The game's original plot focused on the player character, later known as "Ranger" in Quake III: Arena, who travels across alternate dimensions to stop an enemy code-named "Quake". The game takes place in a Lovecraftian setting with a mixture of dark fantasy and science fiction.
With a focus on competitive multiplayer, Quake III Arena and its successors de-emphasised the setting of the first two games while still retaining continuity with them and crossing over with id's Doom franchise. Quake Champions, in particular, is heavily influenced by the mythology of the original game.
