and it looks a lot better than Doom 3, but at the same time: exactly like Doom 3.

I love the way it looks. It's getting pretty close to Quake 2.

Quote:
The story info is supplied by Eric Biessman, the project lead for the game:

Earth is under siege by an alien race. The Strogg are cybernetic warriors--a mechanical frame and decaying body parts stabilized by flesh consumed in a systematic annihilation of other species and civilizations. In a desperate attempt to survive a Strogg attack on Earth, an armada of Earth's finest warriors is sent to take the battle to the Strogg home planet. Earth's initial assault force is nearly annihilated immediately, but one marine manages to infiltrate the base, bring down their planetary defense systems, and kill the Strogg's collective brain and leader--the Makron. Earth assumed the destruction of the Makron would end it all, but it didn't.

That's where Quake II leaves off and Quake 4 begins.

The Strogg are quickly regrouping. However, with the Strogg's planetary defenses still destroyed, Earth's forces can deliver a full and final assault. This time, you're not alone. You are Matthew Kane, an elite member of Rhino Squad, and part of Earth's next invasion wave. An army of soldiers are fighting with you and an arsenal of weapons and vehicles are at your disposal in this heroic and epic battle between worlds.

Quake 4 will be using the Doom 3 engine from id Software and will be showcased at E3 this May along with the id sponsored QuakeCon event in August. While the event will be free to attend, registration for QuakeCon has now begun at the event's official web site

Ah man.. I nearly crapped my pants when I saw this thread. I was hoping for an actual "new" screenshot, but this one still looks damn good!

Possibly, although I have to say I'm looking forward to this one more than I did D3. Raven tends to do a good job of focusing on "gameplay" not just graphics.

I think it looks too much like Doom 3.

The background enviroment seems to be well within the Quake universe, but that monster just doesn't look good at all. I don't mean technically, but doesn't fit the Quake universe, looks like a second rate Far Cry enemy.
