Today we’re excited to begin offering first looks at the Champions from Quake Champions, starting with the agile and covert Nyx. Nyx offers speed and subterfuge to players with abilities meant to showcase movement skills and strategy.

CHAMPION PROFILE: Nyx – Fathom Agent

Starting Statistics:
· Starting Health: 100
· Starting Armor: 75
· Speed: 270

Active Ability

  • Ghost Walk: using the Ghost Walk Active Ability moves Nyx into another dimension, instantly making her invisible and immune to damage. Players can use this ability to escape tough battles, maneuver unseen behind unsuspecting enemies, or even avoid damage from incoming projectiles. Re-materializing in the same spot as an enemy will result in an instant Ability Kill.

Passive Ability

  • Wall Jump: Nyx’s Passive Ability extends her mobility by allowing her to jump twice – once off the floor and another time off of a nearby wall. Wall Jump can help players traverse wide distances between heights or gain the upper hand in a showdown with foes by creating more space to aim and frag.

It’s almost time to return to the Arenas, so dust off your rocket jumping and Railgun skills – sign-ups for the highly anticipated Closed Beta for Quake Champions are now open on the game’s new official site: http://www.quake.com
