IncGamers reports that the Quake Live beta is now open to the public.
No way? In your browser you say?
I am slightly reserved to this idea...
I could be wrong but i think the game itself launches like it used to, the browser is for finding matches etc, can anyone confirm?
The game is played inside your web browser, but there is an option to full-screen the game.
Crikey, look at the queue!
Already? I thought this would be live tomorrow...
Why would you think that when you have info here? =P
Yay, been waiting for this for ages.
What's so precious about it?
Defiantly the advancements that have been made in browser based gaming.
And the fact that it's Quake.
Quake's awesome, in some ways I'm more psyched about Quake Live than Killzone2, which I know! I Know! I'm just not normal!
I was in closed beta and it's still fun as all get out. I'm highly looking forward to Killzone 2 too.
Waiting in a queue of some 5000+? They didn't mention anything about that, before...Nope, I can't say I remember seeing anything about this during the announcements. From what reading I just did, it seems you have to first wait in the queue (numbers up to 30k+ quoted) which wins you the grand prize of an installer! Then back to the queue, to grab the download, then queue some more this time, to grab a "warm-up" game against a bot, before finally returning to again wait to play the game in some fashion of vs. play...I'll wait for it to come out of open beta, to full release.
Position in Queue: 10910
11,727 in queue
but when your done and in the browser, its very fun. and yes it plays in your browser it does go full screen but when you press esc you have the option of putting it back into the browser
I sat in the que until I was ready to launch to find out it's not OS X compatible yet :S They could of warned me before I qued! oh well, I'll just have to be waiting a bit longer.
Battlefield Heroes > Quake Live imo Trust me :D
