With the beta in full swing, a lot of players have assumed that when the full release happens Quake Champions will also launch exclusively via the Bethesda.net launcher. In a new Q&A posted over at the online Bethesda community, id Software has confirmed that "Quake Champions will indeed be released on Steam."
You'll still need a Bethesda.net account to play, but not the launcher. Now, normally this wouldn't be all that newsworthy but with all the big publishers releasing their own digital PC platforms -- having to juggle Battle.net, Origin, Uplay, and now the Bethesda.net launcher, in addition to Steam, can become a bit of a hassle. Of the too many icons in your system tray variety. Of course this revelation also helps shed some of negativity surrounding the Bethesda.net launcher, which feels a little slow and buggy in its current state.
In the discussion id Software also confirms that it is currently hard at work optimising all aspects of the game including working on stuff like tutorials and training maps for those that might be new to the whole Quake thing.
In other recent Quake Champions news, to go along the announcement of Wolfenstein II at E3 earlier this month, BJ Blazkowicz has been added to the roster of champions.
