It was a busy weekend for everyone, so read on to get the latest on Quake Champions.
New Content Coming in April
Later this month, Quake Champions’ April update will bring a host of new content and features, as well as additional gameplay improvements and refinements. Key new content announced at PAX East include:
- New Champion – Strogg: Half military-grade metal, half decaying flesh, and 100% ready to rage, the primary enemy from both Quake II and Quake 4 is back as Strogg fights to be freed from the Dreamlands and reestablish contact with his ruthless warlord Makron. Players will also be able to take control of Strogg’s sidekick Peeker, an airborne AI drone that shoots explosives. Enemy kills are turned into a nutritional paste called Stroylent that provides 25HP, but players need to act fast – other Stroggs can steal your nourishment
- New Map – Awoken: Players will find themselves navigating a misty labyrinth of tropical ruins in this month’s newest map, Awoken. The vine-entrenched arena will be playable in Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Duel, 2v2, and Instagib. Stay woke to stay alive in this map, Champions
