“Timothee ‘TTimo’ Besset from id Software confirmed officially that the next sequel of the Quake series, Quake IV will be released for the Linux platform.
The dedicated server will be released around the same time as the Windows version. The linux client, might be delayed a week or two. Quake4 will use the Simple Direct Media Layer (SDL) backend for input and OpenGL on Linux.”
I only have one thing to say: I LOVE YOU ID SOFTWARE!!!
I’ve always loved the Quake series, it’s been one of my favourite PC games for years and years. I really enjoy playing Quake 3 at LAN parties, and what I really love about it, is that it has a native Linux version, and I’m very very happy to see that the long awaited Quake 4 will have that as well.
By the way, to you FreeBSD users out there, I think you guys are invited to this party as well! 😉
