Quake II RTX is now available for Windows and Linux, a version of this classic FPS from 1997 updated to support NVIDIA’s ray-tracing tech. The free version is the three shareware levels as a demo, but this also supports the full version of the game.

Quake II RTX is fully ray-traced and includes the 3 levels from the original shareware distribution.
Shortly after landing on an alien surface, you learn that hundreds of your men have been reduced to just a few. Now you must fight your way through heavily fortified military installations, lower the city’s defenses and shut down the enemy’s war machine. Only then will the fate of humanity be known.
About Quake II RTX
Quake II RTX builds on the work of Christoph Schied and the team at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, who added ray tracing to Quake II to create Q2VKPT (in turn building upon the Q2PRO code base). NVIDIA has introduced new path-traced visual effects, has improved texturing, and has made dozens of other changes and improvements, resulting in an experience that rivals games created today, and pushes your RTX hardware to the limit.
