Is Quake II Remastered going to be announced at this year’s Quakecon event? It sure looks like it, as South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee has published its rating for exactly that, with a new entry going up today that teases an FPS game with “excessive expression of violence,” not to mention blood and body damage, both of which are “frequently expressed in the process of fighting using weapons.” Today’s news of Quake II Remastered comes at the relevant time, with June 22, 1996, being the original Quake’s release date, and while it isn’t clear what upgrades Quake II Remastered will bring, they will presumably fall along the lines of what the Quake remaster, which released in August 2021, had received.

From a Bethesda post:

Updated for modern platforms, this version of Quake features up to 4K resolution and widescreen support on compatible platforms, enhanced models, dynamic lighting, anti-aliasing, depth of field and more, bringing the shooter and both its expansions to a new generation of players.

With the power of Add-ons, players will have tons of free levels to play, with the re-release receiving post-launch support for the best community-made content.

Quake’s legacy in defining multiplayer gaming is also preserved, with the re-release supporting local or online co-op for up to four players across both its single-player campaign, original expansions and even two campaign add-ons created by the award-winning team at MachineGames, developers of Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

Of course, players ready to go head-to-head can bring their skills to Quake’s arenas, battling with up to eight players with cross-platform support, custom matches and even dedicated servers for online matchmaking.
