Quake 4 1.1 Patch Released


Activision sends along the Quake 4 1.1 patch, which is now final. The 119mb download offers a ton of improvements, mostly for the game's multiplayer modes. There are also four new maps.

The QUAKE 4 1.1 Point Release update is now available. This highly anticipated patch addresses a number of issues throughout both single and multiplayer, with a heavy and attentive focus on improving the multiplayer experience. Such improvements include: a fixed pure server system, a new AddonPak autodownloading system, voice chat in multiplayer, a forcemodel option, brightskins, smooth stair-jumping, a one-minute warning for tournament matches, Hyper-Threading Technology and Dual Core support as well as a ton of multiplayer specific fixes which have been requested by the community and discovered during our own gameplay.
Update: The patch has been temporarily removed, as id Software sends along this: "There is a problem with the widescreen functionality that may harm a user's monitor. We are working on a re-release and will make it available as soon as possible". If you have the patch installed do NOT enable or disable widescreen.

    Impromptu Shackbattle? Honestly, I didn't play Quake 4 online for more than a half an hour, but I did like what I played...
