I was only a baby when Quake released – here’s me playing the modern re-release
Quake is a classic of the FPS genre, at least I’m told. I’m going to be honest with you and say this is not a game that I am familiar with, in part because I was only having a baby when this game came out in 1996.
I’m a huge FPS fan, however, these days I spend a lot of hours on Apex Legends, and recently really enjoyed my time playing the Splitgate beta. Tom told me to get on Quale and try it out like someone who isn’t blinded by nostalgia. So that’s what I did.
The video above shows me playing and reacting to the brand new version of Quake that was dropped at QuakeCon earlier this week. What do I think about it? Well watch the video to find out.
Have you taken a look at the slightly revamped version of Quake? It’s available now on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Switch, and PC, so there are plenty of options. Plus, it’s on Game Pass for Xbox and PC which is good.
While they aren’t improved by any means, Quake 2 and Quake 3 Arena are also on Game Pass for PC, which are also worth a look if you haven’t tried them out yet. The series has gradually shifted towards multiplayer, with Quake 3 being built entirely around competitive play.
Please let us know what you think of the makeover Quake by posting in the comments section below. Do you think modern retro shooters have now passed him or is he still the king?
