And by '90s revival we mean what a group of corporate marketers during that time would have come up with when they tried to capture the attitude and angst of a typical '90s teen. Which is a round about way of saying that new champion Slash is a rollerblading goth that can give her opponents the finger as she glides through an Arena blasting her competitors into gibs and tiny glowing collectibles.
Radical. And what not.
Slash comes hot on the heels of the recent Anarki reveal, which our very own Joab captured perfectly in the following Tweet.
Now, these character reveals haven't soured us on the idea of Quake Champions. In fact, they've done the opposite. They're so fake-badass and '90s that we simply can't wait to play them.
I mean, this is part of Slash's bio that you can read in full here.
Skating was always an obsession for Slash. In her head she could hear a melody, one that compelled her to twirl and dance and skate. She heard the music in her dreams more and more, until it just never stopped. It was a constant, unending song and so she kept skating.
The music got to her, and she began to see things. Impossible things. She was seeing entire separate realities. She turned to drugs to try to quell the music and the visions, starting with clozapine and moving onto heroine when nothing got better.
