It's not WW2 this time. It's the futuristic Quake 4 environment. Get ready!

As the invasion begins, players choose to battle as one of five unique classes in either the EDF (Earth Defense Force – humans) or the barbaric alien Strogg armies, each augmented with specialist weapons and combat hardware. Troops utilize over 40 conventional and futuristic vehicles, deployable structures, and defense systems like quad-bikes, tanks, and alien walkers for epic ground assaults; or helicopters and anti-gravity ships to lend firepower from the air. Throughout each battle, teams establish bases, deploy defense structures, artillery, radar, and advanced forward-command systems into enemy territory while constructing and demolishing obstacles to speed progress and gain a tactical advantage over the enemy. With realistic dynamic lighting and shadowing from headlights, searchlights and even the moon, battles can be fought during the day or night; while accurate simulation of the atmosphere, weather, and vegetation combine to create an unparalleled degree of realism. Battlefields are perfectly rendered using MegaTexture, a totally new rendering technology developed by id Software that crunches millions of polygons and a gigabyte-scale texture into a single, seamless and un-tiled landscape with unique detail down to the square inch or the un-obscured distant horizon.

Players can take on class specific missions or join a fireteam to utilize advanced command and communication options, including voice-chat and the game’s context sensitive mission order system. With bitterly contested multi-battle campaigns, each soldier fights not only for victory, but to gain valuable skills, special rewards for team-play, and persistent military promotions and medals.

Polish game magazine CD-Action have published an interview with John Carmark.

I call it an interview, but it's really him talking non-stop for half an hour about iD Tech 5, Enemy Territory, Rage, Doom 4, and, from 1:26 in the third video, why he thinks that the golden age of modding has already passed by:

And while you're here, don't miss the four new Rage screenshots from SIGGRAPH 2009:

"It's the futuristic Quake 4 environment." I stroggly disagree with this statement in the description. ETQW's timeline is based before Quake 2 when the Strogg first invaded Earth and not during Quake 2 nor Quake 4.

Quake 2 and 4 are based around when the Humans decided to attack the Strogg and stop them completely directly at their source on the Strogg's home planet.

Some of the human vehicles such as the Armadillo and that van thing were originally in Quake 4 as wreckage's.

The Xbox one seems to be dumbed down, like no 1st person pilot view or the APC being a missile armed tank and nothing else.
So, does the PC version have more capabilities than console?

The first online class based shooter I have ever played and I loved it, a shame it is dead already though.

Just a note for anyone looking to find Quake Wars - Steam was the last place selling copies and they pulled it.

Anyone trying to establish online registration at this point are out of luck as the website to do so seems to be taken down.

Bots are pretty decent offline SoL for multi-player against real players.

I'm getting a very odd error in this game for linux. When in game, my player would just spin around, as if the forward movement key was held and the mouse was leaning to the left. Is there any way to fix this?

Maybe a stupid question, but where can I actually get this (for Linux)? And are there still players around and does the thing still work or is it glitchy like the Wolfenstein:ET?
