of first-person shooters, saying this will feature fast-paced, arena-style
gameplay and esports support.
Here's a short trailer

is now the online home to the project. Here is what they have to say
about it for now:
The fast, skill-based arena-style competition that
turned the original Quake games into multiplayer legends is making a triumphant
return with Quake Champions. Running at an impressive 120hz with unlocked
framerates, id Software’s new multiplayer shooter is getting ready to take PC
gaming by storm once more.
Quake Champions features a roster of unique characters, each with their own
distinctive abilities, giving every player a chance to play to their strengths.

“20 years ago, Quake set new standards for multiplayer competition and pushed
the boundaries for graphics and gameplay,” said Tim Willits, Studio Director, id
Software. “It’s important to all of us at id Software that Quake Champions
remains true to the Quake legacy, and delivers the speed and gameplay our
longtime fans expect, while also pressing forward by introducing new gameplay
opportunities with new Champions and abilities.”
Following its launch, Quake Champions will be supported at eSports tournaments
around the world, including the annual QuakeCon, which takes place in Dallas.
