The Quake Remaster Is Out Right Now And Includes Enhanced Graphics And New Content

As reported earlier today, Quake is now available for all major consoles to celebrate the series 25th anniversary.

The remaster boasts a whole bunch of visual improvements – including support for widescreen and resolutions up to 4K and framerates of up to 120FPS. There’s a new lighting engine, depth of field effects, and anti-aliasing not seen in the original too.

As for the content – it’s all here. The entirety of the original game and expansions are here as well as a brand new expansion developed by MachineGames called Dimension of The Machine.

Given licensing issues, there was concern as to whether the Trent Reznor-made soundtrack would be included or not. But it’s here in all its glory.

The campaign and its expansions can also be played with up to four players either online or offline. The multiplayer modes can be played with up to eight players online or four players in local split-screen.

There’s even dedicated server support for online match-making and peer-to-peer support for custom matches. All online modes support crossplay.

There’s even mod support – and Quake 64 is included in this package as a separate mod. This version includes tweaks to the level design and a different soundtrack. The developers promise more fan-made and official mods will be coming soon.

The Quake remaster will set you back $14.95 and is available right now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

The game is included with Xbox Game Pass – and if you’re on PC it looks as if Quake II and Quake III Arena will be on Game Pass for PC later today.
