Bethesda is offering a quick look at one of the upcoming Arenas for Quake Champions. Burial Chamber is a gothic-styled area with platforms, lava pools, tight corridors, and a handful of open spaces. Its numerous environmental hazards ensure that players have to keep an eye out on their footing, mindful of the flowing lava, in addition to enemy fire. Check out the reveal trailer below. Players who want to sign up for the upcoming closed beta can now submit their name at Quake.com.
A new trailer and handful of screenshots offer a first look at Quake Champions’ upcoming take on The Camping Grounds, Blood Covenant. Fans of the series will remember the original level from Quake III Arena, Q3DM6. The new version is said to retain several sections, namely “the long Jump Pad to the Rocket Launcher, the Quad Damage spawn, the Railgun ledge, and the tightly spaced battles in the Pillars.” Newer bits take into account the active and passive abilities available in Champions. PAX East attendees can drop by Bethesda’s booth (#18007 and 20007) to try it out.
Online pre-registration will launch today at 7:00 p.m. (CST) for QuakeCon 2013. Admission is free, as always, but pre-registration will be for the for-pay packages that offer additional perks and extra goodies. There are four packages in total, each offering different extras, from swag to guaranteed seating, as well as options to mix and match. All packages are on a first-come, first-served basis.
