The fast, skill-based arena-style competition that turned the original Quake games into multiplayer legends is making a triumphant return with Quake Champions. Running at an impressive 120hz with unlocked framerates, id Software’s new multiplayer shooter is getting ready to take PC gaming by storm once more.

I play a lot of Xonotic which has a lot of Quake maps on it. Never got a chance to play any of the Quakes but all the dudes on Xonotic talk about like it's the game of all games so I'll have to check this out.

Quake 3 Arena was the best arena multiplayer experience I've ever had. Tons of hours spent on it back in the day, really enjoyed it. This was the time before loadout and classes. It was all about skill and map control. 

Glad to see they are taking a similar approach on this one, but cautious about the whole "hero skills" thing they have announced.

 

Still wish to see a Quake reboot similar to the Doom one. Quake 1 was an awesome experience.

Looks too much like Doom and I'm bummed that there is no single player (I don't have the patience for multiplayer games). In my opinion, Quake > Doom.

Quake always bored me.

should've rebooted Unreal Tournament, instead.

 

UT is the definitive arena/competitive shooter.

Speaking of UT, it's been awhile since I last checked up on the progress of UT4. 

I've honestly never tried Quake before, but if it's free then why the hell not?

Wish there was a single player campaign like the first Quake, with Lovecraftian and dark fantasy elements. The maps look pretty rad though. I'm still pretty skeptical with the hero stuff.

The game will have a vanilla mode - no heroes, just classic arena shooter.

Heh I've always had the completely opposite opinion. I never cared for Unreal. Played it a few times, didn't like how it felt, went back to Quake.

I wish they would have made a true Quake II. A lovecraftian setting is too overlooked and unique as hell. A Quake like DOOM 2016 with a creepy atomsphere and rocket jumping would be awesome, though I would like it if they don't use arenas as much, keep them since they are fun but make maps that are more like the originals.

This can work if they include dedicated servers and mod support. Otherwise I don't see myself going anywhere near it. Especially since it's going to be free to play. It will attract a lot of cheaters, like every f2p shooter, and you need a way to deal with them in a fast and efficient way that only a dedicated server can provide.

Gotta have LAN, though.

LAN support and mods, then I could care less what they do with the servers.(But you're right about the severs).  

 

I hate how they handled modding for DOOM. Everything has to come from the developer. Every map has to be snapped together with pre-made pieces... which actually is innovative for consoles but crippling for PC. If they force that pre-made cookie cutter crap with Quake Champions on PC the scene is going to be incredibly stale very quickly. We need a new equivalent for the Q3Radiant editor. The community needs to be free to lead itself again when it comes to level design. 

 

I f*cking hope it happens.

Well it's a PC exclusive, so there's some hope.

I actually missed that bit. I'm so used to everything making a release across the board I just assumed. That is good news.

I'm gonna go ahead and double post. I stumbled on some early game play footage. It's been recorded over someones shoulder as they are playing and it's super early stuff but it gives a decent impression of team deathmatch. I think it might be from PAX East?

 

 

Apparently loot boxes will be a thing.

Looks like Quake alright. It also seems to feel like Quake. There's a lot to be excited about.

Interesting. One thing is sure, nobody does weapons, especially the rocket launcher and shotgun, as well as id. At least they used to; I've not played the latest Doom so can't say.

 

Also nobody does movement controls as well as id and their engine. Rage still has the best shooter controls for a console controller, as well as for kbm. And no game comes close to combining both control schemes together.

 

So I'm still kinda bummed that we don't get to see much of id engines anymore. And, I'm even more bummed we don't get a single player Quake. Yea yea yea, everyone kept saying Quake is for MP only but screw that. Both Quake and Quake 2 were great single player games in their own right.

 

Q2 in particular had a lot of features and design elements that were praised in HL and everyone forgot Q2 did them earlier, sometimes better. Great games, perfect soundtracks too. The late 90's was such a cool time for shooters.

It would be cool to see something that was written in the vein of the original Quake, but I'd honestly just be happy with bot play on the single player side. I'm just as much a fan of Q3:A as I am the original game. If you haven't given the new Doom game a go yet you really should. Worth the buy.

 

 

New arena video dropped.
