Bethesda and Twitch are teaming up to bring you a variety of awesome new content! From Twitch Prime in-game loot and Twitch Drops to being able to purchase Quake Champions on Twitch directly, we’ve got you covered and even better yet, the Twitch Prime promotion is now extended until October 9th!
Here to explain in more detail is guest blogger Tim Willits!
Hello, Tim Willits here, Studio Director at id Software and Game Director on Quake Champions.
I’m excited to announce our partnership with Twitch and reveal our exclusive Quake Champions items created only for Twitch Prime members. We also have some exciting news about Twitch Drops and the fact that you’ll be able to purchase the Champion’s Pack (with all current and future Champions) on Twitch directly.
But first let me talk about Quake Champions.
Quake Champions is our newest game in the storied Quake franchise. It’s a multiplayer-only arena shooter, built in the spirit of fast, competitive action, where you’ll have the ultimate playground to prove your FPS skills against players from around the world. For people who may not know, the original Quake game was the very first true 3D action game, released twenty years ago. The original Quake helped shape modern first-person shooters with its intense speed, crazy weapons, and incredible multiplayer, and today, Quake Champions continues that tradition of groundbreaking innovation with cutting-edge graphics, unique gameplay, and over-the-top action.
Quake also has a long history of players recording “frag videos” and streaming their games online. Even in the earliest days of Quake, players found a way to share their experiences with friends and other fans. Back then, fans had to work pretty hard to make this happen. But today, Twitch makes that all so much easier. Thanks to Twitch, our Quake players can easily reach millions of fans and connect directly with their followers, showing off their greatest plays and all of their incredible matches. The Twitch community has become a critical component to Quake Champions, and we’re excited to see how our players and fans use Twitch to share their experiences and express themselves in fun and creative ways.
To show our appreciation for both Twitch and our fans, the Quake Champions team has created some really cool, exclusive items, just for Twitch Prime members:
● The Exclusive “Twitch Rocket Launcher” — The Rocket Launcher is the most powerful weapon in the game, and now you can Rocket Jump and gib your opponents with an exclusive, Twitch-purple weapon skin.
● Twitch Name Plate and Profile Icon — Customize your profile and let everyone in the Arenas know you’re a proud Twitch Prime member.
● Three In-Game Crates — Each Crate gives you 2 random, high-quality items, like unique skins and shaders for your weapons or Champions.
Starting today, you’ll also be able to buy the Champions Pack on Twitch, which gives you access to all 11 current Champions, including Ranger, Visor, Scalebearer, Nyx, Anarki, Clutch, Sorlag, Galena, Slash, BJ Blazkowicz from id Software’s Wolfenstein, and the new DOOM Slayer. The Champions Pack also includes all future Champions, including at least six additional Champions expected to release before the endof 2018, and any that follow.
That’s not all, when you buy the Champions Pack you’ll also get an exclusive Early Access skin for series diehard Ranger, and Three Reliquaries (loot chests containing three in-game items for profile, Champion, and weapon customization, like skins, shaders, nameplates, and more). If that’s not enough awesomeness for you, for every pack you buy, you’ll get to unlock a Twitch Crate, which will come loaded with bits, badges and custom emotes!
We’re also excited to announce that fans who watch the Quake World Championship or any of your favorite Quake streams on Twitch will have an opportunity to win Loot Drops. All you need to do is link your Twitch and Bethesda.net accounts and start watching Quake on Twitch for a chance to get in-game loot such as backpacks, chests, and reliquaries. The more you watch, the more you can win!
Lastly, I want to thank all of our fans who have supported Quake for the last twenty years, it is you, the Quake fan, that humbly inspire us to make Quake Champions the best game we can. I look forward to seeing you all fragging away online!
Tim Willits and the entire Quake Champions Team
