Quake Live – play quake in your browser


Id software has released a free online browser based multiplayer version of Quake for you to play with. That’s mighty nice of them!

The process is simple, sign up like you would for a forum, download a not-too-large specialized plugin and restart your browser. When you log in the assets for an introductory game will begin to load automatically and soon you’ll be fragging away at your heart’s content surrounded by all the classic Quake multiplayer characters you know and love… to frag.

Apparently aping the classic game isn’t the only thing they’ll be doing, skill rankings come into play and once you reach higher levels, mmorpg style “bonuses” like epic mounts (Basically, you get to ride an Orb) come into play giving you extra firepower and a cool look.
