Quake is a very fast-paced first person shooter video game based on the ID Software product line of software. It was released in 1996 and is the first major game in the Quake series. In the game, players have to find their way throughout different medieval settings, fighting a whole variety of enemies using a wide variety of weapons. The game is very fun and is one of the best-selling games of all time.
With the release of the improved versions of Quake, there have been several modifications and improvements made to the original game, which has made them even more enjoyable to play. However, one of the most significant additions that the later versions of the game brought was the feature of fully 3D graphics with a beautiful new world that was enhanced by the introduction of realistic sound effects. Now, the multiplayer mode in Quake is also much more advanced than ever, allowing players to battle it out with hundreds of other players for the ultimate thrill of a fully 3D first-person shooter game.
