id announced it at quakecon. good stuff.
Any screenies yet? Will they be rewriting the engine or just building on the existing one?
no screenies. they said that quake 4 will be released after Doom 3 and it will use a variant of the Doom 3 engine. It will take place where Quake 2 left off... in other words it isn't a pure arena style game like quake 3.
You mean that game actually had a storyline ?
time to buy ANOTHer new computer maybe a mac this time ;D
Quake 4 is being done by Raven using the Doom 3 engine. And I doubt its coming out for a while, considering it was just announced. I doubt any consumer computer existing now would be able to run it or Doom 3 well, considering that it was said (i think) that a GeForce 3 would net you 30 fps in doom 3.
raven!!!! SOF=bloodiest game in existance
Quake 4? That could be bad or good. I think the only great game was the original. Id ****ed up from there. But that's just my humble opinion...
quake 3 = very clean graphics engine, very realistic in a virtual sort of way.
quake 4 will use the doom 3 engine which will bring a realistic graphics engine to the deathmatch genre. remember the macworld japan keynote earlier this year? the doom 3 character models and enviroments and lighting effects? oh baby!
Well I'll have a new computer by then. No way in hell my old g3 500 B+W will be able to run it since I'm assuming it will need os x following after Doom 3's footsteps.
Get me a nice dual 800. That should do it.
you interested in selling your current machine? if so, what are the specs?
You don't sell macs!
Everyone knows that unless you're really hard off you keep every mac. I still have every one that I've had.
Anyways, I'm waiting until after the next MWNY to get my comp.
That way they'll be a revision at MWSF and then another at MWNY. By then we might even be into the G5s.
They will? You mean there's going to be a new CEO?
We're talking about G4s here, not CEOs.
