Macworld first brought readers news that Enemy Territory: Quake Wars was headed to the Mac in late April, but Aspyr Media made the news official with an announcement on Monday.
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is a new game in development from Splash Damage. It’ll be released for the PC by Activision, with Aspyr working on the Mac release. Aspyr said that the game will be released for the Mac later this year. Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB.
The spiritual successor to Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, a free online total conversion for Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is a team-based first person shooter set in the world of the Quake games, in which humans are pitted against the evil alien race known as the Strogg.
Players choose one of five unique classes in either the human Global Defense Force or the Strogg armies, each with their own array of specialist weapons and combat hardware. Teams fight for territory in tropical, arctic, temperate, urban and desert locations, and can play online or offline.
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars will feature more than three dozen different vehicles, deployable structures and defense systems — everything from quad-bikes and tanks to walkers, helicopters, anti-gravity ships and more. Teams establish bases, deploy defensive structures, artillery, radar and other objects in order to demolish the enemy and capture territory themselves.
Aspyr has not yet posted system requirements; the company usually does so a few weeks prior to the game’s release date. Enemy Territory: Quake Wars uses an enhanced version of the game engine that runs Doom 3 and Quake 4, however, so that may give gamers a very rough idea of what the system demands could be.
