The recent release of Quake Remastered was received positively by fans. However, there's always room for improvement. The developer has released its first major update, which brought several enhancements along with balancing changes. Modding support has also been improved.

Playing the game with a controller is now a lot easier, with the Analog Stick Input being more responsive. New options like deadzone, aim smoothing, and aim acceleration have been added. You can change these settings by going to the Input Options menu.
