This is one of those times where everyone just turned around and went, "wait...where'd that game go?" It's Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, and while we heard a whole lot about this promising title late last year, it mysteriously dropped off the radar for a few months.
Well, it's back. According to IGN, Activision has finally revealed a release date for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of this promising shooter: it'll hit stores on May 30. The PC version has already been available for quite some time now, so console players have been itching to get their hands on it. If you're not too familiar with the game (heck, you might've forgotten), here's a brief description:
"Experience the ultimate team and mission-based online warfare, defined by the acclaimed Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, now set in the legendary QUAKE universe. Choose to play as the human Global Defense Forces or the invading alien menace, the Strogg. Each side has distinct classes, vehicles, and weapons to choose from, giving players countless ways to join the battle."
With all the enemies, vehicles, and interesting terrain present in Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, this could be one of the best console titles of 2008. Of course, the competition will be stiff...but then again, it's always stiff these days. Head back our way again at the end of May to check out our review.
