Quake II RTX to Launch on Steam

Quake II RTX to Launch on Steam

NVIDIA plans to release their adaptation of Quake, called Quake II RTX, soon on Steam. The Quake II RTX will be free(in some cases) to play, full Quake II game, with additional features such as ray tracing. The game is using Vulkan API for its Ray Tracing capabilities and requires NVIDIA’s Turing GPUs in order to play with and use all of the advanced lighting effects.

All the owners of the original Quake II on Steam will get the RTX update free of charge. However, new users will get only 3 levels to play for free and if they want more levels with multiplayer as well, they will have to purchase the original Quake II for $4.99. The game will become available on June 6th, one day from present.

NVIDIA also published specifications required to run the game. Here is the list of minimum hardware needed:

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 7 64-bit or Ubuntu 16.04.6 and newer
Processor: Intel i3-3220 or AMD Equivalent
Memory: 8 GB RAM
