Quake Champions Reveals An Impressive March Update

Looks like a great time to jump back in the Arena.

The Quake Champions March Update is here, and it includes a ton of performance updates, game optimizations, balance changes, and more bug fixes than you can cram into the hallowed halls of Blood Covenant. We also have a brand-new season of rewards for you to earn, new items in the store, and some news on our esports plans for 2019.

A New Season of Rewards and Custom Games for All

It’s a whole new season, Quakers. Progress through the Season 2 Battle Pass to earn exclusive vanity rewards like the Flintlock Shotgun, Visor’s Plasma Emission System, and the coveted Tesla Lightning Gun. Plus, we’ve added a few new items in the store, like the community-created Chibi Icons Pack.

Rewards aren’t the only thing players can earn for free this season: we’re giving ALL players access to create their own Custom Games! Now everyone can play around with match rules, practice against bots, or just run around the maps.

Champions Pack Discontinued

As part of our shift towards the Battle Pass, we have discontinued selling the Champions Pack. Current Champions Pack and Scalebearer Edition owners will keep their Champions and vanity items unlocked through those packs. Players can still acquire Champions through Shards or with Platinum, but the Champions Pack is no longer available for purchase.

Esports Happenings

We’ve witnessed some of the most exhilarating moments in esports across our Quake Champions tournaments, and we’re just getting started. Our world-class competitors will once again get the chance to prove their skill in the new yearlong 2019-2020 season, which kicks off with a Duel tournament at QuakeCon 2019 and leads up to a World Championship at QuakeCon 2020—the 25th year of QuakeCon!

There’s much more news to come about how we’re restructuring our esports season this year, and we’re excited to share it with you soon.

Performance Optimizations and Quality of Life Updates

The March Update includes numerous server networking and client rendering improvements that should make performance feel more consistent overall. In this update we’ve also combed through each of the maps to fix several issues impacting performance, and we’ve squashed an exhaustive list of bugs.

From settings customization to soundtrack selection, we’ve added a bunch of new QoL features to Quake Champions. Highlights include a “Learn” tutorials section for new players; improved Bot AI and ability support; crosshair scaling; a skippable intro cinematic; and more!

We’ll see you in the Arena!
