Quake 2 Remastered Rated South Korea Bethesda

Quake 2 Remaster Will Be Announced at QuakeCon – Report

Back in June, South Korea’s ratings board revealed that a remaster of Quake 2, the classic arena first-person shooter from id Software, is on its way. A new reliable source has come forward to claim that fans can expect the announcement – and potentially a shadow drop – to happen at QuakeCon this year.

According to leaker billbil-kun, who is known for leaking the PlayStation Plus line-up every month, the remaster or enhanced version of Quake 2 will be announced at QuakeCon, which is set to run from 10-14 August 2023. Billbil-kun also claims that it will be both announced and released on 11 August for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Nintendo Switch. The leaker stated that they’re unsure of it will be called “Remastered” or “Enhanced” yet.

This shouldn’t be confused with Quake 2 RTX, the enhanced ray tracing-enabled version of the game that was released by Nvidia back in 2019. That version still looks incredible and we hope that this latest enhanced version capitalises on the awesome visual improvements too.

It’s unclear if Wolfenstein developer MachineGames will be adding any new content to this Quake 2 remaster as well. The developer previously added new content to the first Quake remaster (or Quake Enhanced) which contained new maps and levels.

The story description of Quake 2 reads:

“Mankind is at war with the Strogg, a hostile alien race planning an invasion of Earth. To prevent the invasion, humanity launched a preemptive strike on the Strogg homeworld…it failed, but you survived. Outnumbered and outgunned, fight your way through fortified military installations and shut down the enemy’s war machine. Only then will the fate of humanity be known.”

At this rate, it looks like fans will be getting several Quake remasters that hopefully encompasses the full series all the way until Quake 4.

The first enhanced Quake is currently available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC.
