Quake 3: Team Arena Status
10:13 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
For quite some time fans of first-person shooters have been anticipating Quake 3: Team Arena, an expansion pack to this top-notch shooter which fills in many 'gaps' in gameplay. Now it seems the release date is finally drawing near. This add-on will bring many new gametypes to the original title, along with new character models and other cool features. As the name suggests, the focus of the expansion is on teamplay and capture-the-flag styles of play.
Blue's news recently spotted a thread started by id Software's Todd Hollenshead in the Quake3World forums, offering a quick status update on the expansion pack . Here's a clip:
We're getting close now! To being done with Team Arena that is. We should hopefully have a bunch of new info available real soon and even a demo (!). Just a little pre-Thanksgiving (US) FYI for everyone.So it sounds like gamers might be able to try out a demo as early as this week. A bit further down, Hollenshead also remarks the final patch for Quake 3: Arena should also be out soon:
Yes, the final Q3 patch (probably 1.26 or sequential) should follow soon after the demo. The final patch won't be this week, but hopefully soon thereafter.This should bring a number of fixes to both the Mac OS and OS X versions of Quake 3: Arena. More info is promised soon, so we'll keep you updated.
