Game pass

‘Quake’ has just been added to Xbox Game Pass with major improvements

earthquake came out the same year I started grade 10, 1996.

It was a big step forward towards the first-person shooter genre, a genre I had cut my teeth with. Wolfenstein 3D and LOSS. Fast-paced and exciting shooting game. A fantastic and dark world. Demons galore and a grand arsenal that was to die for.

Now the game is back in enhanced form, released yesterday on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch and backward compatible on Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5.

Here is what is new in the enhanced edition of idSoftware:


  • Resolutions up to 4K and wide screen support.
  • Improved models, dynamic lighting and color.
  • Anti-aliasing, depth of field.
  • The soundtrack and theme song by Trent Reznor.

Online, Cross-Play & Local MP and Co-OP

  • Cooperation with 4 players online or locally on split screen
  • 8 Player Online PvP Multiplayer
  • 4-player split-screen PvP multiplayer
  • Cross play between all platforms.
  • Dedicated server support for online matchmaking and peer-to-peer support for personalized matches

Original and new extensions included

  • The Scourge of Armagon expansion pack (original)
  • The Dissolution of Eternity expansion pack (original)
  • MachineGames Dimensions of the Past expansion
  • All New Machine Dimensions from MachineGames

If you have Xbox Game Pass, it’s all free. If you own Quake on Steam, you can also upgrade to the upgraded version for free.

I know people are complaining about reboots and remakes, but I would really like to see earthquake given the TLC that the LOSS the franchise has been granted. LOSS and Eternal DOOM are two fantastic games. New Wolfenstein the games are more random but still pretty awesome. No reason why earthquake I can’t go back, but I will have fun trying this old classic after so many years.
