The PTS is a Public Test Server that many games come with. It is completely optional to be part of the PTS, and does require an additional download to take part of. The purpose of the PTS for us as Quake players is it allows us to preview upcoming skins, arenas, and gameplay changes in general before they are added to the Live | Main Game servers. It also doubles as bug testing. In fact all bugs, or issues in the PTS should be put in the official discord in the “public-test-server” channel. If you can you should try and find a buddy to test with. Two heads are better than one. You can find people to party with in the “party-finder” channel.
If you want to access, or rather download the PTS you can do this on the Steam client quite easily. Just to note though like other PTS downloads you are usually downloading the entire game plus the new additions, or changes. The PTS download for Quake Champions is currently just over 30 Gigabytes. Keep that in mind if you want to participate. Things that you accomplish in the PTS version DO NOT transfer over to the main game. That said you can also demo stuff in the PTS that you may not own yet in the main game.
Lastly, the PTS is not a representation of what will hit the Live servers at any time. As the values can be changed | reverted, or removed at any point during the PTS update period.
*When first launching the PTS your game may “compile” for a few minutes. Do not worry as this is completely normal.
In Steam just type “quake” in any way in your library search tab, and “Quake Champions PTS” will appear in the games folder below the search bar.
HAPPY FRAGGING FOLKS, AND WE SHALL SEE EACHOTHER IN THE ARENAS.
