Quake Arena Arcade Frags XBLA Next Week


Fun fraggin’ times are only a few days away for Xbox 360 owners, as Quake Arena Arcade, an updated spin on the old PC FPS hit Quake III: Arena, has finally been confirmed for Xbox Live Arcade release after years of development.

Quake Arena Arcade, coming to XBLA next Wednesday, December 15 courtesy of id Software and Bethesda Softworks, will feature a brand new single player campaign, HD and Widescreen support for enhanced graphics and presentation, and 16-player competitive online play with six match types, 30 classic Quake maps and 12 all-new maps exclusive to Xbox 360. Pricing has not yet been announced, but I would expect it to fall within the standard XBLA pricing range of 800-1,200 MS Points ($10-15).

I’m currently working on a downloadable game holiday buyer’s guide, and will have a review code coming in from BethSoft soon. So check back next week for my thoughts on Quake Arena Arcade and the rest of my top downloadable game picks. Busy weekend ahead for me!
