Quake Live coming to Steam 'very, very soon'

Quake Live, a free-to-play first-person shooter from id Software, will show up on Steam "very, very soon," Bethesda Softworks vice president Pete Hines announced today at QuakeCon.

Further details on the game were not announced.

Quake Live was released in 2010. The title has since transitioned to a standalone downloadable game, dropping support for Linux and Mac and moving to Windows only. It's available for free, though players can choose to pay a subscription fee for access to more features and play modes.

The standalone launcher for Quake Live launched earlier this year.
