Quickie video game history lesson: back in 2009, publisher Bethesda Softworks’ parent company ZeniMax Media acquired id Software and brought them into their stable of game developers. The company was responsible for the creation of the modern first-person shooter genre with titles like Wolfenstein 3D, DOOM, and Quake. Back in 2014, the Wolfenstein franchise was resurrected with Wolfenstein: The New Order (developed by MachineGames). Then, just last month, came the return of DOOM, with id handling development themselves.
Now the third id Software classic has officially found new life. During Bethesda’s E3 2016 presentation Quake Champions, which is also developed by id, was announced with a cinematic reveal trailer that you can check out below.
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.
Quake Champions features a roster of unique characters, each with their own distinctive abilities, allowing you to fight the way you want. Get your first look at Quake Champions and some of its heroes in the cinematic reveal trailer, debuted during the #BE3 2016 Showcase.
