Bethesda giving out Quake 2 and Quake 3 for free on its launcher

For RL.

Bethesda is giving out Quake 2 and Quake 3: Arena for free to anyone who logs on to the Bethesda launcher.

Quake 2 is free now if you log in to the launcher. Quake 3 is free to download for 72 hours from 17th August. Once you download the games within their limited-time promo window, they're yours forever.

It's all part of a QuakeCon at Home charity drive that kicked off over the weekend with a free copy of Quake 1. Over $30,000 was raised for a raft of charities, including The Trevor Project and Unicef.

Id Software's fantastic first-person shooters are well worth grabbing if you don't have them already, even now, over 20 years after they came out.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
