Id Software has announced that Quake Live will come to Steam this summer. This release will come with an updated design of the web interface, as well as a few surprises. Quake Live will see a change in gameplay for those who want to check out the game on steam, in short, changes will come for the newbies. Lastly, new payment options will be made available through Steam.
A small update has been released yesterday that follows up on the new subscription model. Some premium features are now permanently available to standard users and it is said that new features only for subscribers will be added in future updates. Nothing more is said about those features, but the transferred features are very welcome
The first monday of July has passed and a new standard mappool has been made available. Having a quick glance at the list, standard players will be able to enjoy Campgrounds Intel, City Crossings, Toxicity, Terminatria, Troubled Waters and Vertical Vengeance. Other greats maps are also available but these will definitely get their share of playtime. Enjoy!
Id Software has lowered the prices for a Pro subscription and removed the Premium option altogether. Good news for all the Pro users, but not so pleasant for the Premium users. Only 1 subscription option is left, which simplifies the model. A token for 1 month will now cost $/€4.99, 3 months will cost $/€11.99 and a years worth of premium content will set you back $/€35.99. It’s no longer possible to buy a 6 month token as they were not populair, says SyncError in the news report.
A new month, a new pool. I’m a bit late with the “news” but better late than never. CTF doesn’t seem to have a really bad pool anymore lately. We have Ironworks and Japanese Castles to work with, as well as Infinity. Duel will revolve around Aerowalk, Cure, Delirium and Silence. A lot of fun
This month’s mappool has been released last monday. As usual, 26 arena’s are shuffled and made available for standard (free) players. These maps will be available from April 7 until May 4.
Remember that today is the last day of the “Play All Arenas in Start a Match” week! Pro subscribers can start servers for standard players and all maps are available regardless of the standard mappool. This works for any gametype, so get some FreezeTag, Red Rover, Domination, etc. going!
A new premium pak has been released by Id Software. There aren’t any major game changes but there are 4 new maps to play with. Let’s get right into it. Monastery is a medium-to-large sized map most suitable for Clan Arena, Free For All and Freeze Tag. Lots of edges and crates allow for a
The new mappool for standard players has been released this morning. A choice of 26 maps is available for people who do not have premium or pro accounts. CTF’s most interesting map rotation will include Japanese Castles, Shining Forces, Spider Crossings and Finnegan’s. I’m pretty sure Bloodlust and Railyard will get their own fair share
Id Software has released a small game update to Quake Live., mostly to fix exploits and callvote bugs. I think the most important bit about this update is that the bots will properly switch weapons when they run out of ammo and Clan Arena won’t crash when there are more players than spawn points on the map anymore. So people playing Clan Arena against bots, rejoice!
For those of us who have Pro accounts, you are now able to launch any gametype and host it for standard players as well. This should allow some gametypes to get more traction and along with that more players. If you ever wanted to try some of the non-standard gametypes, look for spawned servers by pro subscribers.
