Some players were afraid they will have to continue using Bethesda’s launcher.
Quake Champions is currently running in beta state and the (in)famous Bethesda.net launcher is used to update and run the game. Some people wondered if the publisher will keep that state after the release. Now we can confirm: the Steam version is planned as well.
It was confirmed through “Ask us anything” series. You will be able to download Quake Champions through Steam and update it. Still, there is the requirement to login into Bethesda’s account even if you decide to play through Valve’s platform. Your choice here.
