Publisher Bethesda has released an improved version of the game in celebration of Quake’s 25th anniversary. The game will receive support for 4k and widescreen, among other graphic improvements. There will also be a version for current-gen consoles.
The improved Quake version will include upgraded models, dynamic lighting, anti-aliasing and depth of field. Bethesda also talks about support for Add-ons, which means that there are several free levels to download. The game will carry the original storyline and previously released expansions. In addition, MachineGames, the developer of Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, has developed two new campaign add-ons.
The new Quake game will also get multiplayer. For example, the missions from the storyline can be played via local or online co-op with up to three other players. Gamers can also play against each other with up to eight people. The improved Quake version supports cross platform, custom matches and dedicated servers.
The game is now available for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game is also included in the Xbox Game Pass and is backward compatible with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles. The game costs ten euros, although the improved version is free for people who have Quake on Steam or Bethesda.net. “Soon” will also be a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series version. These support 4k at 120fps.
