Previously it just by invite only, now you “frag” each other at around 11:00 PM Eastern tonight.
Quake Live (formerly known as Quake Zero) is a first-person shooter video game in development by id Software and announced in 2007. Focusing on the multiplayer aspect of the game, it succeeds its predecessor Quake III Arena as a “major league” first-person shooter eSports competition game.The game has entered an invitation-based closed beta in 2008.
Various game modes from Quake 3 will return:
Free For All: Players engage in a match, where everyone fights for himself. Whoever hits the frag limit the game ends, and this person wins. When the time limit expires, the match will also end.
Team Deathmatch: Same rules, in this mode, two teams fight each other.
Capture The Flag: Each team has a base, holding a flag. To earn points and win the game, a team has to take the opposite flag, and return them to their own.
Clan Arena: Teambased gameplay, everyone starts fully equipped with full armor and weapons. When fragged, the player must wait for the next round to begin.
There also is an Instagib mode. In this Free For All mode, players start with only a Railgun, which always delivers One Hit KO’s in this mode. Instagib servers are unranked.
