First announced at QuakeCon 2007 as "Quake Zero" then subsequently renamed, id Software's Quake Live is apparently set to debut as a public beta test. As Joystiq reports, id has started accepting sign-ups for the Quake Live beta by allowing users to enter their e-mail addresses on the upcoming game's website. The sign-up page says testers will "[be] given early access to the QUAKE LIVE website and game, and will help [id Software]test all of the game's features and functionality while offering feedback and suggestions."
According to a Shacknews report written in the aftermath of the QuakeCon announcement, Quake Live is being put together by a new development team at id Software. The game will be a "slightly updated version of Quake 3" that gamers will be able to play on PCs and Macs alike straight from their web browser. What's more, the title will be free of charge, with id Software planning to support it via advertising.
