QUAKE 4 Universal application for Apple Mac OS X now shipping

Aspyr Media, Inc. announced today that it has begun shipping QUAKE 4, a Mac OS X Universal application, developed by Raven Software and produced by id Software, for Macintosh. QUAKE 4 will run natively on both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macintosh computers.

The long-awaited sequel to QUAKE II, QUAKE 4 enlists gamers in 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. Built on id Software’s revolutionary DOOM 3 technology, QUAKE 4 also features fast-paced multiplayer competition modeled after the speed, style and 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, http://www.aspyr.com/games.php/mac/quake4/

  1. Where would the USA be today if the settlers had played dominoes and card games instead of working? —- Games! it’s really amazing that so much time and energy is wasted on games.

    Half-Life 2, get a life. Wot a Larf.

  2. I have been playing Quake 4 since yesterday when it arrived.

    It’s a good game, it’s a lot like Doom3 but not as heavy on the graphics to slow my Nivida 6800 GT down like Doom3 did.

    There is a few scary things, but nowhere near as bad or wearing as Doom3.

    The bots are smarter, tend to keep out of your way better than other games which they fight alongside you.

    About halfway into the game you get caught and turned into a Stroog, before the neural implants. You can move faster, have more health etc.

    This game will not cripple your machine, if you can run UT2004 well, then it’s no problem, unlike Doom3 that really pushed the hardware.

    UT2004 gets a heck of a lot more time than Doom3 or Quake4 will ever get, because there are thousands of maps, mods etc. online that you can explore and play in. Also there are more than just one game in UT2004 and you can play online.

    Quake4 is a good first person, shoot em up, complete the missions type game, it’s worth the price for a few days of enjoyment.

    Recommend a G4 or G5 with a above stock video card. I also think this will play decently on a iMacTel.

    Best regards and happy fragging.
