Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Announced for PC
8:10 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

id Software and Activision have announced that Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is in development now for the PC with developers Splash Damage. Splash Damage is the U.K. development house responsible for the original Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory game.

Quake Wars is an online multi-player, team-based shooter that pits the armies of Earth against the evil Strogg during the event that started the entire Quake series: the Strogg invasion of Earth.

As the invasion begins, players choose to battle as one of five unique classes in either the EDF (Earth Defense Force – humans) or the barbaric alien Strogg armies, each augmented with specialist weapons and combat hardware. Troops utilize over 40 conventional and futuristic vehicles, deployable structures, and defense systems like quad-bikes, tanks, and alien walkers for epic ground assaults; or helicopters and anti-gravity ships to lend firepower from the air. Throughout each battle, teams establish bases, deploy defense structures, artillery, radar, and advanced forward-command systems into enemy territory while constructing and demolishing obstacles to speed progress and gain a tactical advantage over the enemy.
The game, which utilizes id's new Mega Texture™ rendering technology and the Doom 3 engine, has not been announced for the Macintosh, but id Software has an impressive track-record when it comes to the Mac, so we'll keep an eye on this one. Head over to Splash Damage's website to read the press release about the game.
