Quake Wars to arrive on Xbox 360 and PS3
Who says PC games will never work on consoles?
It seems that traditionally PC developers have lately been upping the ante on their console offerings, especially with the new-gen consoles. In a not-so-surprising announcement, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars has been announced to be in development for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
“We’re pleased to be working with Nerve and Z-Axis to bring the highly-anticipated gameplay from Enemy Territory: Quake Wars to the Xbox 360 and PS3,” said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software.
Nerve Software and Z-Axis console versions will also feature strategic team play, persistent character promotions and online stats tracking. Players choose to battle as one of five unique classes in either the conventionally armed GDF army or the futuristic Strogg invasion force, each outfitted with specialist weapons and combat hardware. In this adrenaline pumping fight for survival, warring forces utilize a variety of different vehicles, deployable structures, and defense systems including quad-bikes, tanks, and alien walkers for epic ground assaults; or helicopters and anti-gravity ships to unleash airborne attacks. Throughout each battle, teams establish bases, deploy defense structures, artillery, radar, and advanced forward-command systems into enemy territory while constructing and demolishing obstacles to speed progress and gain a tactical advantage over the opponent. Enemy Territory: Quake Wars features 16-player battles on the console systems, delivering the ultimate team-and objective-based multiplayer experience.
That eases my mind a bit, considering I don’t own a gaming-worthy PC for now, but it’s good to see consoles getting a more diverse array of titles to choose from.
