Quake Champions Gets New Character Trailer Highlighting Clutch

Today, developer id Software and publisher Bethesda released the fifth character trailer, highlighting the champion Clutch.

The new trailer is 53 seconds and essentially provides an overview of the awakened automaton.

According to Bethesda and the new trailer, Clutch is a combat, killing machine who is good for players who want to be right in the thick of the action. Here’s an overview of the character via Bethesda:

Shield on! Clutch, the awakened automaton, joins the battle as the latest Champion out for blood in Quake Champions. Built initially as a mining robot, Clutch was altered into an organic killing machine after a network malfunction during a routine data transfer. Now its only mission is to destroy all signs of life within the Arenas.

Active Ability: Barrier 

Clutch can block incoming attacks with its Barrier active ability. Its large force-shield once was used to protect itself from organics and drills when mining, but in the Arena, it works as a solid defense against enemy Champions.

Passive Ability: Still Defense

Don’t be too hasty when trying to attack Clutch head on. Built to withstand the toughest of mining conditions, Clutch will stand strong using its Still Defense passive ability to deflect attacks like a boulder.

Clutch is a playable character in the ongoing closed beta, which began on April 6th. Quake Champions is in development for PC and is planned to release sometime this year.
