Quake Live leaves Beta Phase :(

ID throws a brick into the magic machine and comes out with two subscription packages to join the Quake Live free-to-play experience, well that seems to be the initial feeling about things. They are trying to make the transition smooth for those who want more updates and features, the Premium subscription will run 23.88 a year (1.99 a month) for the following.

  • 20 Premium only maps with more on the way, these include new maps and player requested maps from previous games
  • ‘Freeze Tag’ game mode
  • Exclusive premium level awards
  • Clan creation and recruitment
  • Custom Quake Live wallpaper
  • Match statistics stored for six months
  • Pro users get a step up paying $47.88 a year (3.99 a month)

  • Start your own game server, specify location and set your game mode and anyone who want to join
  • Invite up to three friends with standard/free memberships to play on any premium map
  • Exclusive Pro Awards
  • Create your own clan and join up to ten separate clans
  • Match statistics stored for 12 months
  • This also means that Pro users do inherit the perks from premium level accounts as well, no news is out if Pro players will get special maps of their own in the future. For double the price it seems like it should be the case.
