As reported on Eurogamer and Kotaku, id Software's QuakeCon keynote speech included the revelation of Quake Zero, a web-based variation of Quake III Arena. The experimental project will be supported by advertising and, when complete, should be available to a wide variety of computer users.
QZ will be a free web-based version of Quake 3 multiplayer. Todd Hollenshead told me they decided to kick off this project for several reasons. First and foremost, id hated to see their game, once quite popular for online matches, losing its prominence in the online gaming scene, this will allow virtually anyone with a computer to play matches of their games.Head over to the sites below to learn more.

Hollenshead said id also wanted to dip their toe in in-game advertising, and that this seemed like the best way to approach it. So expect ads to be running on the web page when you play Quake Zero,but free games for ads seem absolutely fine to me.
