Alien Arena 7.31 was released just earlier this month
and it brought improved shadow volumes, vertex buffer object management, sound improvements, new weather effects, and other improvements to this open-source first-person shooter. While this update was significant to Alien Arena gamers, today it has been outdone by Alien Arena 7.32.
The Alien Arena 7.32 update brings dynamic world shadows using shadowmaps, a new game map (dm-zion2k9), splash damage now triggers hit indicator sound, and there are new spawn effects. Also brought is a bug-fix for the latest NVIDIA graphics drivers. The next major Alien Arena update is expected in the first half of 2010.
