A New Linux Game Update For The Holidays
While we continue to be taken away by Unigine OilRush and other projects, for those without access to these new titles and not impressed by the recent Humble Indie Bundle #2 or Zero Ballistics 2, there is a new alternative: Warsow 0.6.
Warsow 0.5 was released in August of 2009 but this Qfusion-powered first person shooter (and Phoronix Test Suite benchmark) is now being succeeded by Warsow 0.6.
Warsow 0.6 delivers on a number of new game maps, improvements to existing maps for improved visuals and other restyling, brand new weapon models for a more unified and modern appearance, a new game type, and new music. The new game type is Capture The Flag - Tactics.
Besides in-game improvements, Warsow 0.6 has an updated engine that delivers on more realistic lighting along with other improvements along with lower-latency network code and higher frame-rates due to engine performance optimizations.
The release announcement and download links can be found at Warsow.net.
