If you bought Bethesda’s recently released Quake remaster for Sony or Microsoft’s platforms, today’s your lucky day—the publisher just released a next-gen upgrade that adds 4K resolution at up to 120 fps, and the upgrade is free.

Announced Tuesday on Bethesda’s blog, id Software’s classic first-person shooter is now available for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S to owners of the game on PS4 or Xbox One, following the game’s surprise release at QuakeCon in August. At the time, the remaster shadow-dropped for Sony and Microsoft’s last-gen consoles, Nintendo Switch, and PC; next-gen versions were announced as coming in the future, but no release date was given.

No matter the platform, this is a quality remaster with a range of improvements, including cross-play and bot support for multiplayer, the original single-player campaign and its expansions, and toggles for visual perks such as antialiasing, ambient occlusion, and upgraded gun models.
