Rumoured Quake remaster gets an ESRB rating
With QuakeCon around the corner, an message could be imminent
A elucidation of Quake has been rated by the ESRB amid rumours of an upcoming remaster.
A new record on the USA’s Entertainment Software Rating Board attaches a Mature 17+ row to a quarry simply called ‘Quake’, an FPS reportedly heading to PC and consoles.
Bethesda is yet to officially announce a new interpretation of the classic shooter, but this isn’t the first shred we’ve had regarding an imminent new Quake experience. Last week, the QuakeCon 2021 calendar revealed the life of a ‘Let’s Talk Quake’ subroutine at the tradition in which Jerk Gustafsson, developer at Wolfenstein business MachineGames, would “discuss the additional contents MachineGames have contributed to this revitalized edition.” That files was swiftly removed from the demand description but ignited rumors roughly an upcoming remaster.
Since then, however, there’s been another hint, as SteamDB (via VG247) picked up two updates to the original meaning of Quake, which is available on Valve’s PC platform. A new beta branch has been added to the game, as well as a 64-bit executable. That could mean visual updates, but it could also be fraction of the puzzle around a new Quake experience.
Quake is probably not in files for the same overhaul afforded to Doom in recent days – Bethesda is unlikely to drop a whole new FPS with almost zeros fanfare, but with updates to the original game, an ESRB rating, and QuakeCon kicking off later today, a remastered or enhanced plagiarism could be about to arrive very soon.
