DOOM, HeXen, and QUAKE Come to Steam

quakeStarting today, Steam users will be able to download full versions of the complete DOOM series and QUAKE I – III, including mission packs, as well as Commander Keen, Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of Destiny, Heretic, and HeXen. These releases are part of the id Software “Welcome Celebration” on Steam, and select id packages are being offered with a 10%, limited-time discount thanks to id Sofware and Valve who are apparently in a very good mood due to the success of this year’s QuakeCon.

“Valve pioneered digital delivery of video games with Steam,” said Todd Hollenshead, CEO of id Software. “As a game developer themselves, Valve understands what developers and game players want and need in an online distribution system, and Steam delivers.”

“We can’t overstate our admiration for id, its games, and the technical advancements the company has delivered to help move the industry forward during the past 15 years,” said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. “Like many other studios, Valve was born when we licensed the QUAKE engine to build our first game. We’re proud to welcome id to Steam and give people around the world an easy way to play the games that have inspired everyone here at Valve.”

“the quake II mission packs cost as much as quake II, what a rip”

The relatively high individual prices of these games on Steam are not the only thing that is a “rip” about them. These Steam versions of the games are basically “rips” (not full versions) because they don’t contain the audio CD tracks (for the games that have them such as Quake 1 and its two expansions packs, Quake II and its expansion packs, and Hexen 2) and the CD keys needed for online play (for the games that require them such as Doom 3 and its expansion pack, RTCW, Quake 3 and Team Arena). If you want a full version of the games, find copies on physical media.
