In case you forgot, the original Quake is available on PlayStation 4, complete with updated visuals, Trophies, new content, and all that good stuff. If you like your first person shooters retro-flavoured, it's a great option, and now, Bethesda has made it an even more interesting package with the release of a PS5 version.
Yes, the 25-year-old Quake is now available on PS5. This port of the antiquated experience sports some extra bells and whistles. It'll run at full 4K resolution, supports 120 frames-per-second if you have the right display, and takes advantage of the DualSense's adaptive triggers and speaker.
The best news is that owners of the PS4 version can claim the PS5 upgrade free of charge. If you have the game on Sony's last system, you technically already own the PS5 one as well — just head to the PS Store and download it on your new console.
Quake is £7.99/$9.99, and for that you get both versions of the game, which isn't half bad, is it? Will you be playing this old-school shooter on PS5? Frag some monsters in the comments section below.
Bethesda you say, huh.
I hope bethesda remaster the second quake too
Great news! Now that the native PS5 release is out, I’ll be picking Quake up at my earliest opportunity. Never played the original and the remaster looks cool. Plus, utilised DualSense features are always a win.
I consider every Bethesda release on PS a bonus at this stage. Got a decent selection of new and legacy content. More than I expected we would.
120FPS mode? I gotta buy this and give it a go.
Stone cold classic!!
Still has Quake 64 (n64 version) buried in there too for novelty sake, as well as 2 new levels built by Machine Games (chaps behind modern Wolfenstein).
Bit of a shame there’s no ray-tracing. Quake 2 looks brilliant with ray-tracing.
Heads up. PS4 save data will not transfer to the PS5 version.
Typical Microsoft. I bought this in 1996 for Windows 95. Why aren’t I eligible for a free upgrade to the PS5 version? I knew it would be the end the moment they got their grubby paws on Bethesda.
@Futureshark Note that it's not the "pure" N64 rom included, but rather a port of Quake 64 running in this modern engine. The "Quake 64" add-on has the levels and pared-back level geometry of the N64 version, and the lower-res textures + filtering and scan lines. However, you can still apply to it all of the graphical upgrades available in Bethesda's latest version of Quake, like upgraded enemy models or dynamic lighting/shadows, if desired. While it's not the actual N64 rom, it's still a very cool inclusion that I appreciate, and one that I'm playing through alongside some of the other level sets/expansions.
Also, Machine Games provides 2 expansions here, not just levels. Several levels in each expansion.
@SoulChimera I also just put my Sega Saturn Quake disc into my PS5 and it didn't run or even give me the PS4 version for free. What IS the world coming to?
@Barryburton97 At least you have a PS5 to fruitlessly slot your Saturn Quake disc into. I also have Quake for Saturn, but still no luck getting a PS5, with optical drive or no.
Did anybody managed to get 120 fps on PS5?
I have all the right settings in console (other games like Doom Eternal are working). There is no "120 fps" setting in Quake...
Thanks for your help.
