Those lucky enough to be participating in the Quake Champions closed beta received a huge surprise during Bethesda’s E3 Showcase when servers went down for a short time. When they came back online, new content was available for the free to play competitive FPS. The marquee addition is the introduction of Wolfenstein hero BJ Blazkowicz to the line up. His active ability allows him do dual wield any weapon for a short time, including the newly introduced Tribolt weapon.
Additionally, three new maps have been added to the game. Lockbox is designed for Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch games. The map is littered with traps, forcing players to be hyper-aware of their surroundings. Blood Run and Corrupted Keep are designed for Duel mode where two players will go head to head.
The update also contained some smaller quality of life changes. Bethesda reports that a spectator mode and custom game modes have been added to the game. Matchmaking and the Sacrifice mode rule set have also been improved. Additionally, video tutorials have been added to the game to help new players.
