With several new Champions, modes and features that we've built upon throughout Early Access with community feedback, we feel like now is the perfect time to open the doors to Quake Champions. However, there is still additional polish, improvements and new content - like the upcoming Capture the Flag mode - that we want to get into the game before we declare it "fully released."
Quake Champions will remain in Early Access for the time being, but now we're opening up feedback and input to everyone. Play the game, tell us what you think and help shape Quake Champions into the best FPS it can be!
Free-to-play players get access to all Quickplay, Ranked and Arcade game modes and maps currently available in Early Access, plus two free Champions: Ranger and Scalebearer. New players can unlock more Champions by completing the in-game tutorial and by earning Favor — in-game currency used to unlock Champions and Backpacks — just by playing matches!
Additionally, there's one free Champion on rotation every week. Try them all out and see which ones fit your playstyle. Once you've found a new favorite, you can purchase Champions to own using Platinum, Quake Champions' premium currency.
For a limited time, you also can pick up the Champions Pack, which grants access to all current Champions and instantly unlocks every Champion released in the future. Players who purchase the Champions Pack also get the ability to create Custom Matches for you and your friends, plus some sweet in-game goodies like the exclusive "Gladiator Ranger" skin.
To make it easier than ever to dive into the Arena, we're discounting the Champions Pack to just $19.79 for the duration of QuakeCon! After that, the Champions Pack will cost $29.99 USD for a limited time, but hurry — this deal will revert back to its original $39.99 USD price tag on September 4, 2018.
