Q3A Dreamcast To Play Mac, PC
9:27 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

With Quake 3: Arena set to be released very soon for the Sega Dreamcast console, PC (and Mac) players are wondering if some of the new content for the DC version will be released for us as well. The ShugaShack has been following the story, and received a response from id Software's Todd Hollenshead. Here's a clip:

First Q3A DC will be released (in process now).   Once we've finished up Team Arena and finalized the 1.25 patch for Q3A, then we'll work on creating the DC map pack for PC users.  Exclusive DC content will not be included in the PC map pack (that's part of our deal with Sega).  What WILL be included in the PC map pack are the DC versions of the Q3A levels that are in the PC version.  This includes the DC textures, etc., so that PC players and DC players will be able to play one another. The PC map pack will probably come out some time after the first of next year.
So although none of the exclusive content will be released, we should expect new maps to be able to frag the DC players online at the beginning of next year. This means that we should see both the Team Arena expansion and the final 1.25 patch before the end of the year. We'll keep you updated as Id makes progress with both of these projects, which are of course headed to the Mac platform as well.
