Quake Champions Will be Free - Or Not

With our annual LAN event coming this week, it's interesting to see that Quake Champions is in the works and the latest intel shows that this will be a Free to Play game - unless you want to buy extra characters for the game. While these characters don't offer a lot of extra features as far as ability and dynamics, they will allow you to skin up your player and change things around a bit. It's almost like a League of Legends idea - some characters free, but you'll have to buy (or maybe earn) other unlocks.

“At its core, it’s a free-to-play game,” Willits said, “with the option to buy the Champion Pack and just get in and play with all the Champions. There are a number of Quake players that just want to play their Quake, right? And they are familiar with the business model of our previous games, and they are totally fine. ‘I want to buy the game. I want to start playing. I want to have access to all the Champions.’
