    Default A New Alien Arena Linux Game Is Coming Soon

    Phoronix: A New Alien Arena Linux Game Is Coming Soon

    To be released soon is the Alien Arena 7.66 game update, but more interesting than this small update that just provides minor optimizations and an overhauled menu system, is the introduction of a new Alien Arena game. Alien Arena: Tactical is the new CRX-powered open-source game...

    well this sold me

    First, and foremost, we are about to release an offshoot game of Alien Arena, known as Alien Arena: Tactical. This game creates sort of a hybrid of a tactical military shooter, and the classic faster-paced FPS games. In a couple of weeks we will release what we consider to be an Alpha of this new game. It will include one level, and most of the features that we originally planned and intend to include. This game is class based, which each class having different capabilities, and requiring them to work together to have the most success. Some classes can plant bombs, some can detonate them, some spawn with a super-weapon, etc. Different health and armor statistics for each class are also included. The game pits humans against aliens, in an all-out war to destroy the others base. Each base has three key components, and each of these components have sub-components that either aid in defending the base, or aid another component in the event of failure/destruction. Movement is slower than classic deathmatch Alien Arena, but still uses the same physics and principals. Players can only pick up one weapon at a time, other than their starting weapon and bomb kit. Teamwork is completely essential in this game.

    sounds like UrbanTerror bomb mode with classes to me.

    t's a team based game pitting humans against aliens, in a struggle to destroy the other's bases. Each team has multiple class types, each with different abilities. Some can plant bombs, some can detonate them, others spawn with super weapons and can disarm bombs
    (from the forum article): Well, that sounds more interesting...

    Can't really say it would be CS clone. It is pretty different. Also, the server is better than typical CS server.
