March 15 Update to Bring Instagib, 2v2 Ranked Play, Spring Cosmetics, ‘No Abilities’ Mode

STRAIGHT FROM THE DEVS: MARCH 8 2018 - Quake Champions is getting new content, features, and improvements driven by feedback from the community. Next Thursday, March 15, id Software will roll out the next big free update for Quake Champions, delivering new ways to play and new looks. This will include the return of Instagib - the first new game mode added since closed beta - the introduction of ‘No Abilities Mode’ in custom games; a new 2v2 version of Ranked Play for competitive players and a variety of seasonal cosmetics to commemorate the coming of Spring.

Quake Champions’ March Update will include:

NEW GAMEPLAY – Everyone, meet Instagib – The fast-moving, gib-tastic classic will finally make its way to Quake Champions, introducing a fast and casual game where shots are one-hit kills. Players will start each match with the only weapons available – the Rail Gun and the Gauntlet -- and there will not be weapon, health, armor, or power-up pickups. Champions will still be able to use active and passive abilities, and cool-down hourglasses will spawn on the map.

NEW RANKSIntroducing 2v2 TDM Ranked Mode – In addition to the head-to-head intensity of Duel mode, players will be able to grab a buddy and face off against teams from around the world in deadly 2v2 showdowns. Finding the right Champion and ability combinations will make the difference in the fight for the top spot on the leaderboard.

NEW LOOKS – Spring Cosmetics – Spring is coming, so it’s time to refresh wardrobes. Quake Champions’ Spring cosmetics will let players outfit their Champions in a colorful collection of happy pastels for Weapon and Champion shaders. In addition, new Spring-themed profile icons, name plates, and festive headwear, including a unicorn hat, bird’s nest, and more. Nothing says fragging like happy pastels.

NEW SETTINGS – Activate ‘No Abilities’ Mode – Players looking to go old school will have the option to turn off active Champion abilities. This play style is only available in custom games.

A free-to-play version will launch in the future

Quake Champions is available now in Early Access on Steam and via Bethesda.net. Players can jump in immediately by purchasing the Champions Pack, which unlocks all current and future Champions as well as other exclusive in-game bonuses for $29.99. A free-to-play version of the game will launch in the future. For additional information, please visit www.Quake.com.
