Post subject:  Enemy Territory Quake Wars

Set in the time before Quake 4, this game presents the events that occured before the human invasion of the Strogg home world. ETQW features the same, succesful, gameplay style and mechanics of its forefather, Wolfenstein Enemy Territory, the game all of us know and love.

ETQW features the new megatexture technology which makes large sclae maps an available option enabling crispt terrain graphics and a whole host of new features. ... ov&pl=game

ETQW, unlike WET is totally assymetrical. This means that a soldier from one side is not like the soldier in the other side. In this case anyway its a soldier versus an oppressor. All weaponsa re unique for both sides and gamestyle too is unique for every class and weapon.

Support classes are still available but are somewhat different for either side. A new feature is the deployables. Previously, in WET, crew mountable weapons only existed as preplaced map options - not they are deployable anytime, and anywhere to meet demand.

Something everyone would certainly like. Vehicles. Im sure you all already know about this so i wont delve much deeper into it.


The Question is: Will Enemy Territory Quake Wars live up to its much older, technology deprived, cousin Wolfenstein Enemy Territory?

I guess we will see very soon. Look out for ETQW anytime between the next month or two.

This one is certainly better, but do you think it will out live the one that started it all for class based teamarcade shooters with real objectives?

that depends. If it goes shareware/freeware after a while, along with open source, then by all means, yes. ET still has a few years left, though. but it might become like CS 1.6 and CS:S, where both live happily.

I wonder when the demo will come out >_>

Im not sure about the demo but i will get the email once it is close.

I believe that the the ten by next year will be:

HL (unmoveable)
HL2 (indefinite but losing ground to BF2)
BF2 (well still a good game, cant deny it)
ETQW (flexible as Quake4 is no worries)
BF2142 (better but not the best)
UT3 (due to technical reasons, pretty obvious though)
CoD4 (technical issues like the one above)

This leaves us with new benchmarks, Crysis, UT3, CoD4, and ETQW in order of expected requirements.

Why not? If someone managed to get Doom3 to run on Voodoo (looks like Quake2) then I suppose it is possible to get QW to run on something like GeForce2.

ioquake3 + tc 1.2 = Standalone Game

Technically true and against the EULA as I expect.
