QuakeCon 2023 is kicking off today, and with it came the announcement of a remastered version of Quake II. It arrives two years after the remastered version of the original Quake and it’s available now on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC for $9.99. Xbox Game Pass subscribers can also check it out as part of their subscription. But perhaps the best news is, if you already owned Quake II on the Microsoft Store, Steam, or GOG, the remaster version is available as a free update.

The remaster isn’t just a graphical glow-up. It adds cloud saves, 4K resolution, split-screen co-op (local and online) and multiplayer. The team also added an assortment of accessibility options to the game.

“Enjoy Quake II’s legendary gameplay, preserved and complete with the original soundtrack by Sonic Mayhem, now enhanced with widescreen support, restored content previously left on the cutting room floor, visual and performance upgrades to make every muzzle flash and gib-plosion pop on-screen and even new levels,” said Bethesda in a press release.

The remastered version includes the original Quake II campaign and both Mission Packs: The Reckoning and Ground Zero. It also has the previously Nintendo 64-exclusive Quake II 64 and the brand-new Call of the Machine episode from MachineGames.

You can learn more about the improvements and changes in the Quake II patch notes.
