Quake Live Update Adds Premium Maps
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

id Software recently announced a new update for Quake Live, the company's browser based first person shooter. Among other things the update includes 3 new premium maps for players to enjoy. Based on the Quake III engine, the game challenges players to master their shooting and dodging skills as they battle with others.

Premium Maps Added:
  • Concrete Palace (Duel):
    From the Pawel Chrapka, author of "Leviathan" and "Dreadful Place", comes a new creation inspired by one of his earlier works. Concrete Palace is a masterful midsized duel arena with one primary atrium connected to itself by a slew of teleporters and small halls.

  • Dies Irae (TDM):
    Aptly named for the thirteenth century Latin hymn (Day of Wrath) and also from Pawel Chrapka, Dies Irae is a superb Team Deathmatch, Clan Arena, and FreezeTag arena. The level encompasses a large central hub room that is home to Quad, a floating platform, and a teleporter exit that has been caged off prior to opening. Great fun, recommended for 8-10 players.

  • Skyward (CTF):Based on an original open-sourced design by the Q3 Community mapper 'ButterB', Skyward is a clean and stylish 'space map' set high up in the sky. There three elaborate floating platforms set the stage for a well-balanced mix of cover and open-air combat. With plenty of armor, rockets, and plasma at your disposal, the railgun plays a much smaller role in Skyward combat than typical for a space map, leading to more close range fighting while still having to worry about long range enemy sniper fire. Recommended for 4-8 players.
