The Quake World Championships is currently held at the QuakeCon, but Bethesda and DreamHack already announced a Quake Champions expansion. The organizers revealed that there would be two more tournaments this year – one in North America, and another one in Europe, respectively.
The DreamHack Denver Quake Championship will be running from October 20th through October 22nd and it will have a $75,000 prize pool. During the tournament, fans will enjoy not only individual players competing against each other but also a 4vs4 team-based Sacrifice mode gameplay. The qualifiers for the DreamHack Denver event will take place in September.
As for the European tournament, it will be running from December 1st to December 4th. Sweden will be the host country of the Quake Champions Invitational at DreamHack Winter. The most seasoned e-sport pros will face each other in Duel and Sacrifice mode and get their share of the impressive $350,000 prize pool.
Players will be able to register for the events via DreamHack’s website. Some e-sports pros will receive special invitations to take part in the tournaments.
According to Bethesda’s statement, details about the additional Quake Champions events will be announced at a later date.
Quake fans, who cannot be at QuakeCon 2017, can watch the Quake World Championships finals via Twitch. Forty Duel competitors and eight Sacrifice teams will compete to get the title.
AMD has entered into a partnership with Bethesda to sponsor the tournament. Quake Champions is already in Early Access on Steam, so players will be able to polish their skills while watching the finals.
