For those who haven’t logged in in the past 2 days, the Quake Live sampler has been switched up to Domination.

I wanted to highlight this part from the Premium Pak 17 update, so here it goes: next weekend, May 10th to May 12th Quake Live will be completely FREE! All content will be available to standard players, so if you always wanted to test the Quake Live Premium content, this weekend will be the perfect Read More
Id Software has release Premium Pak 17, meaning that everyone who has a paid subscription will get new content and (slightly) older premium content will be passed down to the free members. This time however 1 of the new premium maps will be released straight into the standard mappool: a Clan Arena map named Repent. This has everything to do with the fact that Quake Live was unavailable for quite some time. To further soothe the sore Id Software has also extended the paid subscriptions by 3 days.
Now that I have briefly mentioned Repent: along with this new map Id Software also released 2 other maps. A TDM map named Arcane Citadel and a duel map named Cure. All 3 maps also purpose other game modes such as Red Rover, Freeze Tag and others (details in the full release note). I will run through all of these maps
later and attach a video if my partner in crime Lashknife is up for it.
Further down the release note we can find that next weekend will be free premium weekend! The rest of the premium pak includes a few other smaller changes that have been made to the game, such as a HUD Score Element fix and some map fixes.
This concludes the short overview of the new Premium Pak, read the full log by clicking the Continue Reading button if you have stumbled on this post via our homepage or click here to read it straight from the source. Read More

No more Red Rover since yesterday, but Harvester. If you didn’t get the chance to play this gametype because it was premium, look no further and try it now. Several servers are spawned around the globe so join up and give it a taste. In harvester you have to collect skulls that appear when you frag an enemy. Grabbing the skulls from the center of map and taking them to the enemy’s base will score you a point. First to 15 wins. Read More
