Quake II is now available on Xbox Series XlS, PC, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Game Pass, Xbox Game Pass and Steam. If you aren’t a subscriber to Game Pass the game will cost $9.99 USD. This came sooner than we thought as the expectation was an announcement and release would be August 11.
This Quake II is not deemed to be a Remaster, but instead they say its “an enhanced and complete version” of the original game from over 25 years ago.
Developed by id Software in 1997, Quake II is a critically acclaimed first-person shooter and sequel to Quake that deviates from the original by introducing an entirely new science fiction narrative and setting.
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.
Quake II also supports online multiplayer, co- op cross-play and it’s listed as a 4K Ultra HD title. All of the original mission packs are included with the release of Quake II as well.
