It was nearly 15 years ago today when id Software unleashed Quake III, a groundbreaking FPS that set the very benchmark for the modern shooter’s multiplayer we see today.
Quake III continues to thrive in the form of Quake Live, a massively online adaptation of the classic which has just received a massive update on Steam. This updates adds a host of new improvements and content, such as Steam Trading Cards, renovated maps, and new arenas to battle in. The list of updates is rather extensive, so be sure to read it all on the Quake Live blog.
id Software also tweeted the following to commemorate this occasion:
