Quake: The reboot of the classic shooter is said to be in the works


It seems that the shooter classic Quake is about to make a comeback in the not too distant future. At least that's what industry insider and gaming journalist Nick "Shpeshal Nick" Baker, who is also known as one of the founders of XboxEra, claims. He came up with the topic in the latest edition of the XboxEra podcast and had some interesting details up his sleeve.

According to this, the reboot of the first-person shooter Quake is now (buy now € 15.31 / 4, 49 €) for the id Software development team. It allegedly receives support from the Studio Machine Games, which already has a lot of experience in the shooter genre. After all, games like Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: Youngblood are from this team.

Baker also reports that both a single-player campaign and a multiplayer part are firmly planned for the reboot. In addition, the main character of the shooter remake this time should be a woman, but no further details are known so far.

Nick Baker may not be as prominent as many other leakers. However, his predictions have often been correct in the recent past. For example, he predicted that the rogue-like game Hades would become part of Xbox Game Pass later this year. He was also right with the April lineup for PlayStation Plus. So there could be something to the Quake thing as well. The id Software team has not yet commented on this topic.

Millions Join Mexico Quake Drills After Pandemic Eases

MEXICO CITY - Millions of people across Mexico on Monday took part in earthquake simulation drills for the first time since they were suspended last year because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The resumption of the emergency exercises follows a steady decline in new COVID-19 cases and deaths in Mexico, one of the countries worst hit by the virus. 

The drills, held regularly before the health crisis, aim to prepare the country for the inevitable next major tremor to strike one of the most seismically active regions on Earth. 

This year the authorities urged people to wear face masks and socially distance to avoid infection with the coronavirus, which the government says has killed more than 231,000 people in Mexico. 

People take part in an earthquake drill, the first since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, in Mexico City on June 21, 2021.

In the capital, the exercises simulated an 8.1-magnitude earthquake with an epicenter off the coast of the southern state of Guerrero that was strongly felt in Mexico City. 

According to the authorities, around 6 million people participated in the capital, many of them evacuating buildings and pouring into the streets after warnings over the city's more than 12,000 loudspeakers. 

About 200 of the devices failed, according to authorities. 

The warning system uses seismic monitors with the aim of giving Mexico City's 9 million residents advance warning of earthquakes with epicenters along the Pacific Coast. 

'We must be prepared whenever earthquakes happen. Since we practice often, we already knew what to do,' Jose Ramirez, a 32-year-old head waiter, told AFP. 

On Reforma avenue, home to major hotels, corporations and government offices, thousands of people evacuated buildings when the alert sounded. 

People take part in an earthquake drill, the first since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, in Mexico City on June 21, 2021.

Civil Protection helicopters flew overhead, and firefighters deployed as part of the simulation in a country sitting atop five tectonic plates, including three major ones. 

On September 19, 1985, an 8.1-magnitude quake killed more than 10,000 people and destroyed hundreds of buildings in Mexico City. 

Shortly after residents held a practice drill on the anniversary of that earthquake in 2017, a 7.1-magnitude tremor left 370 people dead, mainly in the capital. 

In other states with no seismic risk, such as Nuevo Leon in northern Mexico, Monday's exercises simulated a fire.
