Europe to see the goods firstid Software and Activision have announced Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars for the PC will hit European shelves on September 28, 2007 and North American store shelves beginning October 2, 2007... which is sure to piss off our US cousins no end...
The game, which is in development by Splash Damage, pits the armies of Earth’s Global Defense Force (GDF) against the invading alien Strogg in the multiplayer strategic shooter that transports players to the front lines of an epic new war for Earth.
Offering objective-based multiplayer action either online or offline with bots, Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars is set within the expansive QUAKE universe in the year 2065. Gamers can choose to play as the human GDF or alien Strogg in one of five unique character classes. Employing an arsenal of weapons, vehicles and deployable armaments, players engage in an action-packed test of skill and coordinated teamwork through a series of combat objectives. Persistent character growth and achievements reward players for teamwork, while clearly defined mission and class objectives guide new players to meaningful contributions on the battlefield.
Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars is also in development for the Xbox 360 by Nerve Software and also for the PS3 by Activision Foster City but no dates have been confirmed for release as yet.
