id Software announces Quake Champions for PC

"Yes Quake is back."

id Software has announced a new Quake game for PC called Quake Champions.

It was described as an arena shooter by id Software's Tim Willits, and it will be fast - running at 120hz with unlocked frame-rates! But it will also have unique characters with different abilities and attributes - a bit like Overwatch perhaps? We got a look at what must have been some of these heroes in a teaser trailer for the game. One guy had a rotating saw for a hand; another character had a blink-like dash; and I'm sure I saw a railgun.

Tim Willits declared Bethesda's eSports intent with Quake Champions and said it would expand leagues and tournaments beyond QuakeCon - an event, incidentally, we'll have to wait for to find out more about the game.

Still, as Willits said, "Yes, Quake is back."
