Bethesda just confirmed Quake remaster and it's out now
By Ray Ampoloquio August 19, 2021
You know what they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Or, in the video game industry, don't reboot it. Instead, remaster it, so players can enjoy it in 4K resolution and 120 frames per second.
This is exactly what Bethesda did with the Quake remaster announcement.
The Quake remaster is exactly what the name suggests - a remaster of the original Quake game from 1996.
The remastered version of the classic first-person shooter supports up to 4K resolution and widescreen.
Quake remaster also comes with enhanced models, anti-aliasing, dynamic lighting, and depth of field changes, among others.
Bethesda also included the original soundtrack from Nine Inch Nails' frontman Trent Reznor to complete the package.
Quake remaster supports crossplay across all platforms for its 4-player online multiplayer with local split-screen available as well.
On top of all of this, the Quake remaster also includes every original expansion pack released for the game.
Perhaps the best part about Bethesda's announcement at QuakeCon 2021 is that the Quake remaster isn't just coming soon - the game is already out.
For those who are interested, the enhanced version of Quake is available for purchase on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and the Nintendo Switch.
If you have Xbox Game Pass then you've got twice as much reason to celebrate too, it's included in your subscription and able to be downloaded instantly.
Bethesda added that a dedicated PS5 and Xbox Series X version is coming soon with support for 4K resolution and 120 frames per second.
Because this year is Quake's 25th anniversary, Bethesda might still have something else up its sleeve.
