False Dawn is set a number of years after the events of Quake 4, where you assume the role of the Most Unexceptional of a new breed of soldier, the Stroggified Marine. You can go where no regular human can and have been called upon to save humanity from the threat of a mysterious new super weapon developed by the vicious Strogg!
In celebration of Quakecon 2014 - False Dawn is out! It is available in two versions; a zip archive containing the mod directory and an installer that will detect either the retail or Steam version of Quake 4.

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 (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.
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.
Area unknown. No reliable intel available.
Now, go, download False Dawn and enjoy it.
