Today the 25th annual QuakeCon begins and to celebrate that occasion, Bethesda has a lot of free goodies in store for their fans.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 lockdown, this year's jubilee convention won't be held in Dallas, Texas, which was a tradition for the last 25 years, but instead will be a digital event called QuakeCon at Home.
If you are a fan of games from Bethesda, idSoftware, and Arkane Studios, there will be plenty of exciting content for you for the next few days to watch, which you can find out more about here.
And we have especially exciting news if you are a Quake fan and if you play Quake Champions. Starting from today until convention ends this Sunday, you can get and keep all Champions completely for free.
All you need to do is to complete 1 match in any game mode, and you will unlock them all for free, yours to keep even after the event!
And that's not all, you will get QuakeCon 2020 Railgun just for logging in during the event.
Bethesda also announced new bundles, items, and discounts in the Quake Champions store, and a new store feature; you can now convert 100 shards to 100 platinum.
The new patch will also bring economy changes to Quake Champions, which you can read below:
- Reliquaries are now only purchasable with shards
- All outfits, weapons, and vanities purchasable for shards in Customization (excluding exclusives: battle pass, pro league, lore, etc)
- All outfits, weapons, and vanities purchasable for platinum in Store (excluding exclusives: battle pass, lore, etc)
- Lore Scroll duplicates now grant 1 shard (instead of 0)
- Vanity duplicates now grant 5 shards (instead of 1)
- Weapons duplicates now grant 10 shards (instead of 1)
- Champion duplicates now grant 10 shards (instead of 1)
- Weapon prices reduced from 1500 to 1000 platinum
- Uncommon Outfit prices reduced from 1500 to 900 platinum
- Rare Outfit prices reduced from 1500 to 1200 platinum
- Vanity prices reduced from 1000 to 500 platinum
