After 25 years, 1996’s Quake has received a major update which includes remastered graphics, a brand-new expansion, and more, and it’s completely free for existing PC owners.

Quake Remastered has also been released on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, with next-gen owners being able to play the game on their PS5 or Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility.

During Quakecon it was announced that the classic FPS title will be getting the remaster treatment, bringing better light, new models, updated maps, and a dynamic shadow system.

Quake Remastered also comes with many brand-new features including cross-play, dedicated servers for online death matches, free optional add-ons with the first being the Quake 64 soundtrack, as well as split-screen support for local death matches and co-op, with the option to add AI opponents too.

The game will also come with a brand-new expansion, offering plenty of new levels to really give you a reason to take the 25-year-old game out for another spin.

PC players who already own the game on Steam will receive the upgrade for free.

This game is $9.99 on Steam.
