Quake II on GeForce NOW
id Software’s classic first-person shooter is better than ever, streaming from the cloud.

Experience the authentic, enhanced and complete version of id Software’s critically acclaimed first-person shooter, Quake II, now streaming from the cloud.

Humankind is at war with the Strogg, a hostile alien race that’s attacked Earth. In response, humanity launched a strike on the Strogg homeworld — which failed. Outnumbered and outgunned, battle through fortified military installations to shut down the enemy’s war machine. Only then will the fate of humanity be decided.

Quake II includes a new, enhanced version of id Software’s classic, along with both original mission packs: “The Reckoning” and “Ground Zero.” Plus, battle through 28 campaign levels in MachineGames’ all-new “Call of the Machine” expansion and play through the exclusive levels from Quake II 64 for the first time on PC. Blast the Stroggs or friends in classic multiplayer modes at up to 4K and 120 frames per second or with ultrawide resolutions for GeForce NOW Ultimate members.
