A new patch to the Public Test Server was just released. With it comes a lot of new things for those who follow the lore of Quake Champions.
Exciting things have come with the introduction of a new map known as Exile, expanding the knowledge of the realms of the Elder Gods with which we have been familiar with so far. The Lurching King, a former ruler of the Realm of Black Magic, thus far only alluded to and mostly talked about outside the game, is a new addition to the roster, sitting alongside the Elder Gods that have graced us thus far…
Where we have seen the Lurching King in Quake Champions before now:

Volkerh Lore Scroll 6:
5 And all others left to waste away, as did the Lurching King without his Crown!”
Volkerh Lore Scroll 7:
1 Let my shrieks of agony carry my joy to your ears, Volkerh! Let my offal stain the unhallowed throne of the Lurching King! Take me, as I have offered myself through the Litany of Cries, and walked the twelve-thousand-fold steps!
More secrets await those whose faith proves worthy of the Elder Gods….
