The original Quake video game was a very forward-looking first-person shooter (FPS) that set an example for many of the best FPS games today. Today, at the QuakeCon virtual event, id Software released an update of its legendary shooting game, which includes a remake of the original Quake, support for 4K resolution, enhanced visual effects, and more.
The first part of the Quake game series came out in 1996, exactly 25 years ago, when id Software and GT Interactive collaborated to release one of the most disruptive game series ever. The game implemented new technologies such as 3D acceleration (at the time) through OpenGL, and later brought support for multiplayer games.
At today’s virtual QuakeCon conference, id Software and Machine Games collaborated to develop a remake of Quake, providing various visual improvements for nostalgic players.
The game remains unchanged. It includes all the classic explorations of the maze-like medieval environment, including the use of different weapon combinations to fight monsters. This means that the game still retains its core; however, the visual effects need to be overhauled. The game now supports 4K displays with widescreen options, new expansion packs, and online multiplayer gaming experience. You can check out the video trailer below to see what all the fuss is about.
The newly remade game can be purchased for $9.99. It can also be used on Steam on PC, game consoles including Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and 5, and the most famous Nintendo Switch. All players who already own the game can upgrade for free and get enhanced visual effects. id Software provides cross-play options for everyone. This means that regardless of whether you are using a PC or a game console, you can meet in an online match and try who is better in this retro shooting game.Check This official FAQ to know more information.
