It has not been long since the original Quake got a remaster and while it was great to enjoy the old Quake all over again in a modern way, it was a bit disheartening to learn that the console versions of the game were not fully optimized. But all that changes thanks to the latest update that brings the game up to true “next-gen” standards.
The update allows the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions of the game to run the game at 120fps and at the same time outputting a resolution all the way up to 4K. A great new addition as well which really makes the game utilize some of the consoles unique services/technology is that the Xbox Series X/S version will have the Play Anywhere feature while the PS5 version gets DualSense Adaptive Trigger and integrated speaker support.
For those that have yet to get their copy of Quake for either console platform, they will be glad to know that the game is eligible for upgrading to their next-gen counterparts for free.
The remastered version of Quake is out now for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S consoles.
Quake Remastered was reviewed here on Sirus Gaming and was scored a 9.5/10. The reviewer, Srinivas Naidu, had this to say about the game, “Quake is a game with an overwhelming legacy, and playing this remaster makes one see why it got that; with its spectacular atmosphere, music, gunplay, and movement. Quake is a classic that still holds up and in terms of atmosphere. All its expansions feel like an extension of the game itself and are worth playing through. The remaster also has great additions with add-ons and online multiplayer which embraces and celebrates the legacy of the game. Quake still stands strong as a game which is worthy of every bit of its enduring legacy.”
