"id Software‘s Quake has been officially rated ‘Mature 17+’ on the ESRB website for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

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.”

I'd absolutely love to see remasters of the first two Quake games that are similar to the Doom remasters from last year, preferably with similar support for mods like Doom and Doom II had. I wonder if we'll get to see much of the game at QuakeCon.
Really happy about this and also the recently announced Exhumed remaster.

I hope these are just remasters and not remakes. And I truly hope they have the rights to keep the NIN soundtrack, otherwise it's a no from me. Quake is like my second favourite videogame ever.

I loved the gothic atmosphere and design of the first Quake and always found the change from demons to aliens in Quake II and 4 to be jarring. Quake II was good but I felt it lacked the moody feel and darkness of the first game and was more generic in terms of design and concept, even for its time.

So, this is a remaster of the first Quake?

Please.
Here's hoping so.

Imagine if they'd just gone over to github, downloaded the Darkplaces engine, and compiled that, though? :|

Give me a drop at the conference or MEH.

I hope it's below $30 CND, otherwise LOL.

Possibly it'll be a day one Gamepass too though, tha'd be good.

My guess it's just going to be a source port of the game + 2 expansions with the episode MachineGames did for the 20th anniversary included. The guy that did the Vulkan port of Quake actually works at id Software so.

It’s going to need some serious effort put into controller support. That said I didn’t know about this and am super excited hopefully they can get the nine inch nails soundtrack.

They were already in development before the buyout. But the agendas prevented you both from considering that.
Making a joke is having an agenda now? Honestly, this says more about you.

We''re gonna see it today, and I'm SO damn hyped. Be it a decent graphical increase, or just Quake 1 with a fancy sheen over it. I'm more than fine either way and super stoked to see it.

It's coming to Switch as well, but I guess thats not the console war ammo you're looking for.

A portable console port isn't a issue.

It coming to Playstation is a issue and if the excuse is that it was in development then expect others to come as well.

Microsofts CFO already said games would show up first or best on xbox. Phil Spencer said legacy titles will still be multiplatform. My guess is Red Fall and starfield will be timed exclusives maybe for a year or 2 before we start to hear rumors swirling of ps5 ports. Phil spencer was recently on an ign podcast and the host asked him if the new elder scrolls will be exclusive, and phils answer was never shown.

Looking forward to playing this again with (hopefully) slightly upgraded graphics. They should put Quake II in the same pack though I think.

So people really do still have hope for this? Enjoy the ride then. Starfield and the new Elder Scrolls and Red Fall will never go to Playstation. The fact this game is available to so many platforms, even last gen xbox and playstation, should already tell you everything you need to know.

This is the "and there may be some legacy things that we'll go do" part of what Phil Spencer said and I also expect MMOs to make the crossover.

I personally don't care either way but I was told by xbox fans that NO Bethesda games will come to Sony platforms.... they are even giving this game a ps5 version....
