A Quake Remaster Looks To Be Coming To All Consoles

It’s been rumoured that some sort of new Quake project is set to be announced at Quakecon later this week, and the ESRB has all but confirmed it by rating Quake for all major consoles.

The entry was submitted to the ESRB by Bethesda and describes the first game in detail:

This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier that travels through time to stop an evil force from destroying humanity. Players traverse through maze-like medieval environments and use shotguns, nail guns, and grenade launchers to kill various enemies (e.g., zombies, demonic forces, scorpions, humans) in frenetic run-and-gun combat. Battles are accompanied by gunfire sounds, screams of pain, and large explosions. Large blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and several attack cause enemies to explode into bloody chunks. Some areas depict mutilated body parts on the ground or falling from ceilings.

The listing implies that the game would be coming to Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series S|X.

Adding more fuel to this juicy rumour, a new beta branch has also been added to the original game on Steam which could imply some new content is coming to that game in the form of enhancements or perhaps even a taste for a future product.

Two months ago, a mysterious new title was also rated by Bethesda in Australia, and some rumours even suggested that a brand new title could be coming in the future too.

The original Quake was markedly different from the others – employing a gothic medieval vibe that future games strayed further away from. It even has a score by Trent Reznor. Whew.

QuakeCon begins overnight and there is a whole panel dedicated to it by both iD and MachineGames, so we can expect to hear an update then.
