Patch Notes – CBT 10 (E3 Build)


Welcome to the Quake Champions Beta! We’ve made a lot of changes in this build, many of which we just revealed at the Bethesda E3 Showcase! The first big change is that beta is now open 24/7! That means you can just in and play any time you want, unless we have a maintenance window or are deploying a future patch. We’ll keep you in the loop about any planned outages.
We’ve also added a LOT of goodness. Here’s the list of other new additions that you can check out right now:
 
NEW Champion:
B.J. Blazkowicz added to the Champion roster!
•    Dual Wield (Active)

  • BJ calls for back-up and answers his own call. Double [censored] weapons, BJ takes turns firing them in rapid succession to lay down some heavy fire, but he will burn through some serious ammo to do so.

•    Regeneration (Passive)
BJ can regenerate any damaged health inside one 25 HP block, if he doesn’t receive damage for 3 seconds.
•    Stats:
•    100 / 100 HP
•    25 / 50 AP
•    310 -> 560 ups

•    Customizations includes 3 outfits and 1 vanity item.
 
NEW Weapon:
•    New weapon added – The Tri-Bolt!
o    The Tri-Bolt fires three bolts armed with timed explosives. Each bolt fires in quick succession, allowing the user to concentrate or spread the fire as needed.
 
NEW Maps:
-          Lockbox added -- a new Ithagnal themed arena for Sacrifice, Team Deathmatch, and Deathmatch
-          Blood Run added -- a new Volkerh themed Duel arena
-          Corrupted Keep added -- a new Goroth themed Duel arena
 
Custom Game:
-          Party with friends to play private matches on the arena and game mode of your choice!
-          Party Leaders can pre-configure teams in the Match Lobby by dragging players between pillars.
-          Start Match button will be disabled if the amount of players present is lower than required
-          Start Match button will be disabled in Duel mode if players don’t have 3 Champions available
 
NEW Spectator Mode:
•    Spectator mode added within Custom Game!
o    Invite friends to your party and drag them to the Match Lobby Spectator Box to allow them to spectate the match.
o   Spectators can toggle camera modes between players, rooms, and free-float by pressing [L. SHIFT].
o   Players can cycle through players or rooms with [LEFTARROW] and [RIGHTARROW] or by pressing [1]-[0] number keys for specific players or rooms.
o   Spectators can press [X] to toggle x-ray outlines to see players locations through walls to help follow the action.
 
Main Menu UI:
•    Added Tutorials section.
•    Updated Loot Box Store
•    New Shader Customization preview icons (now correctly matching their patterns)
 
NEW Tutorials:
•    We have added the first three videos in our series of Beta Tutorials – “Welcome to Quake Champions,” “Health, Armor, & You: Controlling Your Stack,” and “Power-Ups: Turning the Tides of War.”
•    These videos are currently accessible by clicking the Movie icon on the Main Menu.
 
In-game:
•    New initial spawn points in Duel for Ruins of Sarnath
•    Adjusted item placements on all maps affecting all modes
•    Fix for not being able to pick-up armor shards or the Soul until only after their bounce animation ends

Music:
•    Added new music set for the Dimension of the Doomed (Goroth themed maps: Burial Chamber, Corrupted Keep)
•    Added music set for the Netherworld (Ithagnal themed maps: Lockbox)
 
Known Issues:
•    A party of more than two players may enter a Duel lobby. The Start Match button is not disabled if the extraneous players remain present on the pillars instead of being moved to Spectator. Players who are still stuck on the podium after two Duel players are selected will be presented with an error message that you've been "kicked from the match." Upon receiving this error, you will need to restart the client to continue playing.

I took that to mean online 24/7, when applying for a key it still says:

Closed Beta

Grab your closed beta key.

Wow insane update. I'm mindblown. Thanks so much for the hard work, keep moving forward! Also the 1mill tournament announcement made my jaw drop.

But with the E3 trailer. That was max cringe, please no dubstep next time.

 Progress at least, if they keep pulling these kinds of updates I'd have faith.

so we've been asking for a proper tutorial portion to the game and what do we get?

Crappy videos. 

Thanks for not taking the time to create a proper tutorial portion.

And regenerative health?

Good grief can we not. duel wild is fine but regenerative health is terrible even if only to 25hp.
