Quake 5 might return to its roots


John Carmack, the boss of id Software, recently spouted out some good news for fans of the original Quake. The long time running series might be taking a trip back to its roots – if the game does come into fruition. According to a statement he recently made to Eurogamer, he said: “We are at least tossing around the possibilities of going back to the bizarre, mixed up Cthulhu-ish Quake 1 world and rebooting that direction. We think that would be a more interesting direction than doing more Strogg stuff after Quake 4… But we could do something pretty grand like that, that still tweaks the memory right in all of those ways, but is actually cohesive and plays with all of the strengths of the level we’re at right now.”

I don’t know about you guys, but if I were to pick a defining moment in my life as a gamer, it would be the first time I played Quake. Discovering that you could use the mouse together with the keyboard forever changed the way I played First Person Shooters for years to come. With such fond memories of spending hours shooting up demons and looking for color coded keys on my computer, hearing news about Quake 5 returning to the whole “gothic” feel of the first game makes me quiver with anticipation. I know it’s not confirmation that the next Quake is on its way, but we can always dream right? Here’s to hoping it arrives (if at all) sooner than later.
