I would expect to have to turn it more than a quarter turn. Use a pair of pliers if the plug is stiff. Just work it back and forth circumferentially, don't force it.

Thanks for your reply, i tried that but its solid once it becomes vertical, i think the water is supposed to leak out of a small drainage spout below the plug but i dont want to break anything.

Sorry, I thought I'd remembered a half turn before it pulled out.

Coolant is meant to come out the drainage spout but I found on my car it was blocked.
