Xoreos Game Engine Does Its First Release
Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 28 July 2015 at 08:26 AM EDT. 6 Comments
The Xoreos project did their first release of this open-source game engine seeking to re-implement BioWare's Aurora Engine.

Xoreos has been in the works for a while and with this Aurora re-implementation it hopes to support games like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Neverwinter Nights. Before getting too excited about this Xoreos 0.0.2 release, this doesn't yet target end-users/gamers but is much more primitive for now.

As for where Xoreos is at right now, "You can start the game, xoreos loads the game resources, loads a campaign or module, and then shows an area of the game. This accurately demonstrates what the xoreos project wants to accomplish."

Those wishing to learn more about this first released milestone for Xoreos can visit the project at Xoreos.org.
