Quake ‘revitalized edition’ is imminent as game appears on ESRB rating site​

The Quakecon fan event starts today, and shockingly, it looks like Bethesda and id Software plan to reveal some news about the classic shooter. The Entertainment Software Rating Board in the United States has listed an M rating for Quake on its website this morning. In addition to warnings about “blood and gore” and “violence,” the ESRB notes the game is coming to Windows, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.

Rating Summary​

This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier that travels through time to stop an evil force from destroying humanity. Players traverse through maze-like medieval enviornments and use shotguns, nail guns, and grenade launchers to kill various enemies (e.g., zombies, demonic forces, scorpions, humans) in frenetic run-and-gun combat. Battles are accompanied by gunfire sounds, screams of pain, and large explosions. Large blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and several attack cause enemies to explode into bloody chunks. Some areas depict mutilated body parts on the ground or falling from ceilings.

Is it time yet? QC2021 starts 7pm (or is it 8pm?) for us afaik.

I remember trying to play Quake on a 486 DX2-66Mhz with 16mb of RAM. That... wasn't fun.

Now any potato can run this game. My washing machine could probably run it.

In all honesty vkquake looks and plays better. Finally, I don't get the excitement over yet another source port.

edit: it is kexengine and nblood all over again.

I see Quake 2 & 3 is on xbox game pass for PC

Anyone can verify if it's got the music and runs on latest PC's ? The old Q2 from steam needed a source port and music to be added in to really enjoy it on latest hardware.

Secondly, I figured out how to use RTX Q2 to run Q2 without yamagi and other source ports :) even if you do not have an RTX card ...

No music for q2 or 3 on xbgp pc, just installed and there is nothing during game play. I'll link you something for q2 in a bit.

edit: yes, I probably would have used VkQuake2 + restore music keeping it as close possible to the original rather than going overboard. For everything else if needed there is pcgamingwiki.
