    Looks like some of the Specialist abilities from BO3 in there. If they can balance them well it could be pretty cool!

    Don't give two shits about VR, I'd be happy with a Quake continuation in id Tech 6. Doom demonstrated we can be happy with a classic feeling FPS.

    That's one of the worst teasers ever imo. Full CG BSfest.

    Anyone else remember the Sarge trailer for Q3A? Now that's how it's done.

    Is anyone else only interested if you can benchmark with this game? In a demo preferably.

    SHIT! I just checked and I've got a code!

    Now all I need is a PC since mine is in a shipping container on it's way to another country. Fuck.

    lucky bugger! Ahwell, pubg should keep me busy until I hopefully get a key in later waves (or Open beta).

    Now that im seeing a lot of this will be classed/hero based (more like overwatch) it's turning me off it a little bit

    I liked quake 3 and unreal tournament because everyone had the same guns and movement it came down to your actual skill level to how good you where, now people will just switch class half way through to counter you

    Unfortunately it is the only way forward I think. The reaction for an average player getting 30-0'd these days isn't to try and get better, it is to blame the game and ragequit, or call hacks. Games like quake where a small skill difference can very easily turn into a COMPLETELY lopsided win just don't seem to hold players for very long unless they have a bunch of mental excuses for the loser (like, he only one cos cheap hero, or counterpick or whatever).

    the only good thing about Q3 was that it was KISS and had very tight gameplay and great guns.

    Champions is gonna be another bloody Overwatch/TF2 ripoff

    I'm hoping they will have something like a "classic" mode which will just go back to the Q1 days.

    I also miss QWTF heaps, and would love a no special abilities TF mode. I'm 100% they will have a TF/CTF mode in the game, but it'll probably keep the idiotic hero abilities shown in the trailer.

    I would hold out judgement until open beta. I don't mind mild flavour of abilities sprinkled over quake. What gives me fits is loadouts. If it's going to be promoted as standard rules I don't see this game living long.

    Never not bought a quake, so will have to get it either way. Let's hope it's better than the Doom MP.
