Video Game: Quake III: Arena
Quake III: Arena
"Untold centuries ago the Vadrigar, the mysterious Arena Masters, constructed the Arena Eternal for their own infernal amusement. Virtually nothing is known of these beings except that they savor the carnage and clamor of battle. As such, they have stocked the arena with the greatest warriors of all time. And you have just joined their ranks."
is the third entry in the Quake
series, launched in 1999.
This time, several warriors from all the corners of the galaxy duked it out in order to entertain the Sufficiently Advanced Aliens
, and win the honor of being the most Badass
warrior of all time. Characters from several of Id's games, such as Doom
and the two previous Quake
games, were present in it.
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.
This game received an Expansion Pack
in the form of Quake III: Team Arena
, made by Id themselves, which was focused in team games. Here you must choose a team and duke it out with the other clans.
Id also released a free web browser version of Quake III: Arena
, called Quake Live
, which also added many extra maps (especially third-party ones) and some extra game modes.
And finally there's a Xbox LIVE Arcade
version called Quake Arena Arcade
, which was released December 15, 2010, which has some new maps.
The game has a character sheet
