For those of you who don't check Steam regularly or even have it installed the Enemy Territory Quake Wars demo is now available through the software delivery platform developed by Valve. The highly anticipated FPS looks to take over your hard drive territory as well. Reading the specs on it I found it requires 5GB open on the hard disk and another 700MB for the Windows swap file. But what are a few gigabytes, it's Quake we're talking about here.

Enemy Territory Quake Wars is the long-awaited return to the Quake universe. The game lets you play as the GDF or Strogg in one of five unique character
classes, either online or offline with computer controlled AI teammates and
opponents. The demo lets you experience one map and all character classes. 

  • Two playable armies, each delivering a totally unique
    gameplay experience, with distinctive technology, abilities, weapons, vehicles,
    and structures.
  • Combat focused on key Capture, Construct and Destroy
    objectives, but open-ended to allow limitless strategy and improvised missions
    and tactics.
  • Complete individual assignments and objectives to gain
    experience and rank during a single mission or an overarching campaign of three
    linked missions.
  • An array of land, sea, and air vehicles, with multiple
    combat positions including driver, gunner, passenger and even commander.
  • Unlimited strategic options with deployable Radar, Fire
    Support and Defense Turrets.
  • Cutting edge MegaTexture technology, where stunning
    visuals, realistic physics, and optimized networking combine to deliver an
    unparalleled online gaming experience.
  • Offline battles with lethal computer-controlled AI
    teammates and opponents.

So it looks like it's worth the installation time and surprisingly the hardware requirements aren't all that stout so there's no reason not to check it out. I am fairly certain that when I have 5GB free later this week I will be installing it as well.

Yes I believe I will be installing this later in the week. Now if I can just get CigDangle to do it as well I can waste him in it...
