    Phoronix: Alien Arena 2010 Coming "In A Few Weeks"

    While Alien Arena 2009 brought numerous improvements to this open-source game, John Diamond has been hard at work on Alien Arena 2010. We received a message from John saying this inaugural 2010 release will feature "a host of updates, new content and bugfixes." He also said the release will arrive in a matter of weeks. Though in anticipation of the Alien Arena 2010 release he has put out a trailer (embedded below) and also updated screenshots on this media page...

    Well either way, you're very far from the mark. You can dislike our work all you want, that's your right, but at least do some research before flaming off(or out, in this case )

Some people forget(or just don't know) that Alien Arena was actually released before any of the other FOSS games based on the id sources(August 2004).

    We've been working on some things that will make it more enticing for people to use. There is still a good deal of cleanup that needs to be done yet for that, as well as some things we need to support(such as a new skeletal model format we are implementing). There are some things in an experimental stage that will be very useful to modders/developers as well. It's all an ongoing process.

    So you should
    Graphically speaking AA is one of the best OSS games.

    Because I never heard it was released? No one ever told me... But now that I know, there should be a news post today.

    Fast paced DM FPS with good graphics and acceptable physics.
    It would have been nice if the gameplay would have evolved beyond pure DM/CTF (E.g. UT2K4 like assault / onslaught).

    Either way, keep up the good work.

    Well, there's AOA (which is DM with vehicles,) and TCA (Team Core Assault, much like a stripped-down super-fast super-simple Onslaught mode,) and both those can be mixed together as well. There's also CP (Cattle Prod, herding cattle through your team's goal,) but that one only has two maps.

    There are a few AOA or team AOA servers, usually called something like "space ships." Unfortunately, there aren't many TCA servers (just one that I know of,) which I think is too bad, but you can still host one and play with your team on it.
