Enemy Territory is coming
In late May we reported that Aspyr Media plans to publish id Software's Enemy Territory: Quake Wars for the Mac in the second half of 2007. During this week's E3 conference, the title was rumored have received a shipping month of August. Aspyr Media however clarified that no shipping date has been set for the Mac version of the game, but that the title is still under development. Enemy Territory is licensed by Activision and is being developed by its in-house Aspyr Studios game development team. The game is built using id Software's MegaTexture rendering technology, featuring 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.

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.
System requirements have not yet been announced, but will be released 4-6 weeks before shipment.
