It continues to be a busy world for Quake within the previous week. Not just were the World Championships a significant success, but Quakecon at home has also celebrated these traditional FPS titles by raising more than $30,000 for charity.
As a thankyou, the Quake 2 is currently available from the Bethesda Launcher within the following 72 hours. This free deal began at 12 pm ET, or 4 pm GMT. Quake 3, the next in the series, are also free for a limited time from Monday 17th August.

Quake 1 had been available during Quakecon, and because of the achievement of the charitable event, Bethesda is now offering access to these two names. You can no longer get Quake 1 at no cost.
Quake 2 was originally released in 1997. Developed by identification Software and released by Activision, the game wasn’t really a direct sequel to the previous Quake game. It’s famous for its fast-paced activity and 1v1 arena multiplayer style which created the foundation of a long and successful eSports scene that lasts to this day.
Alongside the base game, there are 3 large expansion packs which were afterwards collected into combo packs. These include different single-player assignments and campaign modes in addition to online maps, especially for the favorite FFA deathmatch mode.
At the time it was widely believed to be the best FPS on the market. Multiple reviewers claimed that no match came close to dethroning the Quake show as the overriding games in the genre. To this day, Quake 2 is considered by many to be among the greatest shooters ever made.
From Monday, Quake 3 are also available at no cost on the Bethesda Launcher. Quake 3 was the Quake game that wanted to market its online mode. It provided no singleplayer content and concentrated solely on the multiplayer, making the game its name Quake 3 Arena.
The game is still enjoyable before today, even though its mechanisms were arguably enhanced by the launch of Unreal Tournament from Epic Games in 2002. Quake 3 remains a game to be jumped into and appreciated with a few friends, particularly considered the sport is absolutely free of August 17th for a limited time.
Both Quake 2 and Quake 3 have been made free for a limited time over this weekend. All you will need to do is download the Bethesda Launcher to maintain the games at no cost.
