Quake Champions Beta Test Opens up to Everyone Later This Week

Bethesda is making it easy for everyone to try out Quake Champions with an open beta that will run from May 12 to May 21. The event will see the debut of a new "4v4 Sacrifice mode" that is supposed to make the game more viable for the eSports scene, and the launch of the tech test will also signal the lifting of the game’s NDA, meaning that players can stream and capture to their heart’s content.

Good news for anyone waiting with slowly diminishing patience to get into the Quake Champions closed beta test: A "large scale tech test" scheduled to get underway on May 12 will open the doors to everyone. During the testing period, which will run until May 21, the game will be kept online 24/7 rather than running exclusively over weekends as has previously been the case.
