without RTX, But with a lot of other modern bonuses: the legendary 1996 action game gets its own updated edition available for purchase right now
Company Bethesda Provided fans with a rather interesting surprise as part of the traditional Quakecon event for this year - a remake and improved version of the classic action game that celebrated its 25th birthday (!) About two months ago, and now proves its gameplay is still as fun, challenging and relevant as it was in the mid-XNUMXs.
The modern Quake, which continues to be called simply Quake (with the addition in parentheses incidentally with the word Enhanced that appears in some descriptions on the web), was launched immediately for PCs, previous and new generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony and also for the Nintendo Switch - with support Resolutions of up to 4k With display speeds of up to 60 frames per second on supported platforms, support for wide resolutions, enhancements to models and lighting techniques and even support for online joint play of up to four players together on a split screen and up to eight players together online.

For dessert, the fresh Quake includes no less than four expansion packs with dozens of additional challenging stages beyond those that were part of the original - a pair of expansion packs launched in the 20s (Scourge of Armagon and Dissolution of Eternity), another expansion pack called Dimension of the Past launched about five years ago Years to just the game's XNUMXth birthday and an entirely new package called Dimension of the Machine created for the current launch. It is worth noting that the two latest expansions have been developed by the staff of Studio MachineGames, who are also responsible for the revival of the Wolfenstein series in recent years.
Are you enthusiastic and want to try it for yourself? The new Quake is available for purchase on Steam (And on many other platforms, of course) for a price of 40 shekels - and if you happen to have a subscription Xbox Game Pass is active in Microsoft Office You can play it without paying any extra, as a welcome by-product of the acquisition of the parent company that owns the rights to ZeniMax by the technology giant earlier this year.
On this occasion, we will also note that the Quake 2 Now available on Steam for only NIS 5.99 - And add for it the revolutionary RTX version for free Launched in 2019 with support for real-time tracking of rays in modern video cards.
