    Тактический боевик сталкивает в глобальном конфликте две сверхмощные армии. Действие игры разворачивается на Земле за полвека до событий Quake 2. Наша родная планета подверглась массированному вторжению строггов — воинственно настроенной расы инопланетных киборгов. Перед лицом смертельной опасности коалиционное правительство Земли сформировало армию для защиты от вторжения.

    Вступив в ряды Оборонительных Сил или варварской армады инопланетных захватчиков, игрок волен выбрать воинскую специальность из пяти классов. К его услугам солидный парк привычных и футуристических средств передвижения - квадроциклов, танков, инопланетных шагающих механизмов для эпических наземных сражений или вертолетов и антригавитационных летательных аппаратов для поддержки с воздуха, а также огромный выбор мобильных оборонительных сооружений и прочих достижений ратного дела будущего. Сражаясь с товарищами или выполняя задания в одиночку, игрок растет в звании, получает новые навыки и особые награды за командную игру.

    • Новый проект на основе движка Doom 3, разработка которого осуществляется при личном участии Джона Кармака.
    • Использование новаторской технологии Megatexture, которая позволяет детально воспроизводить огромные пространства.
    • Уникальный мультиплеер: четкое взаимодействие членов команды, выполняющих сложные многоступенчатые задания.
