There is good news for PC customers, who can download a plethora of games for free.
To celebrate the start of QuakeCon, fans can download Quake 2 RTX for free on GoG.
Quake II RTX features new traced visual effects, as well as improved texturing and full ray tracing.
It is also said to contain dozens of other changes and improvements, which would result in an experience that rivals games made today.
“Shortly after landing on an alien surface, you learn that hundreds of your men have been reduced to a few,” the official description reads.
“Now you must fight your way through heavily fortified military installations, lower the city’s defenses and stop the enemy war machine. Only then will the fate of mankind be known.”
As a reminder, QuakeCon takes place from August 19 to the evening of August 21.
A new Quake game would be announced at the event, which should go well with your new copy of Quake 2.
PC owners can also grab some free games from the Epic Games Store.
As part of Epic’s ongoing battle against Steam, the platform owner is giving away free games every week.
From 4 p.m. BST on August 19 until the same time on August 26, fans can download the 3D platformer Yooka-Laylee, as well as the roguelike Void Bas *** ds in first person.
All you need to download the games is an active Epic Games account. Just log in and they are yours forever.
While Yooka-Laylee is arguably the most prominent free-to-play game, Void Bas *** ds is the best.
“Forget everything you know about first person shooters: Void Bas *** ds asks you to take matters into your own hands, not just point your gun and shoot,” the official description reads. .
“Your task is to lead the Void Shallows out of the Sargasso Nebula. You make the decisions: where to go, what to do and who to fight. And then you have to implement this strategy in front of strange and terrible enemies.
“Aboard abandoned spaceships, you’ll plan your mission, taking note of the ship’s configuration, the dangers and enemies you might encounter, and the terminals and other ship systems you can use to your advantage. “
Once you’ve attacked the ships, you’ll need to plan your next move, being careful not to run out of fuel or health.
