Quake 4 Mac requirements
Aspyr Medida today released the final system requirements of Quake 4, the long-awaited sequel to Quake II that enlists gamers in the role of Matthew Kane, a member of the legendary Rhino Squad. Quake 4 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later; a PowerPC G4, G5, or Intel-based chipset; a 1.67GHz or faster CPU; 512MB or higher of memory; and 64MB or more of video memory (VRAM). Built on id Software's DOOM 3 technology, Quake 4 also features fast-paced multiplayer competition modeled after the speed, style and feel of Quake III Arena. "As Matthew Kane, players attempt to penetrate deep into the heart of the Strogg war machine and engage in a series of heroic missions to destroy the barbaric alien race. Quake 4 begins only moments after the events of Quake II, with the Earth's fleet launching a massive offensive to the planet Stroggos." Quake 4 for Mac is available for pre-order for $50.
