Quake Live is moving out of web browsers to a standalone client

Friday, 8th November 2013 01:11 GMT By Mike Irving

Online FPS Quake Live will transition to a standalone game client by the end of the year.

The announcement was made on the Quake Live forums today, and the team attribute the move to inconsistent running conditions caused by browsers dropping support for plugins. Players will need to download a new launcher, promising a quick and painless transition. All game data and player stats will carry over.

Unfortunately though, the new client will be unable to natively support Mac and Linux.

Thanks, PC Games N.

    That’d be nice. I’m also hoping that they’re going to make it modifiable, too.

    What I wouldn’t give for a graphically updated version of the original Unreal Tournament, too. That’d be nice. I miss that kind of thing. Back when FPS games were imaginative.

    This will be very convenient to just download a client and play from your desktop. The web browser version is still cool though.

    Yes…it really does seem like every first person shooter nowadays have to be an over glorified military shooter over and over again each year.

    I would definitely recommend Xonotic if you like weapons with secondary functions like in Unreal tournament…and it’s also free to play. also, another called Warsow if you like parkour thrown in the mix.
