Grab your gun and speed up your thumbs, because the myth is back with Quake Remastered. And we've got the Quake Remastered review for you. If we were to analyze the FPS genre and its great exponents throughout the history of the video game, the id Software title would be among the three chosen for its particular Olympus, along with Wolfenstein and Doom.

Released on June 22, 1996, and signed by already legendary figures such as John Romero and John Carmack, Quake quickly became a huge success. It was a turn of the screw for the first-person shooter genre, achieving its own identity and popularizing multiplayer.

Its intricate levels, this gothic atmosphere that drinks from H.P. Lovecraft, the iconic music of Trent Reznor, its revolutionary engine with acceleration and 3D rendering in real-time ... there were no few reasons for its importance. And, of course, Quake rose as a legend of the genre.

Of course, it would not take long for countless ports to arrive for consoles such as Nintendo 64 or Sega Saturn, in addition to an early sequel, Quake II, which gave greater weight to the narrative and the atmosphere of science fiction. For its part, the multiplayer revolution would come with Quake III Arena, in 1999.

Older PC gamers will longingly remember those afternoons and nights of glory playing Quake III Arena, which later made the leap to PS2 and Dreamcast with disparate sensations. In 2005 Quake IV would arrive, a Raven Software experience that collected the narrative witness of Quake II.

After several installments focused exclusively on the multiplayer variant (Enemy Territory: Quake Wars and Quake Champions), the saga needed a return in style, coinciding with its 25th anniversary... and here we have it. Quake Remastered is out now, ladies and gentlemen.

This Quake remastering is carried out by Nighdive Studios (System Shock Remake), and is now available for 9.99 euros (in digital format) for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. Bethesda has also revealed that it is working on native versions for PS5 and Xbox Series X | S.
