Quake’s enhanced edition gets a free next-gen update, available now

Bethesda has announced it’s released a new free next-gen update for the recently enhanced versions of 1996 FPS, Quake.

As per the announcement, the update adds a couple of features for those playing on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. Namely, that of support for a 4K maximum resolution and 120FPS framerate. The Xbox side also gets Play Anywhere support, meaning you can transfer progress from console to PC. The PlayStation 5 meanwhile gets DualSense Adaptive Trigger and support for the controller’s integrated speaker.

It’s not the only addition made to the Quake enhanced edition since it launched back in August. Just last week, the first major patch landed and improved analogue stick input and several new control options. It even tweaked some of the older maps to solve 20+ year issues, and added bot support for the first time to others. Lovely stuff.

The Quake enhanced edition release comes a couple of years after Bethesda gave similar treatment to the classic Doom games. It includes both expansions and even a whole new campaign from Wolfenstein: The New Order studio MachineGames. The package also should include Quake 64, although the PlayStation 5 version is currently missing that. According to the FAQ, Bethesda apologise and say they “appreciate your patience while we work on resolving this issue”.

The Quake enhanced edition is available now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
