Version 1.3 of the Red Eclipse first person shooter powered by the Cube 2 Engine has been released, which is dubbed the Galactic Edition.

As said in the release announcement, "This release sees a semi-stabilisation of the gameplay in favour of implementing a variety of bugfixes and user requests. We've removed some old cruft and implemented a few new game types to replace them, like coop (humans fight high powered bots), and king-of-the-hill (control and defend one flag). Due to the popularity of the impulse/parkour system we have introduced a new "impulse vaulting", where you can hold down your parkour key to "vault" over low obstacles, making it that much easier to navigate around busy levels."

Aside from impulse vaulting and other gameplay improvements, this Cube 2 powered game update has new weapon improvements, quite a number of new maps, interface/menu improvements, new mutators, improved modding assets, multi-player enhancements, and many bug-fixes.
