Bethesda has revealed that a new version of the classic Quake game will be presented at QuakeCon 2021. This “revitalized” version of Quake is developed by MachineGames and id Software, and will feature additional content.
As the official schedule of QuakeCon 2021 states:
“Quake is back. In this special stream, John Linneman from Digital Foundry talks to Jerk Gustafsson of Machine Games about the title’s iconic legacy and what it meant to both of them. The pair will also discuss the additional content Machine Games have contributed to this revitalized edition.”
From the sounds of it, this new version of Quake will be a remaster and not a reboot or a remake. Or at least that’s what the description hints at.
Personally, I just hope that this revitalized edition of Quake is not a simple re-release with some new content. Since we’ve already gotten Quake 2 RTX, MachineGames and id Software should at least implement full ray/path tracing effects to it.
Bethesda will present this new version of Quake on August 20th.
Stay tuned for more!
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
