You read that right folks. For all those who weren’t able to snatch a beta key, ID is finally moving Quake Live from closed to open beta stage this Feb 24. There’s a timer on the site (7 hours left here) so you know when to start fragging online.
For those of you living under a rock, Quake Live is basically Quake 3 online with some fixes here and there, running straight in you web browser (IE and Firefox for now I believe), all for free! I was able to get into the beta a month or 2 ago and it definitely is Quake 3 in all its glory. Only problem was the missing servers here in Asia, which meant hellish ping times for me (3-second delay anyone?). Hopefully, the people behind this amazing app realize this and put out servers here so we can start joining in as well.
