Players who want to unlock everything will have to pay a one-time fee, but other than that the game is pretty much free.
