Quake Live

Recently at GDC '08 id Software announced that the newest “Quake Zero” project would now be called Quake Live. Quake Live is a free browser based game that offers stat tracking, tournaments, matchmaking and other features all for free. This game will be kept free with the use of in game ads and banners.

"id Software is among the proverbial godfathers of modern gaming and we are thrilled to be working with them on their first title in our 'freemium' category," said Justin Townsend, CEO of IGA Worldwide. "This partnership is only the latest testament to the increasing acceptance of in-game as an effective, measurable advertising medium and a strategic revenue opportunity for publishers and developers."

The engine looks to be using a modified Tech 3 engine (Quake 3) that we all know and love. I’m curious to see how they pull this browser based game off because I know many browsers tend to take up a bit of ram. I’ve personally seen my own system get upwards of 150MB of ram taken with just a few tabs open over time. Throw in a full 3d game and that overhead could cause issues with some players on older systems.

To try and get a piece of the action before anyone else point your browsers to www.quakelive.com/ and get in on the beta before it begins. I will post more info as it becomes available.

THIS - great news.

Thats true, Meganoob, browsers do tend to take up lots'a RAM, but there is one thing we should not forget - Carmack is behind this project, and he is famous for his coding system - its extremely simple and versatile - no need to say how many other games are using tech 3 (quake3) engine. Take call of duty for example. :)
