Quake: the remaster added a level piece that was deleted from the original


When the original Quake was in development, the developers of id Software set a limit: each .bsp file had to weigh a maximum of 1.4 MB, meaning no map had to go beyond the weight of a single floppy disk. To respect this limit, the E2M6 map - Dismal Oubliette - has been reduced in size. Now, however, thanks to the remaster version of Quake we can play that lost section.

The area is the base of a cavern, wet and windy, and we must climb to the top while we eliminate various creatures typical of Quake . At that point, we come to what for many years was the real start of the level.

Quake: the map E2M6 - Dismal Oubliette - Romero, on Quake's fifth anniversary, had told what happened: "Yes , there was a much more interesting start to that area than Quake, but I had to amputate and cauterize the wound and get its current state, the starting point of e2m6. I remember spending many hours trying to get it right , to create the feeling of a hideous and cavernous pit that the player could get out of to enter the real horror of Oubliette. It added quite a lot of playtime and I'm sorry he had to go, but we fixed the size .BSP file to 1.4MB and we had to be rigorous about it. "

Now, you can find out about that section. Please note that Quake on PS5 will offer 4K, 120 Hz and exclusive DualSense functions.
