Quake 4: Debut 360 image

Activision has belatedly confirmed that Quake 4 will be released for Xbox 360 (we kind of guessed as much after was shown on MTV last week).

More pertinently, however, the publisher has released one - count it! - screenshot from the game. As expected, blood, gore and massive weaponry all feature prominently.

"Quake 4 utilises the power of our groundbreaking Doom 3 engine to transport players into a war-torn, science-fiction universe graphically realised like never before," reckons Todd Hollenshead, CEO of Quake developer id Software.

"We're excited to bring the next generation experience to a new breed of console game fans."

A release date for either the PC or Xbox 360 version of Quake 4 has yet to be announced
