QuakeCon opened with the announcement that Quake Live will soon arrive on Steam.

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.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      does this mean bethesda plans on at least curating the id back catalog?

      for example, i'd love a new official source port of doom with a built-in level-editor and steamworks support. something like that could be nuuuuts.

      Sweet, I'd much rather play it through steam than launch the stupid website.....I hope that goes away.

        They did away with the website a couple months ago, now its a standalone client. Nobody seems to know though, so its great that its going to Steam

          The client is pretty clunky, though

            Which is unfortunate because Steam will likely just launch that thing, right? I'd like to see full steam integration but I don't see that happening.

      This game is too hardcore. It will never become mainstream. It occupies the space in people's brains that Linux does to the majority of people.

      Should make a web gl/javescript version.

      Does it still have the paid maps that killed it?

      Makes sense. I checked in on the game last week by going to the website and it downloaded a standalone client.
