HaptX Team Release Mod For Enemy Territory: Quake Wars

Stockholm, Sweden November 19, 2008

The HaptX Team is pleased to announce its new Mod for Enemy Territory™: Quake Wars (ETQW), which makes ETQW compatible with the multi-awarded Falcon game controller. The HaptX Mod for ETQW is the ultimate online strategic shooter: an objective driven, class-based first person shooter set in the Quake universe. Two playable armies: each delivering a totally unique gameplay experience with distinctive technology, abilities, weapons, vehicles, and structures.

The ETQW HaptX Mod features the newly developed HaptX Force Balancing System™ which allows for stronger recoils with less camera shakes. This allows the player to experience even more intense action without ever losing aim.

The Enemy Territory™: Quake Wars HaptX Mod will further add to the intense online combat providing unique physical recoils and characteristics of all the weapons and the vehicles in the game. The player will also be able to feel the direction of enemy bullets and explosions, and a unique new tactile aim guide.

The HaptX Mod for ETQW brings a revolutionary high performance gaming experience to the Falcon gaming community.

The Mod is scheduled for release on the 21st of November, 2008.
