As rumored a couple of months ago, Quake II has in fact been remastered for current generation consoles, with physical editions also incoming.
You can finally put your Nintendo 64 in the attic, and slap a brand new copy of Quake II on your current gen Xbox, Playstation or Nintendo Switch.
We don’t actually recommend retiring your N64, it just sounded nice for the article.
But seriously though…
We all kind of knew this was coming. But now that it’s real, retro gaming fans are dashing to their favorite eStore to grab the enhanced Quake II right now.
The newly remastered Quake II from Nightdive and id Software features a bunch of visual and performance upgrades.
Models, textures, animations and AI have all been upgraded. As well as a bunch of modern enhanced visual elements, such as dynamic lighting and depth of field effects.
And the game now runs at a gorgeous 4K output in widescreen format.
The new definitive collection also includes the “The Reckoning” and “Ground Zero” DLC. As well as a brand new DLC created by Machine Games called “Call of the Machine”.
Perhaps the most exciting thing is that this brand new iteration of Quake II also includes online and local multiplayer, as well as cross-play between console families.
Exactly what you’d hope for from one of the most beloved multiplayer titles in video game history.
There are several options available to get your copy of Quake II, both digital and physical.
