Quake Champions screenshot of a close quarters duel between two characters

Quake Champions is already a fairly gory game, what with the enemies exploding into a shower of giblets when killed, but according to id Software it is apparently not gory enough. As such, you can expect to see a brand new and heavily improved gore system coming in the near future.

The details are still few and far between, but as you'll see in the preview video, the new system will individually model the tiniest pieces of each champion. The end result, as you might imagine, will make some truly spectacular killing blows. It's completely over-the-top and not realistic in even the loosest definition of the term, but it sure looks like a bit of fun. After all, what's the point of dominating your enemies if you can't also send their assorted giblets straight into the Moon!

I'd love to tell you more, but the video linked above is pretty much everything id Software was willing to share so far. Once more information gets released I'll make sure to cover it, but you can also keep an eye out for yourself by occasionally visiting Steam.

And just for posterity's sake, allow me to send you off with one of the most recent official gameplay video. While the theme itself might not be relevant, it should serve as a pretty good benchmark to compare all of the new and improved gore effects to. Enjoy!
