Quakemas Quake 4 Map Pack

A new "Quakemas" (wait until Bill O'Reilly hears this one!) map pack is now available for Quake 4, Raven Software's recently released installment in the science fiction shooter series. 3D Downloads, 3D Gamers, Computer Games, FileFront, Gameguru Mania, GameSpot (registration required),, VGPro, and Worthplaying. Word is:

Mesquite, TX – December 20, 2005 – Shaking up the holiday season with a trio of aftershocks, id Software™, Raven Software and Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) have released the Quakemas Map Pack - three new downloadable maps for QUAKE 4™ on the PC. The maps—Railed, Tremors, and Campground Redux—offer all-new gameplay environments for more fast-paced, intense multiplayer combat. These latest maps are now available for free download at

Railed – Set in an abandoned, rusting Strogg facility, the environment in Railed produces fast paced frenetic tournament action. This new map is all about close-quarters combat and hair-trigger reflexes as players hustle through the winding, multi-tiered corridors. Designed particularly for tournament play, Railed also supports Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch game modes, and is guaranteed to provide some thrilling fast-action gameplay.

Tremors – Built within a twisting underground cavern and peppered throughout with pipes, bridges, and catwalks, Tremors demands tactical expertise. Enemies attack from above and below in the enormous, multi-tiered environment, making team-play invaluable. Tremors is perfect for huge Capture-The-Flag games, and also supports the Arena Capture-The-Flag gameplay mode.

Campgrounds Redux – With QUAKE 4’s updated technology, Campgrounds Redux now has a fresh look and feel, revitalizing this QUAKE III classic. Excellent for any number of players, this updated version supports Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Tournament modes, where hard-core QUAKE fans can get crazy with this throw-back to one of their old favorites.

Yeah, well even the modding community is slowly moving over to F.E.A.R. Quake 4 was great but the expections for impovements and innovation aren't enough to keep the game alive.

Why? FEAR doesn't really offer any original gameplay either...

Not to mention, at this time Quake 4 has 1581 servers and 1023 players, compared to FEAR, with 339 servers and 360 players.

Yeah, that looks really promising for modders who have moved over to FEAR. /sarcasm

I don't play video games... I play murder simulators.
