New Champion, Map, and More Announced at PAX East


Fresh from its PAX East reveal, Quake Champions is proud to show what’s next for friends and fraggers alike in its upcoming April update. Scheduled for later this month, the update will bring a host of fresh content and features on top of a suite of gameplay improvements and refinements.

New Champion – Strogg & Peeker

Half metal, half decaying flesh, and 100% ready to rage, the primary enemy of Quake II and Quake 4 is back as Strogg fights to be freed from the Dreamlands and reestablish contact with his ruthless warlord, Makron.

Players will also be able to take control and fight as Strogg’s drone sidekick, Peeker, who can fly around the battlefield, shoot at enemies and deal damage with its explosive self-destruct attack. Enemy kills are turned into a nutritional paste called Stroyent that provides 25HP, but players need to act fast – other Strogg players can steal your Stroyent!


New Map – Awoken


Players will find themselves navigating a misty labyrinth of tropical ruins in this month’s newest map, Awoken.

The vine-entrenched arena will be playable in Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Duel, 2v2, and Instagib. Stay woke to stay alive in this map, Champions.

New Weapon – Plasma Gun



A blast from the past, the Plasma Gun from Quake III Arena finds its new home in Quake Champions! This high-powered cannon melts unwitting foes with bursts of pure energy and is sure to shake things up when it joins the Quake Champions arsenal later this month!

2018 Esports Schedule Revealed

This year will also see two major and two minor tournaments for Quake Champions hosted for professional competitors, as well as additional online events hosted for all levels of competition.


The first of these tournaments will be at Dreamhack Tours this coming May. For the first time in Quake history, there will be no prior qualifiers – all players at the event can register to compete for the title! Registration is now open for Dreamhack Tours here.

Additional events in 2018 include a major event, the QuakeCon Open at QuakeCon 2018 in August; a minor event at PGL in October; and the final major event – the Quake Champions Invitational – to be held at Dreamhack Winter this December.

Meanwhile, the Collegiate Star League begins competition in Quake Champions in June, with additional online tournaments occurring weekly and monthly with varying prize pools through the ESL Go4 League, BattleFy, and the Quake Champions Open League.

See you in the Arena!

Сада лепо и да врате гранате, и избаце оно ђубре од триболта. 

Хоће ли више избацити Clutcha као хероја комплетно, и вратити Slash у нормалу.
