15 Years Of Quake II
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments

Yesterday marked the 15th anniversary of the release of id Software's Quake II. The sci-fi first person shooter featured a single player storyline revolving around the exploits of a space marine facing off against the deadly Strogg, while the multiplayer action entertained players long after the completion of the single player campaign.

From the Bethesda Blog:

Today marks the 15th anniversary of QUAKE II’s release on PC. Celebrating the affair, id Software’s Tim Willits shared some fun facts about the game:
  • Only three artists made all the 2D and 3D art for the entire game.
  • One of the original suggested names for QUAKE II was WOR, but the game’s fast-paced, tactile feel felt closer to a QUAKE game than a new franchise.
  • ‘The Edge’ (Tim’s favorite deathmatch level in QUAKE II or any other game), has over 50 trick jumps possible in the map. Tim only designed two of them, and the rest were discovered by the QUAKE II community.

Happy 15th Quake II
