Get ready friends and fraggers: Quake Champions’ April update is here! This update brings a host of refinements to the game, including additional content in the form of a new playable Champion, map and weapon!

New Champion – Strogg & Peeker

Half military-grade metal, half decaying flesh, all rage - the primary enemy of Quake II and Quake 4 is back! Players can now enter the Arena as Strogg and his trusty, controllable drone sidekick Peeker!
