Quake Champions female character Nyx is highlighted in a brand new trailer for the game. Nyx is the first character from the Bethesda multiplayer title to get the trailer showcase treatment and the video shows off the strengths of her skillset.
Publisher Bethesda announced Quake Champions during its E3 2016 press conference last year. The game is expected to feature several playable female characters, though the full character roster has yet to be revealed.
Quake Champions Female Character Nyx – Trailer
According to the trailer, Nyx is agile and can sneak around easily. The Quake Champions character is also a ‘Fathom Agent’ as she is the “most skilled assassin” of the Melem and has been sent to retrieve the Fathom Orb, an object which has “baleful energy” that offers powers and abilities to those who harness it.
In Quake Champions, it seems that female character Nyx has indeed been able to harness the Orb’s powers as her passive and active abilities make her quite the force to be reckoned with. Bethesda details:
Active: Ghost Walk – Using the Ghost Walk Active Ability moves Nyx into another dimension, instantly making her invisible and immune to damage. Players can use this ability to escape tough battles, maneuver unseen behind unsuspecting enemies, or even avoid damage from incoming projectiles. Re-materializing in the same spot as an enemy will result in an instant Ability Kill.
Passive: Wall Jump – Nyx’s Passive Ability extends her mobility by allowing her to jump twice–once off the floor and another time off of a nearby wall. Wall Jump can help players traverse wide distances between heights or gain the upper hand in a showdown with foes by creating more space to aim and frag.
So, Nyx will let Quake Champions players get out of a pinch in a dash and get quick quills with her speed (75) but will her small starting health (100), starting armor (75) make her an easy target? It could be that she’s best suited to skill players but fans will be able to find out more when the Quake Champions beta kicks off soon.
Quake Champions will be released on Windows PC in 2017. Closed beta sign-ups are being taken here.
