Quake 4 Update

Activision sends along a single new Quake 4 screenshot, along with updated info on the upcoming shooter sequel in the works at Raven Software:

QUAKE 4 Updated Info.

Earth is under siege by an alien race. The Strogg are cybernetic warriors--a mechanical frame and decaying body parts stabilized by flesh consumed in a systematic annihilation of other species and civilizations. In a desperate attempt to survive a Strogg attack on Earth, an armada of Earth's finest warriors is sent to take the battle to the Strogg home planet. Earth's initial assault force is nearly annihilated immediately, but one marine manages to infiltrate the base, bring down their planetary defense systems, and kill the Strogg's collective brain and leader--the Makron. Earth assumed the destruction of the Makron would end it all, but it didn't.

That's where QUAKE II leaves off and QUAKE 4 begins.

The Strogg are quickly regrouping. However, with the Strogg’s planetary defenses still destroyed, Earth's forces can deliver a full and final assault. This time, you're not alone. You are Matthew Kane, an elite member of Rhino Squad, and part of Earth’s next invasion wave. An army of soldiers are fighting with you and an arsenal of weapons and vehicles are at your disposal in this heroic and epic battle between worlds.

AVP2. now that game had atmosphere. Multiplayer was none too shabby either. would put it up there in the best 5 shooters ive ever played. Farcry might be in there too btw ...

Agreed. The single-player aspect was astounding and the multi-player was pretty good as well. I gotta install that game again.

As long as there is a good multiplayer scene and I dont need a loan to upgrade my system to play it, I would give it a whirl.

Personally i think Q4 will play just like Q2 except with D3 graphics.

God, I hope so! Awesome!

Not if they slowly become tit burgers/chocolate digestives, or as a worst case scenario: Furry Tit Burgers. Had an experiance with the latter (FTB) and let me tell you, i was ever so slightly freaked out. I say ever so slightly, what i did was looked, froze, turned around, walked out the door, and just walked back to my room in a daze. Not nice.

Oh and i do remember Lithium Quake2. That was very good indeed. Although i do think the best mod for Q2 was Action Q2. Much better than the HL version of it.

Personally i think Q4 will play just like Q2 except with D3 graphics. Not necessarily a bad thing at all.

Just wondering though, are there any psycological horror FPS games out? Like a game thats basically the "Haunted Hotel" mission in Vampire: Bloodlines all the way through? I much prefer that sort of media where you dont have to see something scary to get scared, but instead theres a constant tension building with wierd noises, strange sights and just generally freaky things happening (that man with the axe walking slowly towards me freaked me out so much in the boiler room of the hotel).

at least bring back grappling hook CTF!

All I want is a damned updated version of lithium q2. It had the red beam grappling hook and the multi coloured powerups. I think I'm the only one that remembers this.

Might I also add the screenshot is 4000x3000? Can anyone's video card run that? I think not...


Shit...I was running that *at least* that resolution on my Thinkpad...."Can anyone's video card run that?" what are you talking about??

Because it'll run at lower res, you have the make the nipples bigger so they still show up at 1024x768. This is a basic tenet of game character design. Christ, you ignorant people.

No, this is my main gripe with the doom 3 engine, far too much relience on normal maps and facny effects and not on geometric detail.

The problem is, they do have more geometry than even the amazing realistic models in HL2.

Why then do they look so bumpy? Because everybody to date using the Doom3 engine feels the need to make cybernetic monsters! God damn it! This means that half the polygons are going to auxiliary stuff, like all the points and edges and crap that is on his body. If they made a normal human with normal clothes, it could look way freakin’ smoother. But even Doom3s normal humans faces looked like crap, because they had the body armor with all the odd geometry.


I am sure I will give it a play…I just wish somebody would try something different with the damn Doom3 engine for a change.

Talk about low poly, I swear you could count how many polygons are used in that character model by eye....

Perhaps that is compensation for the fact that Quake IV will probably employ battles of more than 4 characters at a time?
