Earlier this week we shared a trailer for Quake 1.5 and today we are happy to report that its debut beta version is available for download. Quake 1.5 is a Darkplaces addon mod for the original Quake that utilizes Seven’s SMC 5.30 as a base and has been expanded to include new features such as weapons, gore, and enemies.
In addition to the new enemies in Quake 1.5, players can expect some new content as well. The existing boss fights have been redone and there are 2 new episode bosses with their own respective levels, as well as a well hidden secret level with an entrance hidden in one of the existing quake levels.
According to the modder, Quake 1.5 requires a 2017 build of Darkplaces (that you can download from here), and is not designed with RT world lighting in mind so performance in real-time mode may vary wildly.
Those interested can download Quake 1.5 from here. Bloodshot12 has also released a E1M2 hotfix for users getting stuck on exploding wall trap, and you’ll have to make sure “cl_particles_quake” is set to 0 in console in case the particles still look like classic Quake and there are no blood decals.
Have fun everyone!
