Big Download: Quake Live Hands-on

Let's face it: id Software could charge for Quake Live if they wanted to. For a game that was first released in the now-fossilized year of 1999, Quake III: Arena is still the crux of many competitions, user-created mods, and casual LAN parties. Yes, id could charge $20, $50, or even a monthly subscription fee, and most Quake-aholics would gladly submit their dollars into John Carmack's overflowing bank account.

They could make you pay -- but they won't. After Quake Live wraps up its beta phase, the browser-based re-release of id's 1999 multiplayer opus will be available free of charge for anyone with a web browser and an itchy trigger clicker. Big Download recently delved into the Quake Live beta to sift out the new from the classic, and to relive a cherished FPS that the world will continue to enjoy for years to come.

Bob Dole remembers the good ole days of Quake 3 arena. He's glad they're bringing it back for everyone to play for free. Now they just need to release RAGE!!!
