Quake Cham­pi­ons

Rail­gun­ning against the shooter sta­tus quo

Games Master - - Feature -

62 FPS games are chang­ing: Re­mem­ber­ing their roots, get­ting faster and more ki­netic, re­train­ing fo­cus on player in­ge­nu­ity and mo­ment-to-mo­ment strat­egy. Now, the king of arena shoot­ers is back and set to re­ally shake things up. Ev­ery bit as fast, smooth and di­rect as its ’90s pre­de­ces­sors, Cham­pi­ons blends Quake’s hall­marks of high-fly­ing, physics-bend­ing, weapon-switch­ing tac­ti­cal play with Over­watch-style char­ac­ter-driven class abil­i­ties. That prom­ises to add even more depth and de­cep­tive in­tel­li­gence to a mul­ti­player shooter that al­ready thrives on pu­rity and pre­ci­sion, amid its many glo­ri­ous ex­cesses.
