The most influential Quake mod of all time is back

Threewave, the classic capture the flag mod for the original Quake, is back after 26 years. Bethesda announced it today (opens in a new tab) that nine levels from the original Threewave CTF mod, along with the grappling hook, special runes and other enhancements, have been brought back to life and added for free to the Quake remaster on Steam.

It’s hard to imagine now, but when Quake was originally released, it was very bare bones. Wood wave (opens in a new tab) was one of the first major mods to address the game’s shortcomings: developed by Zoid Kirsch, it was pretty basic in itself at first, but it offered the excitement of goal-oriented team play and, perhaps more importantly, a grappling hook that changed everything.
