Quake gets Rated by ESRB for cross-gen consoles and PC
On the website of ESRB, the most acclaimed title of the development studio id Software Quake has been officially rated “Mature 17+” for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
We can also find a description of the title itself in the ESRB rating, which clearly states that it will be a new version of Quake 1, and not a reboot of the game. Check the synopsis of Quake below.
“This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier that travels through time to stop an evil force from destroying humanity. Players traverse through maze-like medieval enviornments and use shotguns, nail guns, and grenade launchers to kill various enemies (e.g., zombies, demonic forces, scorpions, humans) in frenetic run-and-gun combat. Battles are accompanied by gunfire sounds, screams of pain, and large explosions. Large blood-splatter effects occur frequently, and several attack cause enemies to explode into bloody chunks. Some areas depict mutilated body parts on the ground or falling from ceilings.”
During the start of this month, it was already known that QuakeCon 2021 will be hosted, “celebrating the 25 years of Quake with id Software and MachineGames.” It was also revealed in a leak that the studio could reveal “Quake Revitalised Edition” during the same event.
Now it only remains to be seen when this first version of Quake will be announced and given a release date.
