Today we have released a small update for QUAKE LIVE. As of today, several of the classically “premium-only” features have been cycled into the realm of standard-content for everyone to enjoy. In the coming updates we will now be adding new features for our subscribers to enjoy, but we felt that now was a good time to begin making some of our long standing perks available to everyone who plays. In addition to this we’ve also included a number of small fixes and improvements.
