Bethesda has confirmed that the open beta for the upcoming shooter game Quake Champions will start this Friday. The game was already accessible to players that were invited to the closed beta tests.
Quake Champions will be a freemium shooter game because hero characters are locked behind a paywall in the free version. Each hero character features unique abilities that can give players the edge over other players.
Once the game releases, both free players and paid players will have access to the same maps and compete in the same brackets, with the difference being that winning matches will most definitely be easier when playing with paid Champions.
Once the open beta starts this Friday players will be able to sign up for an account on Bethesda's official website after which they will receive a beta test key by e-mail automatically.
Despite going into open betatesting, the game still suffers from several issues that haven't been touched upon since players reported them during the initial closed beta test. This means that players may find issues that hinder gameplay during the open beta test.
The full version of Quake Champions is expected to launch later this year.
