Steam is having its annual summer sale at the moment and for anyone looking to replay any of the old gems there are opportunities to pick them up at a quite great discount. The original Quake literally goes for a couple of dollars and there's also the Quake collection featuring various games and missionpacks in the Quake series. The Steam summer sale started on June 22nd (i.e. yesterday) and lasts until July 5th.

On this day, June 22nd, 21 years ago the first game in the Quake series was released to the masses. To celebrate this big day for the game that has most likely been a pretty big part of your life it is suggested that you either bake a cake, play the game and do some good ol' fashioned fragging.

Happy birthday Quake!

With the announcement of the QuakeWorld tournament at Dreamhack Summer 2017 coming with such a short notice it is fairly easy to forget that it is actually on during this very weekend. While the short notice is probably an obstacle for most players, there are some known names that will make it there to battle it out for the 15,000SEK prize. Read on for the full details on the event.

Update: event is now over, read on to find out who won!

It seems Dreamhack pulls a QuakeCon and reveals that the rumored "Quake" BYOC tournament during Dreamhack Summer in Jönköping, Sweden, between 17th-20th June (i.e. in two weeks' time...) is actually to feature Quake as in QuakeWorld and nothing else. The tournament form will be QW 1on1 with group stages and playoff. Prize purse is set to 15,000SEK (approx. $1650).

The Quake soundtrack recently popped up as a coming-soon article in the Nine Inch Nail online store. However you will be struggling to play it in your normal CD player as the release is for a vinyl edition of the soundtrack, which sounds like a nice item for the hardcore Quake fans/collectors to get.

The first three games in the Quake series are currently 60% off in the GOG (formerly Good Old Games) store, which may be a good opportunity for anyone who haven't paid their Quake taxes to Shub-Niggurath just yet.

For QuakeWorld in particular it's of interest as the popular nQuake package is based on the Shareware version of the game, leaving players with the deathmatch maps and the first episode of the singleplayer part of Quake. If one should buy the game off of GOG (or Steam etc) then one can copy pak1.pak into /nquake/id1/ for a complete version of the game.

xazqe reports in the forum that he has set up a couple of free for all servers as a nod to the long gone classic eDome servers. eDome traditionally had one small server with a mixed map rotation and a larger server with 16 players battling it out on death32c and this is clearly an attempt to rekindle that spirit.

There has been quite a bit of 4on4 activity in form of mix games after Qhlan, but the scene hasn't seen almost any official 4on4 games since the last EQL season. To fix that we're launching a new 4on4 ladder style league together with Dev right about now: enter Quakeworld 4on4 Ladder Tournament Season 1.
