'Quake Champions' Introduces Anarki Champion, Closed Beta Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on March 30, 2017 @ 5:29 p.m. PDT

Quake Champions is a competitive, arena-style first-person shooter for the PC that returns fans to the frenetic, skill-based competition that made Quake an industry legend and solidified it as one of the first major eSports games.

Quake Champions will deliver the mythos of the first Quake with the groundbreaking multiplayer mayhem of Quake III Arena. The game will also introduce a major new feature to the franchise – Champions – a roster of fierce warriors, each with unique attributes and abilities, which enable players to compete in their own distinctive style.

Let’s talk about Anarki. He’s a great example of how not all Champions in Quake Champions are gritty, marauding, galactic warlords like Scalebearer. We also have counter-culture, 90s-esque sh*t-talkers who are loud and weird and let’s be honest: sick in the head.

Love him or hate him, Quake III Arena veterans will recognize Anarki immediately from his days flying through the maps on his signature hoverboard. The board’s back, the mohawk’s back, and so is his drug-addled, cybernetically enhanced transhuman attitude. Anarki is all about speed – and needles – and his hoverboard means you are going to be moving fast. Really fast.

CHAMPION PROFILE: Anarki – Transhuman Punk

Starting Statistics:

  • Starting Health: 75
  • Starting Armor: 25
  • Speed: 320

Active Ability – Health Injection: Taking too much damage? Good thing for you Anarki is well-versed in various performance enhancing … treatments. Use the Health Injection Active Ability to give Anarki a quick heal mid-match. Juice it up, baby!

Passive Ability – Hoverboard Air Control: Anarki’s hoverboard is a brutal bonus. Anarki is already one of the fastest Champions in the game, but the hoverboard means he can actually gain speed as he strafe-jumps around the Arenas, reaching a ludicrous velocity. In addition, his hoverboard awards a special Passive Ability that allows players more control in mid-air to turn sharply and chase down enemies or escape those who dare follow him up a jump pad.

Anarki is one of the Champions you’ll be able to try out during the upcoming Closed Beta, which will begin on Thursday, April 6 with an initial group of testers. More players will be added into the Closed Beta over time, so make sure to sign up now.

Quake Champions continues id Software’s tradition of pushing the boundaries of modern technology and will deliver stunning graphics running at 120hz with unlocked frame rates. The game will make it easy for new players to learn while also delivering the challenge and competition 20-year Quake veterans expect.

Quake Champions is designed and built for eSports, integrating competitive features for professional and amateur levels of play. The game will be supported at tournaments and in leagues around the globe, including QuakeCon, the annual event that attracts tens of thousands of id Software fans and competitors to Dallas.
