Quake Wars gets some class

Activision and developer Splash Damage have released more information on the upcoming FPS Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, including backstory for the two warring sides and details of the character's classes.

Quake Wars is an online strategic shooter that pits the forces of Earth's Global Defence Force (GDF) against the invading Strogg forces. This is no ordinary team deathmatch, though, as the key to success means establishing bases, taking out defensive structures and using numerous futuristic vehicles to out-maneuver your opponents.

The GDF was established in the 21st century, when numerous national armies came together to fight terrorism and help in times of natural disaster. This "world army" is the only organization equipped to deal with the Strogg threat.
