If you grew up playing games like Quake, you might have heard the news that Bethesda will be launching a new Quake game in the form of Quake Champions. The game has undergone closed beta testing and if you are interested in taking part in it, you’ll be pleased to learn that Bethesda is now opening it up to pretty much everyone.
In the announcement on Bethesda’s website, the company notes that the game is still in Closed Beta status, but apparently anyone who signs up to take part in the beta will be given a key, so it seems that you’ll be able to take part anyway, which we guess is good news. “If you haven’t been able to join the Closed Beta yet, don’t worry – more people are continuously being let in, so sign up now and you’ll immediately receive your beta key.”
In addition to the beta, Bethesda also announced a new character addition to the game in the form of BJ Blazkowicz, who for those unfamiliar is the protagonist in the Wolfenstein franchise, which by the way a new title was also announced today at E3. The E3 update will also add three new maps to the game, a new Tri-bolt weapon, and a bunch of other features.
Quake Champions will be a free-to-play title where players will be given access to only one character, and if they want to unlock the rest they’ll just need to pay a one-time fee, but other than that there will be no restrictions in the game. If you’d like to participate in the beta, head on over to Bethesda’s website and sign up for a key.
