Quake 4 ships
Aspyr Media today began shipping Quake 4 as a Universal Binary. The sequel to Quake II, Quake 4 enlists gamers in the role of Matthew Kane, a member of the legendary Rhino Squad, 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 Earthąs fleet launching a massive offensive to the planet Stroggos. As Matthew Kane, gamers invade the alien stronghold, fighting alone, along side other Marines, and in mechanized walkers and hover tanks as they encounter the Strogg and their disturbing amalgamations of man and machine. 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. Quake 4 is priced at $50, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
