Quake Champions is a frenetic test of skill and the ultimate competitive game. The purest form within this proving ground is Duel mode, a 1-v-1 showdown to decide who is best, once-and-for-all.
In Quake Champions, Duel mode introduces an additional layer of strategy, incorporating multiple Champions with differing Abilities. To start, players will select three Champions in a snake-style draft before heading to the Arenas. In choosing their roster, players will have to consider which Champions are better suited to their unique play style and which are effective counters to their opponents’ choices.
Taking a cue from fighting games, Duel is played as a best-of-three match. Within each round, a player has to defeat all three of the opponent’s Champions. When a player is fragged, they will respawn as another of their chosen Champions. When one player has all three Champions eliminated, a winner for that match is declared.
It’s almost time to return to the Arenas, so dust off your rocket jumping and Railgun skills!
Developed by id Software, in conjunction with Saber Interactive, Quake Champions is a return to the frenetic, fast-paced first-person shooter competition that established Quake as the granddaddy of all eSports games more than 20 years ago. Quake Champions delivers the dark mythos of the first Quake combined with the groundbreaking multiplayer mayhem of ‘Quake III Arena’ with a major modern twist – Champions. These fierce warriors each wield unique attributes and abilities, enabling players to compete in their own distinctive style.
