Id Software has released some pictures of the first new map which will be added to quakelive in the near future, in what they call their "6 new maps in 6 weeks" campaign. The other five maps will be a mixture of brandnew and classic remake maps.
The map is called Hidden Fortress, and was originally a part of the sega dreamcast version of quake 3. According to the blurb the conversion is a medium sized map with three main rooms - perfect for 6-10 player team deathmatch, clan arena and free for all gameplay.
The quake 3 sega dreamcast mappack for pc, played with the old patch 1.16n, allowed to connect dreamcast and pc players to played against each other. the pack contained 2 new ffa maps, "Hidden Fortress" dc_07 and dc_15 "Gaze of the Abyss". Hidden was the better one, i can remember.
q3 remake standalone versions of both maps are released along time ago.
Psion version Hidden Fortress :: BerneyBoy version Gaze of the Abyss
old dc mappack :: dc mappack, LvL Edition comes with a shader fix
