Added info pointing out that Quake Live has been a paid game.
Id also released a free web browser version of ''Quake III: Arena'', called '''[[http://www.quakelive.com Quake Live]]''', which also added many extra maps (especially third-party ones) and some extra game modes.

This game was designed almost exclusively with multiplayer mode in mind. Id had recognised the fact that the deathmatches were easily the most popular thing about ''Quake'' so far, and created this entry as a virtual arena for competitive online matches. The single-player mode contained only a very basic story, and was based around a series of tiers, with the player making its way to the final match against the Champion.

* CompetitiveBalance: In ''Team Arena'', you start as JackOfAllStats, as in any FPS, but in the maps with the Runes, depending on the rune you've taken, you may become: ** FragileSpeedster: Scout. (Negates your armor, and you're unable to pick up armor, but makes you faster) ** MightyGlacier or LightningBruiser: Guard. (You receive the max health and armor, and the health will regenerate to the maximum) ** GlassCannon: Doubler. (Increases your firerate and weapon damage) ** SpoonyBard: Ammo Regen. (Your ammunition regenerates... rather slowly)

** A minor one, but some bot chatlines were commented out, such as Angel's reactions when she gets killed by a player or kills with a [[SuicideAttack Kamikaze]].

** Barely noticeable in ''Team Arena'' itself, but it's still there - starting with the menu design and ending with the minor fact that Callisto has little face animation, unlike the other models.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Xaero is depicted barefoot - which is more or less appropriate, given he really is a cyborg.

* ExcusePlot: The game's plot goes like this: SufficientlyAdvancedAliens kidnapped some of the greatest warriors and made them fight each other to death and redeath. You die?

** ''Team Arena'' characters rely on "uniformed" voice acting rather than texted chat lines and, as a matter of fact, there's significantly less one-liners than in the vanilla Q3, but they're still here.

* CherryTapping: The game actually gives you a ''humiliation'' award for killing your opponent with the Gauntlet (a circular-saw-like melee weapon). This fact makes the otherwise useless Gauntlet a popular weapon, especially in ''Quake Live'', where other players can see how many people you "humiliate" during all your game sessions.
