Up until now all we'd seen of id Software's PC-exclusive competitive FPS Quake Champions was a brief trailer crammed full of split-second slices of gameplay, but now we have a whole two minutes of uninterrupted footage depicting a typical round in the arena shooter.

As you can see, it all moves very fast, something that should come as no surprise coming from the studio behind the recent Doom reboot.

Where Doom seemed like a mix of old and new, Quake Champions looks a little more conventionally oldschool with plenty of manic bunny-hopping and rocket-jumping like it's 1999.

A closed beta is kicking off this weekend with more players being added over time, so feel free to toss your hat into the ring by signing up here.
