I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for id software. Many of us were weaned on Doom on a 486, after all. id announced yesterday that they're bringing their awesome firepower to bear on the next generation console platforms like the PS 3. Quake Wars, anyone?
The war between the GDF and Strogg will soon be igniting on next-generation consoles as id Software and Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today confirmed that Enemy Territory: QUAKE WarsTM, the team-based first person action title, and already one of the most anticipated new properties of 2007 is coming to next-gen platforms. In this epic multiplayer-focused game, players can choose to defend humanity as a part of the Global Defense Force (GDF) or destroy it as a merciless Strogg alien invader. Under the executive production of id Software, Nerve Software is developing Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars for the Xbox 360TM video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, while Z-Axis is the developer for the PLAYSTATION(R)3 computer entertainment system.
