The latest instalment in the fast paced paced multiplayer arena shooter, Quake has finally gone free to play after its lengthy but important beta and paid access stages. Players can download the game right now via the Bethesda.net Launcher or on Steam.

However, this does not mean that Quake Champions has left the early access stage as the game will still undergo some changes and balancing reworks, but new players will be treated to the same new content, improvements and events that everyone else will. In fact, Quake Champions has recently just gotten a major new content update, with a new champion called Death Knight as well as certain new bot matches.


“Our free-to-play test at E3 saw more than a million players test their skill with Quake Champions, and the feedback we received from our community has helped us get to this point — launching our free version for everyone,” said Tim Willits, Studio Director, id Software. “Quake Champions brings all of the intense gameplay and skill-based action that millions of fans have loved for decades, along with exciting new additions and twists, and provides it to anyone, all for free. And what better place to launch Quake Champions for free than at QuakeCon, a gathering of thousands of our most diehard fans, and with a major esports tournament with the best FPS players in the world.”

The free to play version of the game comes with two champions, Ranger and Scalebearer, with additional Champions available for purchase both monetarily and in-game. The new version also includes an all new soundtrack as well as custom and death match bot games. Lastly, be sure to check out the trailer above to see the roadmap in store for players.

I am a guy who loves anything with a powerful storyline, whether it be a game, book or movie, it doesn't matter. Just so long as it hooks me in and keeps my imagination captive till the last word/scene! Also, I am huge Silent Hill fan, so I love all things Silent Hill... and anything horror. Huge horror fanatic!
