Quake Wars

Aspyr Media has begun shipping id Software's Enemy Territory: Quake Wars for Mac OS X throughout North America. The game was built using id Software's MegaTexture rendering technology and features strategic team play, persistent character promotions, and an arsenal of weapons and vehicles in objective-based battles. "Battles rage on stunning battlefields inspired by tropical, arctic, temperate, urban and desert locations both online and offline against lethal A.I. combatants." Players choose to battle as one of five unique classes in either the human Global Defense Force (GDF) or the Strogg armies, each augmented with specialist weapons and combat hardware. Troops can use more than 40 vehicles, deployable structures, and defense systems like quad-bikes, tanks, and alien walkers.

Teams establish bases, deploy defense structures, artillery, radar, and forward-command systems into enemy territory while constructing and demolishing obstacles.

Quake Wars for Mac OS X is priced at $50.

    Is this properly ported or is it a Cider built game?
