Ominous beings known as the Vadrigar have created the Arena Eternal, a place where clans gather to annihilate their rivals. In
the beginning, warriors would decimate each other with little emphasis on teamwork; now warriors must band together for
Quake III: Team Arena is id Software's first expansion disc for Quake III Arena. Building upon the groundwork established by its
predecessor, Team Arena incorporates four team-based modes with new power-ups, weapons, character models, menu graphics
Among the included modes are Capture the Flag, One Flag CTF, Overlord and Harvester. The idea behind Capture the Flag is to
storm the opposition's base, grab their flag, and return it to your base. While this sounds like a relatively simple mission, there
are numerous warriors preventing you from obtaining the flag; additionally, the opposition will try and steal your team's flag. One
Flag CTF, on the other hand, features a central, white-colored flag. In order to score points, you must reach the central position
before the other team, take the flag, and return it to the home base.
Rather than focusing on multi-colored flags, teams in Overlord possess a skull-shaped obelisk. The obelisk must be destroyed to
receive points, and as you shoot the massive skull, points are drained. Carrying on the tradition of skulls, Harvester features a
skull generator located at the central portion of any given map. When players are killed, a skull representative of their team
appears in the generator. Winning involves collecting skulls of the rival team and unloading them at the enemy base. Players can
also eliminate the skulls of their teammates by running into them.
Quake III: Team Arena also comes with the 1.27 patch and numerous textures for would-be level makers. It should be noted that
the full-version of Quake III Arena must be installed on the hard drive in order for users to run the expansion pack.
