In 1997 Quake II was released ending the Strogg's collective leader the Makron being killed. Quake III moves away from the Strogg, but the universe's worst cybernetic foes return in Quake IV, ready to be destroyed yet again by Earth's forces. Quake II left the Strogg home planet without its planetary defenses, leaving it open for your attack as part of Earth's new armada. You help deliver the final assault to the Strogg as Matthew Kane, member of an elite squad fighting along squadmates with vehicles and advanced weaponary.

Quake IV is based on the Doom III engine, although it is apparent that Quake IV will be a superior modding platform thanks to iD and Raven's efforts in optimizing the netcode, adding vehicles, and general fixes made to the engine since Doom III's release.

About False Dawn with 20 comments by little_gears on Jul 17th, 2014

Finally.

After years of development and wrestling with Quake 4, False Dawn is finally ready to be set loose in the wild.  Just in time for Quakecon 2014, you can now attempt to save the human race from the brink of extinction from a newer, more powerful Strogg foe.  This enemy seems familiar, but much has changed in the years since Cpl. Matthew Kane defeated the Makron and Destroyed the Strogg's communications Nexus.  Prepare for ~90-120 minutes of gameplay that will challenge not only brawn, but brains and reflexes.  

I must thank absolutely everybody involved in the development of False Dawn.  It's been a long road with many bumps, but we've made it.  Special mention must first go out to Sikkpin who contributed not only the amazing Sikkmod, but also a whole raft of custom effects and features specific to False Dawn.  Next up is Vlad 'Titan Slayer' Zhuravlyov, who has most kindly supplied the soundtrack for False Dawn.  He even produced a remix of a classic track from the Quake universe that is included somewhere in the mod.  I must also thank Gaute Rasmussen and Andy Nokes on their stellar jobs in voicing two of the three characters featured in the mod.  I can't speak highly enough of these fine gentlemen, without whom this project would have never been the same.

To wet your appetite prior to downloading the mod, I would like to quickly introduce the two other zones that make up the facility of False Dawn.

The Air Filtration Facility

The Air Filtration Facility (AFF) is the oldest and least reliable part of the Facility.  This is an issue due to the fact that the AFF houses Atmosphere Control which maintains the oxygen levels Facility wide.  If Atmosphere Control were to fail, it could potentially flood entire areas of the Facility with Toxic gas.

Air Filtration Facility - Entryway

The Nerve Centre

Very little is known Nerve Centre other than it controls all networking, security and logic systems within the Facility.  What is known however, is that unlike the rest of the Facility the Nerve Centre is kept in immaculate condition.  There are no flickering lights, or exposed wires to be seen here.  Surely such a vital area would not be without formidable protection.

Nerve Centre - Entry Lift

Area unknown.  No reliable intel available.

Now, go, download False Dawn and enjoy it.

They really should have made an expansion for this game, not to mention release the source code.

Nope.
My buddy from Belgium did buy it for me on steam since the uncut version is the only one that is worth playing online. You can look in certain gaming stores and ASK for the uncut version as they are not allowed to display it.
