Quake Wars Beta

01 May 07

Can you feel the hype? Okay, perhaps it is a little early to be feeling entirely hyped about Quake Wars: Enemy Territories but nonetheless, the beta testing of this eagerly awaited multiplayer FPS will soon be under way. And of course, yours truly will be right at the forefront of the beta testing. Unfortunately, beta testers are not allowed to disclose any of the details of the testing (yes, the lovely yet dutiful staff over at Activision ensured that all beta-testers signed their names on the dotted line), and being the honourable person I am, I must honour this agreement. However, Game Console is on the case and as soon as I can divulge details, you - our lovely readers will be the first to know!
