If you buy the game, you have everyone (ie all the champions).

If you don't buy the game, you can buy them individually for hard currency or temporarily unlock them with soft currency (via game play).

You can also earn/unlock them for free over time (ie game play).

@ SyncError: can you earn hard currency through game play too?

There is a hard currency you earn (game play) that can be used to permanently purchase things too.

Bethesda sent over a fact sheet for the Quake Champions game.
Not sure if eveyone saw it or not, so posting it here just in case.:

Play for Free… Or Upgrade to the Champions Pack

Quake Champions will be available for free to all PC players, with all maps, modes, and weapons included, as well as a starter Champion.
Additional Champions will be available for purchase if players want to try out new abilities and attributes.
Players can also choose the Champions Pack, a for-purchase version that will include the full roster of Champions and additional, exclusive bonuses.
Free players can upgrade to the Champions Pack at any time.
Both free and paid players will be able to play all modes and maps, uniting paid and free players in a single, endless test of skill.

Your Champion, Your Style

Players can upgrade and customize armor appearance, vanity items, weapons, and more.
These add-ons will come in Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Epic forms through a loot box-style system.
These boxes will be earned by leveling up, purchased using in-game currency that is rewarded through conquests, or purchasing through the in-game store for money.

Quake Champions is due for release this year (2017) on PC,

Welp, some dude at reddit posted his interpretation - which may or may not be all legit, but it is interesting.

-start-

Cash - Used to buy the champions and skins

Hard currency - Slow to earn, but rewards are forever

Soft currency - Fast to earn, but rewards aren't permanent

The advantage of buying hard is that if you return 3 months later, everything is still unlocked.
If you buy soft, you will need to unlock again.

-end-
