Bethesda giving out Quake 2 and Quake 3 for free on its launcher
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.
THANK YOU! The total is in, and you raised over $30,000 during #QuakeCon at Home for @NAACP_LDF, @DirectRelief, @TrevorProject, and @UNICEF!— Bethesda (@bethesda) August 10, 2020
As a thank you, we'll be unlocking Quake II on 8/12 and Quake III on 8/17, free for 72 hours each on the Bethesda net Launcher. pic.twitter.com/dfNM6F1qaH
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.
