On August 22, we will be launching Early Access, the next phase of Quake Champions! Below are the patch notes for the Early Access game update, including several fixes, improvements, and features, such as the addition of a new Champion... the DOOM Slayer! As always, please let us know your feedback once the update goes live. We'll be sure to provide server status updates on our launcher, starting with the beginning of maintenance around 5am ET when we'll take the servers down to deploy the update. We anticipate maintenance lasting a few hours and will let you know as soon as the servers are live with the update. The launch of Quake Champions on Steam will also occur on August 22, shortly after the completion of the maintenance window.
Update: Available on Steam now!
