Developer: ID Software
File type: Quake III Engine Zipped File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pk3. Files with the file extension .pk3 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pk3 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pk3 file?

A Quake III engine zipped file is generally classified as a compressed file that is used by the Quake III video game among other digital video games developed for computers running on Microsoft Windows-based systems. This means a Quake III engine zipped file may contain one or more files stored in the MD3 format, the successor of the MD2 file format which was implemented into program files used in the Quake II video game. Files in the MD3 file format are encoded and compressed with better digital 3-dimensional animation specifications that are in turn integrated with vertex movement technology and a feature where these 3-dimensional animated objects are divided into three parts, with each treated as a separate 3D element to maximize its animated movement and efficiency. These Quake III engine zipped files are stored in the PK3 file format and are appended with the .pk3 extension.

how to open a .pk3 file?

Launch a .pk3 file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .pk3 file will open it.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .pk3. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
