Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The Armchair Empire has posted a new preview of the upcoming Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. The game is an online multi-player, team-based shooter which will travel back in time to the Strogg invasion of Earth, the catalyst for the Quake series. The forces of Earth will face off against the evil Strogg in a violent struggle for survival, giving players the chance to aid either side in the battle for dominion of the planet.

Here players will be able to align themselves with either the humans or the Strogg, and once they’ve pledged their allegiances, they will have a selection of five character types to choose from while playing. The humans will have soldiers, field ops, engineers, medics, and covert ops, whereas the Strogg will sport aggressors, oppressors, constructors, and technicians.  While the Strogg class names are a tad ambiguous, their roles are very similar to that of the human classes listed previously.

The whole point of the game is for players to work as a team, slowly gain more territory, and hold it.  As this is going on, Quake Wars appears to be taking on some elements of the Battlefield series by gaining ranks, skills, and specializing over time.  How well players are able to work together will be key in winning here.
Aspyr Media is currently hard at work on the Mac version of the game. Click on the link below to read the rest of the preview and check out a few screenshots.
