Enemy Territory: Quake Wars pits the armies of Earth’s Global Defense Force (GDF) against the invading alien menace called the Strogg. Set in the Quake universe in the year 2065, this team- and mission-based multiplayer game has distinct classes, vehicles and weapons, letting players decide how they want to play the game.
As a strategic team-based game, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars requires players to work together as a team to defeat the enemy and achieve objectives — which they can do online against other players or offline against AI bots.
