It was always in the cards that id’s Quake Champions would go free-to-play, but the game had been lingering in paid Early Access for about a year. Today, though, during Quakecon no less, the game has gone free-to-play.
It’s a fast-paced arena shooter with a hero shooter elements sprinkled on top. The characters add some nice variety to play styles, but the best aim will always win. Without spending a dime, you gain one champion, but by playing the game and progressing, you can unlock the other champions for free.
