For those Quake Live fans that have an aversion to standalone clients, QuakeCon has your needs met. This year's event opened up with the news that Quake Live would be coming to Steam.
No date has been given for Quake Live's upcoming Steam release. For those PC users that can't wait that long, the client is currently available through the Quake Live website. Unfortunately, since Mac and Linux still does not support the client, those users may just have to wait for that Steam release.
