Activision heeft een press release gepost waarin het z'n kerst releases bekend maakt. Onder de games bevindt zich ook Quake 3 Arena:
A technological masterpiece of vision, sound, and nerve jarring fun forged by the masters of gaming at id Software, Quake III Arena transports players to a dark underworld where the greatest warriors of all time lock horns in no holds bared combat. As one of these warriors you must try to rise through the ranks by defeating your enemies. Win and you'll move onto greater battles and glory; lose and you're a pile of charred flesh.
Played from a first person perspective in a beautifully rendered 3-D environment, gamers will hunt their opponents through darkened gothic cathedrals and ominous organic caverns. Plasmas against rockets, machine guns against rail guns, Quake III Arena offers players the most visceral experience yet seen in a computer game and raises the bar for all other games that follow. In both single player and multiplayer action, Quake III Arena is the quintessential game. Windows® 95/98. (Suggested Retail Price: $49.95)
