A Quake 2 Remastered rating has emerged online for the first time, confirming the game’s existence ahead of the QuakeCon 2023 event. South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee has rated the entry ahead of its possible appearance at the event. It is exactly what happened with the original Quake Remastered, with it getting rated ahead of its reveal in the QuakeCon 2023 event.

The title has been rated “not available for youth” since it features a detailed depiction of violence, blood, mutilation, and more. In other words, any person below the age of 18 is not eligible to play the gory and visceral experience.

The official rating in the Korean region implies that an official reveal could just be on the horizon, and the awaited QuakeCon 2023 event would be the perfect chance to showcase the project. The event would take place between August 10 and August 13 this year, causing excitement among the fans. A peculiar detail about the new Quake 2 rating is how only the PC platform is listed in it, which is unlike the original Quake Remastered.

The remaster of the original Quake was released on all the consoles at the time, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Nintendo Switch. It is likely that Quake 2 Remastered first release on PC only, following other consoles after a while. Judging by the first remastered project, we can also anticipate receiving 60 FPS and the beautifully compelling expansion packs that are a cherry on top.

All in all, this is not the first Quake 2 remastered project, as NVIDIA’s Lightspeed Studios released a cutting-edge version with real-time ray-tracing visuals. The 1997 classic was reimagined with global lighting effects, including realistic reflections, ambient occlusion, and global illumination. The project is available on Steam or via NVIDIA’s website.

Id Software’s Quake franchise has thrived over the earlier years in FPS gaming, defining standards and inspiring a new age of dark-styled fantasy FPS entries. The company has been busy hiring for a potential DOOM or a Quake Reboot title last year, with a qualification seeking “In-depth knowledge of recent id games, including DOOM (2016) and DOOM Eternal.” The job listings could possibly be related to the rated Quake 2 Remastered project.

The new remaster for the second Quake would be the perfect ode to the gaming community and the series, giving many a chance to revisit the enthralling and nostalgic venture once more. We can expect excellent quality going by the original Quake Remastered release. It is unlikely that the rating is a mistake, but we still suggest everyone take it with a grain of salt until the official announcement.
