Xonotic Preview Release

Post by Tchernobog »

The Xonotic Project has finally shown that they a more than just talk, and have recently released their first preview release:

So has anyone played it? I was not a big fan of Nexuiz in the end, and that 1.3 GB download is enough to keep me from trying out Xonotic for now.

I played Nexuiz once just to try it out. I played against the bots and it was funny at times. Maybe I'll get this and try it out. :P

They are promising that it will improve upon Nexuiz, and graphically they seem to already have. I was not actually that large a fan of the original myself; it was fun to an extent, but it was basically a poor man's Unreal Tournament. And since I have always been more of a Quake fan than a UT player... :guns:

But still, it is one of our DarkPlaces brethren and deserves mention. Still more interested in Steel Storm in some ways though.
