Quake3 Engine to Become Open Source

John Carmack has announced that the popular and long-awaited Quake3 Engine will be released as open source soon. This will be an invaluable tool for (aspiring)game developers, and may mean user-based modifications, as bloom effects and shaders were added for the previous engines.


Commenting will be coming soon. In the meantime, feel free to create a discussion topic on the forums.
