Quake 4 for Intel Macs available

Aspyr Media has begun shipping Quake 4. The company said the popular game is shipping as a Universal Binary with support for both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macintosh.

In QUAKE 4 gamers take on 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 Earth’s 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. Quake 4 is built using id Software’s DOOM 3 technology and the competition modeled after the feel of QUAKE III Arena.

The game is rated “M” for “Mature” by the ESRB. QUAKE 4 is available now for $49.99 through Aspyr’s Website.
