Bethesda and id have a new showcase trailer out for Ruins of Sarnath, one of the new maps for Quake Champions. It's a slime-slicked temple that clearly draws heavy inspiration from Quake's occult, Lovecraftian roots--I mean, the map has a giant frikken eye in the middle of it. Take a look at the trailer below to see what I mean. I'm skeptical and excited for Quake Champions at the same time; I hope it just isn't a me-too ripoff of Overwatch, as we've seen how that goes before.
Today we have another new video taking a look at one of the deadly Arenas coming in Quake Champions – The Ruins of Sarnath. This slime-slicked temple of the Elder God Cthalha has everything – verticality with jump pads and ledges, tight corridors for intense showdowns, and wide open spaces for the multiplayer mayhem that defines the Quake franchise as the ultimate skill-based competitive shooter.
From the Heavy Armor in the Sluiceway to the Rail Gun lurking in the Cistern to the unmistakable Eye of Cthalha, keeping an ever-present watch on Quad Damage and Protection Power-Ups, players will find an Arena purpose-built for competition and loaded with gibs.
