The folks at Bethesda didn’t have a lot to say about Quake Champions, but they did want to make sure you tried the game out with a free week of play! They briefly touched on the new update that came out last week to add a few new items and gameplay options while the game is still in Early Access, and hinted that there would be new additions coming to the game shortly. They also made a point of highlighting that there would be a bunch of new esports events coming for the game both at Dreamhack and during Quake Con, with more being planned as we speak.
But the big takeaway from the Quake Champions section is that Bethesda will be offering it for free from June 10th-17th for you to download and play on Steam. The fact that the company is willing to basically give it away for free for a solid week of play over the summer when people are out of school and able to jump online and give it a shot is amazing. We’ll see if the esports promise pans out down the road for more tournaments beyond those two events. For now, enjoy the trailer for the free weekend.
