A few days ago, a schedule for Bethesda’s QuakeCon 2021 seemingly hinted at the company’s plans to launch a possible Quake remaster. The schedule was later edited where the mention of the game was removed. However, it turns out that the speculators had it right because Bethesda has since officially announced a remaster of the game.
Simply titled Quake, keeping true to the original game, the game will be remastered where it will now support 4K resolution along with enhanced visuals. For the most part it actually still looks a lot like the original, but less grainy and slightly more polished. That’s not a bad thing because there is that old school charm.
The remaster of the game will also feature support for cross-platform play, and speaking of which, it will be available on PC as well as consoles. This includes the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One, and will also be backwards compatible with the PS5 and Xbox Series X. There will also be a brand new expansion pack by Wolfenstein developer MachineGames.
According to Bethesda, gamers who bought Quake on Steam or through the Bethesda Launcher will automatically get the new version for free, if not you’ll be able to pick up a copy for $10.
