QUAKE 4 PC TO HIT STORE SHELVES IN MID-OCTOBER

 

Mesquite, TX – October 3, 2005 – id Software™, Raven Software and Activision,
Inc. (Nasdaq:  ATVI) have confirmed Earth’s invasion of Stroggos with the
announcement that QUAKE 4™ PC has entered manufacturing and will
begin shipping to retail stores nationwide on Tuesday, October 18.  The long
awaited sequel to QUAKE II®, QUAKE 4 enlists gamers in
the role of Matthew Kane, a member of the Earth Defense Force’s legendary
Rhino Squad, to penetrate deep into the heart of the Strogg war machine and
engage in a series of heroic missions to destroy the barbaric alien race.

 

“On October 18, QUAKE is dialing it up to 4.0 on the Richter Scale with
this new chapter in Earth’s war against the Strogg,” said Todd Hollenshead,
CEO, id Software.  “Fusing an epic war-story driven single player campaign,
and fast-paced QUAKE III Arena® inspired multiplayer, QUAKE 4
delivers a gaming experience fans will be raving about for years.”

 

Developed by Raven Software and executive produced by id Software, QUAKE
4
begins only moments after the events of QUAKE II, with the
Earth’s fleet launching a massive offensive to the planet Stroggos.  As
Matthew Kane, an elite member of Rhino Squad, gamers invade the alien
stronghold, fighting alone, along side other Marines, and in mechanized
walkers and hover tanks as they encounter the Strogg and their disturbing
amalgamations of man and machine.  Built on id Software’s revolutionary
DOOM 3
® technology, QUAKE 4 also features fast-paced
multiplayer competition modeled after the speed style and feel of QUAKE III
Arena.
