Hey look, it’s that time of the week again, another glorious Quake Champion video has arrived in our spa…I mean, regular mail folder. I’m kidding of course, some of us are actually looking forward to the latest blistering fast killtacular Quake experience, and now we get a female character that’s on rollerskates! If they keep this up we’ll have an alien in a tiny UFO convertible this time next week.
Slash’s active skill is a plasma trail that’ll kill ya dead…if you walk into it! Crazy stuff, who knew!? Her not-so-active skill lets her slide around corners faster, probably because she’s on those rollerskate things…or rollerblades? Is there even a difference? Bethesda’s mail also told me to tell you about their latest gameplay trailer, which is looking pretty fast and Quake like.
The Quake Champions Closed Beta will be starting tomorrow, April 6th, for those people lucky enough to get an invite to the cool-kids club, but keep in mind…it’s still under NDA, so keep the fun to yourselves!
A new week means a new Champion Profile for Quake Champions. This time, we’re starting a little trouble with one of the game’s badass women – Slash – the Roller Queen of the Arenas. She’s fast, brash and a viciously effective warrior for skilled fraggers. Her Plasma Trail ability punishes enemies who follow too close and allows her to strategically encircle key points and power-ups in a crushing wall of suffering. On her skates, she’s fast and nimble, and using Crouch Slide only increases her mobility around corners.
REMINDER: Closed Beta opens for an initial group of testers this Thursday (under NDA), with more players added very soon. Now is the time to sign-up for the Beta www.Quake.com and get ready to get your skills up to par.
CHAMPION PROFILE: Slash – Roller Queen
Active Ability – Plasma Trail: Activating Slash’s Active Ability leaves a bright trail of destruction in her wake, inflicting damage on enemies careless enough to pass through the wall of pain. Players can also choose to hit their ability button again, causing the trail to explode, inflicting massive damage to Champions in the area. Cut off key paths or encircle enemies or power-ups in a crushing barrier of suffering.
Passive Ability – Crouch Slide: Slash is already super mobile, but by crouching while running, she’ll use her skates to go into Crouch Slide, allowing her to move full speed while crouching and whip around corners smoother and faster than other Champions.
