Quake Champions is about to exit its Closed Beta phase and officially enter into Early Access on Steam and the Bethesda.net launcher. Starting on August 22, the game will receive a whole host of content, including new maps, features and a special new Champion: the mighty DOOM Slayer from the DOOM series.
All 11 current Champions, including Ranger, Visor, Scalebearer, Nyx, Anarki, Clutch, Sorlag, Galena, Slash, Wolfenstein’s BJ Blazkowicz, and the new DOOM Slayer
All future Champions, including at least six additional Champions expected to release before the end of 2018, and any that follow
An exclusive Early Access skin for Ranger, available only during the Early Access period for Champions Pack players
Three Reliquaries (loot chests containing three in-game items for profile, Champion and weapon customization, including skins, shaders, nameplates and more)
Quake Champions’ free-to-play version will launch at a later date. However, players who previously redeemed a Closed Beta key will be able to continue playing Quake Champions in free-to-play mode, only via Bethesda.net. These players will play on the same servers as Champions Pack owners and have the option of upgrading to the Champions Pack or buying additional Champions at any time. Players new to Quake Champions will need to either buy the Champions Pack or wait until free-to-play mode launches at a later date.
Quake Champions’ newest playable Champion, DOOM Slayer, comes straight from the depths of hell to the Arenas, wielding his pounding fists and an unceasing thirst for blood. Fans of DOOM can run amok using DOOM Slayer’s active ability, Berserk – smashing enemies into bloody piles of gibs with his bare hands. DOOM Slayer’s passive ability will also be familiar to DOOM fans; reach new heights with Double Jump, which allows the DOOM Slayer to jump a second time while in mid-air.
Two New Maps: Church of Azathoth and Tempest Shrine
Rune Challenges: Players will be reward for completing new Rune Challenges found in Backpacks
Lore System: Players will find Lore Items hidden throughout Arenas in vases. By collecting all 10 Lore Items for a specific Champion, they will unlock that Champion’s high-end Lore Skin.
Improved New Player Onboarding: New features to help get fresh fraggers up to speed include a movement tutorial, shooting gallery and the ability to choose a skill level
New Customization Options: New options include new Champion skin sets and weapon shaders

John Carmack getting BAFTA’s highest honour

Who was the player who changed your opinion of them after you interacted with them/interviewed?
Almost every player has changed my opinion of them following the interview, as I can see the emphasis they place on certain ideas and gain an understanding of their reasoning and perspective. Being able to empathise with the player is an important part of my approach.
I think the two most startling examples would be Cooller and Flame. Interviewing Cooller allowed me to unlock the poetic soul of Russian culture. I realised that sometimes his words were off how someone would express something in English, but that they were often misinterpreted, as a result, and that he in fact often thought in a very philosophical and subtle manner.
change will allow us to have greater control over the game environmentA more free system for maps, or mods perhaps? Can't read anything from this,
more tightly integrate the game with the online components going forwardAt best, a gloriously anticipated automated tournament system. Or, more likely, some way to get more statistics from tournaments and an interface/page to follow their progress.
