1.2 Quake Wars update going live today

quakewarsdemoFor you Quake Wars fans, you’ll be happy to know that the master server will be down today in order to incorporate the new 1.2 update. The scheduled maintenance time is: 16:45 GMT to 17:15 GMT / 9:45 AM PST to 10:15 AM PST, so over here in EST, it appears the servers are still down.

If you forgot, the 1.2 update will include full voice communications support, better game balancing (a few weapons changes and increased experience points gained in certain areas), refined fire-teams (they’ll persist through rounds) and stopwatch mode, user interface improvements (more server browser options and others), bot fixes and plenty of miscellaneous bug fixes.

In addition, Splash Damage mentioned they’re currently working on the 1.3 update, along with final touches to the game’s SDK.

My review of Quake Wars was pretty favorable; but it was released during a turbulent gaming week and I haven’t had as much gaming hours on it since then. But with the patch coming out today, it certainly sounds like a good incentive to return.
