Called Duel Mode, it’s essentially a modified one-on-one deathmatch that takes inspiration from fighting games. Players will each draft three Champions before the match starts; once it begins, they must eliminate all of the other’s Champions to win a round. When a player is killed in a round, they come back to life as one of their remaining Champions. Then, winner of two out of three rounds wins the match.
You can check out a trailer for the new mode above.
Announced last summer, Quake Champions is a class-based take on the old Quake formula. It’s only planned for PC at the moment, but developer id Software has said that a console release isn’t out of the question. It’s coming sometime in 2017, and it’ll be a free-to-play game.
