Quake 4 is Ready: Release Date announced
Id software has finally finished Quake 4. It will begin shipping on October 18th and will go on sale October 19th, that’s a Wednesday in case you need to know which day you need to skip work, and it’s two weeks from this one!
Here’s a brief intro of the storyline (like a fun shoot-em-up ever needed one?) and what you can expect from the package:
QUAKE 4 begins only moments after the events of QUAKE II and enlists you in the role of Matthew Kane, a member of the Earth Defense Force’s legendary Rhino Squad, to penetrate deep into the heart of the Strogg war machine and engage in a series of missions to destroy the barbaric alien race.
QUAKE 4 also features fast-paced multiplayer competition modeled after the speed, feel, and style of QUAKE III Arena. It’s extremely addictive and has certainly rekindled some old rivalries here at the office. :)
In short, it’s everything that Quake 2 was, what Quake 3 should have been but with Doom 3’s graphics.
