id Software and Activision announced today that the multiplayer features for QUAKE 4 will be revealed at the this year's QuakeCon.

As well as showing the new QUAKE featuers, QuakeCon 2005 will also be the first to show DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil for the Xbox.

The multiplayer side of QUAKE 4 will focus and improve upon the speed and style that was mastered in QUAKE III Arena and will have all the standard multiplayer modes including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Arena, CTF and Tournament and will allow players to fight for either the Strogg or Marine teams.

QuakeCon will also be giving fans an exclusive first look at the DOOM 3 expansion for the Xbox. Resurrection of Evil will be a stand-alone expansion for the console and will feature an updated story as well as new levels, monsters and weapons.

This is the QuakeCon's tenth year and is currently the largest and most notable video game celebration and tournament in the United States. It is said that it will be seeing over 6,000 attendees and is being held in Grapevine, Texas at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center from August 11-14.

Leftovers: Software Development

  • fakecloud
  • A new version of pristine-tar
  • Getting RSS feeds for news websites that don’t provide them
    On the technical side, this seems to be one of the most stable pieces of software I ever wrote. It never crashed or otherwise failed since I started running it, and fortunately I also didn’t have to update the HTML parsing code yet because of website changes. It’s written in Haskell, using the Scotty web framework, Cereal serialization library for storing the history of the past articles, http-conduit for fetching the websites, and html-conduit for parsing the HTML. Overall a very pleasant experience, thanks to the language being very convenient to write and preventing most silly mistakes at compile-time, and the high quality of the libraries.
  • Quick Highlight
    Martin Blanchard put together a new “quick highlight” plugin for Builder this last week. It was a great example of how to submit a new feature, so I just wanted to highlight it here. Post to bugzilla, attach a patch, and we will review quickly and help with any additional integration that might be necessary.
