It was a year and a half ago that Nexuiz was forked into Xonotic following some changes by core Nexuiz developers that effectively sold off the Nexuiz brand in order for an Xbox 360 re-make. In time for Christmas of 2010 they then did a v0.1 preview release of Xonotic and then came their first birthday without a new release. However, the Xonotic developers are now out with a major new release. Xonotic v0.5 is this new version and it boasts some radical changes as it becomes primed for a stable release.


Among the changes in Xonotic 0.5 is multi-language support, new and updated maps, support for vehicles, and weapons and player movement enhancements. Xonotic 0.5 has seven new maps, completely rethought weapon balance, and improvements to player physics. The initial support for vehicles is still considered experimental, but good progress has been made and driving around various Xonotic vehicles can be done in different community-created CTF (Capture The Flag) and DM (Deathmatch) maps.
