Quake Wars demo lands on Live

Half-naked and with robot legs.

Microsoft has furnished Live Marketplace with a new demo for Enemy Territory: Quake Wars.

This is the Battlefield-like take on the famous shooter series where you choose to either be boring humans or the cyborg Strogg and then have a big fight with vehicles and tactics and things.

Quake creator id Software only had a supervising role in the project, with Splash Damage doing the bulk of the work for PC and Nerve Software tidying it up for console.

That desktop version came out last year and faired rather well, and ended-up notably more polished than the recently released console offerings.
