Developed by Splash Damage, the prequel to the futuristic wars in the QUAKE II storyline pits the armies of Earth's Global Defense Force (GDF) against the invading alien Strogg in the multiplayer action shooter that transports players to the front lines in the battle for Earth.

Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars takes place in the year 2065 and gives gamers the chance to play as the GDF or Strogg in one of five unique character classes, either online or offline with computer controlled AI teammates and opponents. Employing an arsenal of weapons, vehicles and deployable armaments, players engage in an action-packed test of skill and coordinated teamwork through a series of combat objectives. Persistent character growth and achievements reward players for teamwork, while clearly defined mission and class objectives guide new players to meaningful contributions on the battlefield.

Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars is also in development by Nerve Software for the Xbox 360TM video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and by Activision Foster City for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.

Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars for Windows PC is rated "T" by the ESRB and carries a suggested retail price of $49.99 for the regular edition and $59.99 for the Limited Collector's Edition. To learn more about the game and to secure a pre-ordered copy, visit http://www.enemyterritory.com.
