Enhanced version of Quake out now across all platforms

Posted on August 20, 2021

Announced during QuakeCon at Home which is taking place as we speak, and to celebrate of 25 years since its original release, an enhanced version of the original iconic shooter Quake is available now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and backward compatible on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. Additionally, native Xbox Series X|S and PS5 versions bringing native 4K at 120 FPS will be available soon as a free upgrade.

The enhanced version of Quake also comes with a brand new expansion, created by MachineGames. The upgrade will include “enhanced models, dynamic and colour lighting, anti-aliasing, depth of field, and the original soundtrack and theme song by Trent Reznor.” it’s worth noting that the upgrade will be free for those who already own Quake on Steam or Bethesda.net.

The newest version of Quake will also feature Online, Cross-play, & Local Multiplayer and co-op. “Fight through the dark fantasy base campaign and expansions in 4-player online or local split-screen co-op, and compete in pure, retro-style combat with support for 8-player (online) or 4-player (local split-screen) matches. Featuring cross-play between all platforms and dedicated server support for online matchmaking and peer-to-peer support for custom matches.”

The game appears to be a bit of a definitive edition, as it also comes with both original expansion packs: “The Scourge of Armagon” and “Dissolution of Eternity,” as well as two expansions developed by the award-winning team at MachineGames: “Dimension of the Past,” and the all-new “Dimension of the Machine.”

QuakeCon at Home is currently on, with a weekend full of streams, charity opportunities, giveaways, and more. You can catch all the action on Bethesda’s Twitch channel.

The enhanced version of the original Quake is available now across basically all platforms, so get stuck in and get your frag on.
