The QuakeCon 2020 has come laden with gifts, and after the cosmetic items Fallout 76, the next thing can take you by the face and keep it forever a copy of the legendary game Quake.

Free game offers are becoming more and more common, especially on PC platforms. Various distributors and digital game stores, such as Steam, Epic Games Store, Uplay, and GOG, have given away titles in recent weeks.

Now it is the turn of Bethesda. It is a company that, through its own store, is giving away Quake and Quake 2.

These two classic shooters from the 90s can be yours. It is because of the generous people who were watching QuakeCon 2020, the convention based around the games of this company (among the best known is Skyrim, Dishonored, and the Fallout saga).

Why Did Bethesda Make it Free?

They had announced that they would only give the first one, but since people had donated $10,000 during the event, they also decided to give away Quake 2.

To get these two games, we only have to download the Bethesda launcher through this link. Once we have the application on our computer, we just need to open it and log in.

Otherwise, we can create an account if we don’t have one yet. As long as we do it today, both games will be available on our account.

The best thing about this is that by getting the original Quake 2, we can upgrade it to the Quake 2 RTX version free of charge. This technology came out recently.

It allows us to enjoy the ray-tracing technology in the game, which makes it much more attractive and visually fluid. As for QuakeCon, this is the last day, and there are still some surprises the company would reveal.

We also remind you that through GOG, you can also get up to 70% discount on the vast majority of titles that have been published by Bethesda Softworks for over three decades. On this list is the entire saga of The Elder Scrolls, DOOM, Wolfenstein, and much more.

What Quake Has to Offer

Although it did not sit particularly well on the visual level, there are some spectacular aspects here. Quake is about to turn 25 years old (it was released in 1996), but it’s still played today. The game is still one of our favorite FPS and a great game that you should try.

Doing so is as easy as logging into the Bethesda launcher for PC. If you don’t have it on your computer, downloading it and logging in with your account is all you need to make it appear in your library.

Besides, during the next few days, you can also jump into the future to play its second installment. Quake 2 changes the medieval aesthetic for the spatial one, but it does so with an equally fantastic game that will soon be ours.

  1. Wow! Quake is a blast from the past. Never played it but always heard it was a great game. Now that Quake and Quake 2 are available for free, I think I’ll check this out. Thanks for passing on the good news Mr. Porter. You can never have too many great games (well, as long as you have enough hard drive space LOL).

  2. Hate I missed the free day for Quake and Quake 2. Maybe next time! If I sub to your newsletter would you post about it next time via email do you think?
