Quake Wars coming to Mac

Aspyr Media today announced that it will publish id Software's Enemy Territory: Quake Wars for the Mac later this year. The much anticipated title is licensed by Activision and is being developed by its in-house Aspyr Studios game development team. Built using id Software's MegaTexture rendering technology, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars features strategic team play, persistent character promotions, and powerful weapons and vehicles in heroic objective-based battles as the Global Defense Force faces off against the alien Strogg invasion.

"Battles rage on stunning battlefields inspired by tropical, arctic, temperate, urban and desert locations both online and offline against lethal A.I. combatants," Aspyr said in its release. "With unmatched graphics, physics, networking, and story-driven military missions, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars transports players to the front lines of the ultimate war for Earth."

Players can choose to battle as one of five unique classes in either the human Global Defense Force (GDF) or the barbaric Strogg armies, each augmented with specialist weapons and combat hardware. Troops can utilize more than 40 conventional and futuristic vehicles, deployable structures, and defense systems like quad-bikes, tanks, and alien walkers for intense 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.

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars will soon be available for preorder through Aspyr's website. (Pricing was not available.)
