Reaction Quake 3 Beta 2.0 Release Today
6:00 AM | Tristan Kane | Comment on this story

In an announcement that is bound to please many FPS fans, a recent posting at has announced that Reaction Quake 3 Beta 2.0 will be released some time today (Friday). Reaction Quake 3 is a mod for Quake III: Arena and is essentially a port of the very popular mod Action Quake 2. Here is an excerpt from the announcement:

Tonight, we invited some members of the Quake 3 media scene to come to our weekly playtest. Everything went great. Not only were all the bugs (at least the ones I knew about) fixed, but the coders also had a little free time to add some last new eye candy. Some of the features you will see in Beta 2.00 include:

  • teamplay gameplay mode
  • brand new TeamArena user-interface
  • all new physics code (so close to Action Quake 2, you can't notice)
  • 8 brand new maps (for 16 total now), with more on the way that will be hosted on the Backlot
  • much, much more
  • A later posting to the site has revealed that full bot support is also a feature of this mod. And if you still need some convincing that this is a mod worth having, there is a trailer available on the site to get you in the mood for fragging.

    Note that Reaction Quake 3 requires a working version of Quake III: Arena, and advises a machine that is well above its minimum specifications. For further information on Reaction Quake 3 or to download the trailer and the mod when it is released, please follow the first link below.
