Quake Champions Spring Update Launches; Cheaper Mode Comes Tomorrow

Bethesda announces the launch of a March update for Quake Champions, bringing new cosmetics to id Software's Early Access multiplayer shooter along with three new gameplay modes. The new modes are Instagib, Ranked 2v2, and No Abilities mode, which just relies on shooting. They also announce plans to launch a new Scalebearer Pack at 1:00 pm EDT tomorrow, which will offer a way to get started with the game and two starter champions for just $4.99. This trailer celebrates all the news, and here are the details:
Available for $4.99, the Scalebearer Pack offers players instant, early access to the game along with two starter Champions, Vanity items, cosmetics and more. The pack also includes a three-day rental of all Champions so players can try-before they buy. The Scalebearer Pack will be available tomorrow, March 16, at 1:00 pm eastern via Steam and Bethesda.net, and includes:

  • Instant access to Quake Champions
  • Two permanently-unlocked Champions: Scalebearer and Ranger
  • Ranger’s “Spoils of War” vanity sword and helmet
  • Three Ranger armor shaders
  • Three Backpacks


  • INSTAGIB – The fast-moving, gib-tastic classic hits Quake Champions, introducing a fun, fast and casual game where every shot is a one-hit kill. Players will start each match with the only weapons available – the Rail Gun and the Gauntlet -- and there are no weapon, health, armor, or powerup 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 TDM 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, strategizing 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.

I got a free CD Key sent to me a while back as a gift and was stoked. Quake 2 is my favorite game of all time. Turns out the game is dead, and after 20 minutes in queue for my first match, it popped and I was in a lobby against super experienced players.
