Quake Live for Mac

Following its promise to expand Quake Live to new platforms, id Software is ready to launch the Mac and Linux versions on August 18th. The game follows the same concept as the first-person shooter Quake III Arena, although played through a browser instead of a dedicated installation. The company admitted in May that the Mac and Linux versions proved to be more difficult than initially expected.

Safari will not be supported at first for Mac users, but gamers will be able to use Firefox and Internet Explorer 7 or 8. Hardware requirements have not yet been announced, although the PC variant suggests at least a 2GHz processor and either a NVIDIA GeForce 7 Series, ATI Radeon X1800 or equivalent GPU.

The web-based service is still in beta stage for all platforms, while users can register to play for free. [via Macworld]
