Quake Champions has just received a massive new update – alongside this content update comes a new, low-cost option for the game.
The Scalebearer version excludes every character from the game, besides Scalebearer and Ranger (you’ll also have access to a few vanity items). This cheaper iteration of the game edition essentially gives you the chance to trial the game before you decide to upgrade. The edition will be running for $4.99.
Besides the introduction of a ‘paid-trial’, you’ll now be able to hop into two new modes, instagib and No Abilities, read more about it down below:
INSTAGIB – The fast-moving, gib-tastic classic hits Quake Champions, introducing a fun, fast and casual game where every shot is a guaranteed frag. Players will start each match with the only weapons available – the Rail Gun and the Gauntlet. There are no weapon, health, armor, or power-up pickups. Champions still have active and passive abilities, so one-shot grenades from Keel and insta-kill totems from Galena add to the flesh-chewing madness.
2v2 TEAM DEATH MATCH RANKED MODE – It’s like Duel mode, but it’s 2v2. Players can team-up with a buddy and face off against other dynamic duos from around the world, strategising Champion and Ability combinations that will push them to the top of the global leaderboard.
SPRING COSMETICS – We’ve had enough snow and we’re ready for Spring. Quake Champions’ new Spring cosmetics lets players outfit Champions and weapons in a colorful collection of happy pastels and floral patterns. Spring-themed profile icons, name plates, and festive headwear, including a unicorn hat, bird’s nest, and more, round-out our Spring Collection. Go get yourself some pinks and purples and make some black-and-blues.
NO ABILITIES MODE – Party like it’s 1999, Quake Dads. Quake Champions can now go old school with the option to turn off active Champion abilities via custom games.
