Xbox Insiders on Windows PC are invited to preview Quake 4. Originally released in 2005, players lead the invasion of an alien planet in this epic, narrative-driven and action-packed FPS from the award-winning id Software and Raven Software.
Check out the Xbox Insider Hub on Windows PC to join the preview today! This preview is an integral part of bringing the game to Windows PC, and we are delighted that you’ll be a part of it!
How to Participate:
Sign-in on Windows PC and launch the Xbox Insider Hub app (or install the Xbox Insider Hub from the Store first if necessary).
Navigate to Previews > Quake 4.
Wait for the registration to complete to be directed to the Store and install Quake 4!
NOTE: This preview is only available on Windows PC.
NOTE: Please ensure you are signed into the Microsoft Store with the same account you used to register for the flight in the Xbox Insider Hub app.
Quake 4 requires administrator privileges to run. If somehow the Windows User Account Control (UAC) prompt is bypassed when launching the title for the first time, the title may crash. If that happens, find the Quake4GDK.exe in your XboxGames folder and launch it as administrator.

Seems not to be available in Germany.
Works fine in germany.
I don't see it. Should be here? https://i.imgur.com/bfdbi4a.png
What does this mean?
I dont understand quake4 is already released on windows
Yeah, but it's virtually dead. Currently pulled stats by Argumented Steam (useful browser extension for Steam):
Not dead, more of a niche. It requires some thought which is too much for today's FPS gamers
I have enjoyed the game very much back in the day
Apparently the current build here doesn't work on modern systems well, I read you may need to tweak the ini to even get it started. This is probably ms making sure it is suitable for their windows store/gamepass, they're likely doing more than just ini changes if they're looking for testers
That's on Steam. The only one available on retail with the Microsoft Store is for the Xbox 360, not PC.
Microsoft buying bethesda(id software) and then activision(raven software) just to get quake 4 out of license limbo and onto gamepass! (;
Proudly waiting for Quake 5.
This is the way. Waiting for others.
I hope they'll make it work on xbox one, the 360 version is dreaful.
Not sure if this is old or not but Wolfenstein Enemy Territory is also available.
So do I keep it forever? Sorry, new to this Xbox inside preview thing.
I played through Quake 4 about a year and a half ago. It's decent. It's nowhere near as good as Quake 1 or 2, and feels somewhat generic.
Yeah the first half sucked because the movement was slow. After the stroggification tho the game got better.
The process through :-)
For a while it used to be the most horrifying thing I've seen as a kid.
Dead space eye scene was horrifying too
Quake 2 feels more generic IMO, no real plot or anything to draw you in. Some levels are really cool though.
Quake 4 fixed that. After the stroggification it became personal.
Dat q2 soundtrack thou
iummm 'm lost, a Preview for a game that has already been released?
is remake one.
There hasn't been a PC version in the Microsoft Store. Only the 360 one.
Bear with me on this one....
I'd love to see a remaster of Q3A. Not like QL was but actual Q3a but with upgraded graphics etc.
I think that'd be awesome. QL was great tho, but they kinda killed it when they switched from it being browser based to steam I feel.
Anyone else having issues with game performance? I get 40-50 framerate and frame drops on the highest settings. I have i7-6700HQ and GTX 1070.
