'Quake 4' Seismic Showdown Tournament

by Rainier on Dec. 9, 2005 @ 10:00 a.m. PST

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 top four players will advance to the semifinals on Friday, December 16, and the winners will then face off in the finals where the ultimate GameSpot QUAKE 4 champion will be crowned. Every match on Friday will be shown LIVE on Tournament TV, featuring commentary by Ryan Mac Donald and Rich Gallup. GameSpot will be giving away cool prizes, including QUAKE 4 t-shirts and NVIDIA graphics cards to some lucky viewers.

The first place winner will receive $750, with the chance to win another $250 in the PRO GAMER CHALLENGE if he/she can beat Kornelia Takacs – a professional QUAKE player, in a single 1-on-1 Deathmatch game. The second winner will receive $500 and the third and fourth place winners will each receive $250.
