“After months of testing, tweaking and balancing Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, I’m pleased to finally be able to say ‘It’s Done!’ We’ve had a ton of fun getting the game ready for the masses and I’m looking forward to seeing the massive battle for the top of the online leaderboards begin!” ( Todd Hollenshead, id Software CEO)

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars has been developed by Splash Damage. The game is set in 2065 and will put the player in the middle of conflict between Earth’s Global Defense Force (GDF) against the invading alien Strogg.
