Clutch spent most of its existence underground crushing rock and protecting his human overlords from falling rock as a mindless, nearly indestructible mining robot. After stumbling upon unexplored ruins with strange markings, it gained the power to escape and punish its masters — now it’s a woke AF killing machine.

Rumbling through the Arenas, Clutch spreads the pain amongst foes, using its Barrier Active Ability to protect itself and allies in team modes and its Still Defense Passive to gain an advantage over other Champions.

Clutch was built to deflect the toughest mining conditions and smash boulders. The Awakened Automaton is certainly capable of deflecting your rockets and smashing your dreams of becoming Champion.

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

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.
