A few days ago, we informed you about the possibility of Bethesda giving away for free Quake 2 during QuakeCon 2020. Bethesda promised to give away this Quake game once and if the livestream donations during QuakeCon 2020 hit the $10K goal. And we are happy to report that this goal has already been achieved.
What this basically means is that during this weekend, PC gamers will be able to download both Quake and Quake 2. In order to acquire your free copies, you’ll have to log into your Bethesda.net account.
Once you acquire your free copy of Quake, you can also download some mods for it. For instance, Slayer’s Testaments is a Doom Eternal mod for Quake. Arcane Dimensions HD is an unofficial expansion, featuring 22 new levels. There is also an AI-enhanced HD Texture Pack for this shooter, as well as vkQuake 1.0; a Quake 1 port using the Vulkan API.
Now what’s really interesting about Quake 2 is that RTX owners will be able to use it in order to unlock the full version of Quake 2 RTX. As such, they’ll be able to enjoy full path/ray tracing effects. And, as we’ve already reported, Quake 2 RTX looks absolutely stunning. There are also some other mods for Quake 2, however, nothing can come close – at least for now – to Quake 2 RTX.
