Xbox Game Pass adds 3 Quake games, including the new remaster
Xbox Game Pass now offers three Quake games: Quake, Quake 2 and Quake3 Arena. Microsoft announced the additions Thursday, along with the launch of QuakeCon 2021. This announcement came shortly after id Software released a remastered Quake.
Quake’s enhanced version can be downloaded on Xbox consoles and Windows PC via Xbox Game Pass. Quake 2: Arena and Quake3: Arena is available for Windows PC users through the subscription service. Quake 2 has not been remastered. Quake 2 RTX is a free download that allows players to enjoy the game in a prettier version.
Bethesda Software’s Quake remastered version of the 25-year old game has 4K resolution support and cross-platform play. It also features enhanced visuals and a new expansion pack by MachineGames Wolfenstein developer MachineGames. You can also get it on your own on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 (and PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility), as well as Windows PC.
These three Quake titles join an impressive lineup of more than 30 Bethesda Softworks titles. Many of these titles were added to Xbox Game Pass after Microsoft acquired Bethesda.
