  • An all new “Freeze Tag” game mode;
  • Exclusive premium level awards;
  • Create your own clan and join up to five separate clans;
  • Custom QUAKE LIVE profile wallpaper; and
  • Match statistics stored for six months.

Pro Subscription – $3.99 per month billed annually, includes all of the premium subscription features plus:

  • The ability to start your own game server, specify a server location, determine the game mode and invite who you want to join you;
  • With the Pro Subscription, you can invite three friends with Standard level memberships to play with you in any Premium level map;
  • Exclusive pro awards;
  • Create your own clan and join up to ten separate clans; and
  • Match statistics stored for 12 months.

The Standard version of Quake Live is still free to play, and includes friend lists, access to one clan, matchmaking, and stats tracking delivered through a web browser with more than 40 arenas and five game modes.

    The pricing seems decent, however there’s so much competition on this field that I tend to doubt Quake Live will have much success. After all, it’s still just Quake III, which was an extraordinary game… 10 years ago. And so much better has been done since then.

    You’d realy have to be bang into Quake to pay for Live. It’s brilliant, but mainly because it’s so lightweight and it was free. Be interesting to see if they get anywhere with this now.
