At the company's QuakeCon keynote this evening, id software announced multiple separate deals, including its back catalog available through Valve's Steam, an ad-funded Quake Zero for the PC, and new information on the company's upcoming game Rage.

First confirmed by id CEO Todd Hollenshead was the fact that users of Valve's Steam service may download full versions of game including the complete Doom series and Quake I - III, including mission packs, as well as id's pioneering PC side-scroller, Commander Keen and vintage favorites Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of Destiny, Heretic, and HeXen. As part of the id Welcome Celebration on Steam, select id packages are being offered with a 10%, limited-time discount.

Id also confirmed two other extensions of one of its major existing franchises, with Quake Arena Arcade for Xbox 360 Live Arcade officially confirmed, and being developed by Pi Studios, and the web-browser based Quake Zero to debut for free in an advertising-supported format.

The company also showed Rage, its next internal project running on id Tech 5, the engine which John Carmack showcased at the recent Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, and apparently a driving-heavy title with impressive levels of detail.

In addition, the company confirmed that Enemy Territory: Quake Wars (pictured) for Windows PC will be on EU store shelves on September 28, 2007 and North American store shelves beginning October 2, 2007. The game is also in development for the Xbox 360, thanks to Nerve Software, and the PlayStation 3, thanks to Activision Foster City, with unspecified release dates.

Gamasutra will have more from the QuakeCon keynote, including more specifics from the Texas event, in the near future.
