Quake 4: Ltd Collectors Ed  (Special DVD Edition).

So you are a hardcore FPS gamer who has played it all through the ages of gaming? If that's the case you will have played and no doubt been owned many times in the Quake series. This series revolutionised lightning paced fps gaming from day one of its launch with a following second to none. Now id are doing it again with the 4th generation of Quake, it has been many years in the coming and by the looks of it, will neither disappoint in graphics or frenetic game play. DSE's software buyer took a sneak peak while attending E3 and was blown away by the graphics and nature of the demo she saw.

So what does the Ltd Edition include?

  • 2 DVDs: QUAKE 4 and Bonus DVD
  • Bonus DVD includes QUAKE II, QUAKE II Expansions "Reckoning and Ground Zero" and "Making of QUAKE 4" Bonus footage

Normally GHQ members would get a nice discount on the pre order of a title like this but upon discussion with DSE a special pre order price has been set across the board, so why have we banged it up on the site? That's because there are only 200 copies of the ltd Ed version available so you need to be in quick to secure your copy.
