Scalebearer artwork from Quake Champions

Quake Champions is an upcoming PC exclusive arena shooter designed to be as close to the FPS classics as possible. However, unlike the shooters of old Quake Champions will feature a variety of unique heroes, each with their own skills and abilities. But don't worry about any this messing up the balance because there will 'purist' games modes in both standard and ranked play, so if you don't like these RPG elements you can completely ignore them.

That said, if you're interested in seeing what these abilities might look like in action you'll find a preview video for the heavyweight champion Scalebearer down below. Apparently he has the ability to kill enemies by falling on their heads, kind of like a fatter and more angry version of Mario! With that image now stuck in your head, here's the video:

The signups for the Closed Beta have now finally begun, so if you want to give Quake Champions a try for yourself make sure to head over to the official website and put in your email address. The whole sign up process is about as simple as it gets, but do keep in mind that there is no guarantee you will get in as soon as the beta opens given how the keys are distributed at random. On the positive side, the developers have said that everyone will get in eventually, so its definitively worth the few seconds it will take you to sign up. Good luck!
