Bethesda announces Quake Champions in cinematic trailer

Apart from announcing Dishonored 2, Dishonored 2 Collector's Edition and a Skyrim remaster for current-gen consoles and PC, Bethesda Softworks has also announced Quake Champions. The upcoming title follows the same fast arena-styled combat that became popular with the original Quake game in 1996.

The game will run at 120 Hz with unlocked frame-rates, and will also feature a roster of distinctive characters, each with their own unique abilities. Quake Champions will focus on multiplayer in an effort to promote it as an eSport title. Tim Willits, Studio Director of id Software had the following to say:

20 years ago, Quake set new standards for multiplayer competition and pushed the boundaries for graphics and gameplay. It’s important to all of us at id Software that Quake Champions remains true to the Quake legacy, and delivers the speed and gameplay our longtime fans expect, while also pressing forward by introducing new gameplay opportunities with new Champions and abilities.

Bethesda has also stated that Quake Champions will be playable at eSports tournaments; which includes the annual Quakecon as well, following its launch on PC. Availability and pricing details haven't been released as of yet, however, the company plans to share more on that front at this year's Quakecon in Dallas, August 4-7.
