Railgunning against the shooter status quo
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.
