After seven years, Quake 4 is headed (back) to Xbox 360! Sure, it's not the rumoured PS3 version, and the game is technically playable on Microsoft's console, but for gamers who missed out on game back in the day (or who just want a little stroll down Memory Lane), Bethesda has come through with the goods.
Originally published back in 2005, Quake 4 was a launch title for the then-shiny-new Xbox 360. Developed by id Software, the game was published by Activision. Several years later, the two companies parted ways, and now new parent company Bethesda would like to remind you of its existence. (Arguably, this can only get people more interested in the franchise... but the first rule of Quake 5 is that you do not talk about Quake 5.)
Quake 4 will be (re)hitting the Xbox 360 on June 19th around the world - but double-check your location if you're in Europe. The game's only scheduled to arrive in the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Benelux - if you're outside of those, you're going to miss out.
I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
