The next Quake Live update is on the horizon, and with it brings some important changes as to how players will access and play Quake Live.

As early as next week, Quake Live will be discontinuing our Launcher and will be available exclusively on Steam. With the move we will be replacing many of our services with Steamworks alternatives, including many new features such as in-game achievements, voice chat, lobbies, workshop, and more! If you haven’t transitioned yet, please visit us on Steam today to join us and keep fragging on Steam!

Four new arenas! Two new announcers! Five new medals! Starting weapon changes and more! Today’s update brings us some new content and important fixes, read what’s new below!

New Arenas Added:

  • Elder

Deep from within the bowels of the Nameless City lies Elder, a nostalgic Quake 1 inspired arena. This small and simple dreary place is home to more than just it’s combatants, for Elder beings lie dormant in waiting, feeding off the pain and torment of it’s captives. Locked away within lies 1xRA, 2xYA, 1xMH, and a 1x50hp for players to control, and after two minutes of gameplay two heavy stone doors reveal access to a railgun previously inaccessible. However beware, on Elder more than the usual is up for grabs as one shiny gold key lingers in it’s halls for one and only one player to control; control the key and control the map. Designed by Adam ‘SyncError’ Pyle for Duel, Elder is also available for small FFA and 2v2 TDM matches.

New Game Mechanics:

  • Keys – Keys are available for pickup immediately on match start and once picked never respawn until the key holder dies. Kill the key holder and then retrieve the key to gain passage through the locked gold door. Elder introduces this concept with the gold key and door, and we’ve added support for future maps to also posses silver and master keys. The silver, gold, and master key models were crafted by Jochum ‘Hipshot’ Skoglund.
  • Single State (Unary) Switches – Buttons and triggers now exist that allow you to activate a door or platform causing the mover to move once and remain in place for the remainder of the map, allowing maps to dynamically alter over the course of a match. Extending the ramps or opening the Obelisk Courtyard on Elder will create new means …read more

There’s a new upcoming arena FPS shooter entitled ‘Operation: Hellstorm’ being developed by Scionia Games.  From my understanding, these guys are huge Quake fans. Up until now all we’ve seen from this title has been concept art and sketches.  Yesterday they released their first developer video log. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BY-tFW4ic7M

Eternal glory! That’s what awaits the players who win the Tri-Master Tournament, but to do this, that team must survive three tasks. Three extremely dangerous tasks.

For the first time in QuakeCon history, Quake Live players from around the globe will be tested in one single tournament comprised of all three modes that have come to define competitive Quake.

The Quake Live Tri-Master Tournament will feature competitions for up to 16 four-player teams, where each team will be put to the test in a triathlon comprised of Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, and Duel – with only one team standing at the end as the true Tri-Master Champion. Teams who come out on top will share prizes of $32,000. At the conclusion of the Tri-Master Tournament, the top two individual duelers selected by their team will then face off to claim an additional $8,000 and the title of Grand Master Champion.

As part of QuakeCon’s 20th year, The Quake Live Tri-Master Tournament will be held July 23-26, 2015 in Dallas, TX, USA in the Wedgwood Ballroom at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. Teams with professional or extensive Quake Live experience are encouraged to rally around a strong dueler and sharpen their CTF and TDM skills.

Sign-ups are now open by emailing tournaments@quakelive.com! Please see the official tournament rules for more details.
