Team Arena demo

id Software releases a stand-alone demo of their Quake 3 Arena add-on, which finally adds some more teamplay options to the deathmatch game

Although "Quake III : Arena" was arguably the best deathmatch game released to date, there was very little else to it apart from your basic toe-to-toe free-for-all fragging. A few unremarkable Capture The Flag maps rounded out the package, and compared to the excellent "Unreal Tournament" (which was released just a week or two earlier) it all felt rather hollow. But since then developers id Software have been hard at work on a teamplay add-on for Quake 3, imaginatively titled "Quake III : Team Arena", and last night the demo was released.

It's not for the faint hearted, weighing in at a massive 120Mb and yet including only a single map. On the bright side that lone map is playable with any of the four teamplay mods included in Team Arena - Capture The Flag, Single Flag CTF, Harvester and Overlord. It also comes with two player models, each with a choice of two heads, one of the new weapons, three new power-ups, one new item, and a much-needed new HUD and interface. And although Team Arena will be an add-on, requiring the full version of Quake 3 to play it, the demo will work on its own even if you don't have a copy of the original game to hand.

You can download the demo from any of the following sites -
