As we posted last week, the November issue of PC Gamer is featuring a preview of Quake 4 (the UK PC Zone magazine has a preview as well). The issue hits newsstands September 21 but it looks like subscribers are starting to get it already. Here's a few tidbits from the preview
- Quake 4 is a direct sequel to Quake 2, takes place just hours after the event of that game. - During most of the game, you are fighting with other marines, however there will be solo missions. - Some missions take place inside, others outside. You'll get to use vehicles at times. - You're part of a military campaign attacking the Strogg homeworld. - Returning weapons so far: blaster, machine gun, nailgun, shotgun. - Multiplayer: "The multiplayer experience is more akin to Quake III: Arena", no vehicles. - "With Doom 3 it was horror. With Quake IV, it's war."Be sure to grab PC Gamer to read the entire 10 page preview and check the screenshots. Do not post scans in this thread.
