Update on id
11:50 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

id Software's Todd Hollenshead has updated his .plan file with word on what's currently happening inside the original hard core gaming company. He notes the team's excitement about Ritual's upcoming Quake 3 engine-based game, Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2. Hollenshead also mentions they are now finishing up their add-on for Quake 3, known as Team Arena. Here's his update in full:

Congrats to Ritual. We've been playing a bit of FAKK 2 over here
between wrapping up Team Arena, prepping for QuakeCon 2000, and starting
DOOM. There's going to be a number of Quake 3 engine titles coming out
over the next few months that I'm really looking forward to. FAKK2, Elite
Force and Alice are all looking like outstanding games.

If you're coming down for QuakeCon, most people will be pleased to know
that it shouldn't be quite as hot this year as it was last year. It's still
the summer in Texas, but the forecast is for mid-90's instead of every
day being 104+ like last summer. With a little bit of a breeze it's not
that bad. Honest.

QuakeCon 2000 is the ultimate conference dedicated to (you guessed it) Quake. It begins tomorrow and runs through Sunday with workshops, celebrity speakers such as John Carmack, and of course tons of Quake 3 Arena tournament action. As you can tell from Hollenshead's update, it is held in Texas, so be prepared for warm weather if you plan to attend. We'll keep you posted if any Mac-specific goodies come out of this year's event.
