“In true Quake fashion, you’ll have an arsenal of powerful and unique weapons, each of which will feel familiar to long-time Quake players. ‘No loadouts, no limit to the amount of guns you can carry,’ Willits assured the crowd. ‘Time the weapon pickups, or kill your opponents. That’s how you get weapons in a Quake game.’
Quake Champions will be going into closed beta in 2017.
