Quake Live Will Soon Stand On Its Own
There is no doubt that Quake III was one of the better games of its era. The PC shooter was both intriguing and very competitive, whereby players spent hours and hours attempting to master the game and what it had to offer.
Over the years, Quake III inevitably died out. Competitions became scarce and players decided to move on, except for a few hardcore ones. Then, someone decided to experiment with the game: what if Quake III’s competitive mode could be played through a browser?

Welcome Quake Live–a browser version of the old title.
Quake Live was moderately successful amongst the fans, however it was mostly appreciated by the hardcore crowd. The professionals, if I may.
While it has been around for quite some time, it never received much attention from the mainstream gaming market. We also neglected it quite a bit–although we did play it. Alessandro was even banned, because he was so bad that they thought he was cheating. Weird logic, I know.
Now, the Quake Live experience is about to change again. This time round, id Software has said that the game will be available as a fully downloadable title by the end of the year.
Quake Live’s separate version will be easy to use. Players basically need to visit the original site, whereby they can download the new launcher. The update is aimed at helping players find matches sooner.
“This change will allow us to have greater control over the game environment, and more tightly integrate the game with the online components going forward,” says the game’s site.
There is no specific date for when this change will happen, instead, it is just said to be happening at the end of the year.
