Default id announces Quake Arena for Xbox Live Arcade

Quote:
The finest railgun in the business will be making its way to Xbox Live Arcade as id announces Quake Arena for Microsoft's download service. Previously, this release was merely a rumor fueled by a surprise listing on the ESRB website, so it's great to finally have an official word to go on.

Also true to the ESRB listing is that Pi Studios -- best known for their work on the Call of Duty series and the upcoming Mercaneries 2: World in Flame -- is behind the port.

No comment as to when Quake Arena will see release was made by id.

Announced two years ago at QuakeCon 2007, we haven't heard much from the Xbox Live Arcade version of Quake. Today, Pi Studios has released the first screenshot of this XBLA port of Quake.

Additionally, the developer has confirmed that game will feature more than 40 Arenas with support for up 16-person multiplayer. Supported game modes include Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Tournament, Harvester and Overload. Quake Arena Arcade also features leaderboards, matchmaking and 12 Xbox Live Arcade Achievements.

FUCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKK YES! The FPS that set the standard for competitive FPS.

You CoD, Killzone, Halo, etc. players should give this a shot and see where you stand.

Yknow what sucks though? No KB&M support. Even the DC version did that. With the way Q3A controls and no aim assist, i wonder how people will be accurate with rails. Well, theres always the good ol' jump and proximity rocket. If anything, i just hope theres a console to type and send stuff. I actually miss that. Call it nostalgia.

I can hear the rage now when someone taunts after getting killed lol.

Now if only they can release the original Unreal Tournament on Live.

you can't rocket jump properly with a gamepad.
