Quake Live, the online fast-paced first-person Shooter from id Software will be dropping their own launcher in favor of a Steam one. Launched in 2010, Quake Live used to be a browser plugin, allowing players to play from the comfort of the browser, giving them easy access to their favorite game. In 2013 they dropped the browser option and moved to a launcher, so this move is not surprising.
So with this move, id will be replacing all the services with Steam Works alternatives. These include, in-game Achievements, Voice Chat, lobbies, and more. If you have not already made the move over to the Steam Client, now is the time.
