8:19 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story
Project lead Lee Vermeulen has announced the availability of Nexuiz, an online multiplayer FPS that has been in development for quite some time. The full package is available currently for Windows and Linux clients, with Mac OS X support coming in the next few days.
Nexuiz is a FPS that focuses on the multiplayer elements of the genre. The game engine and all assets are covered under the GPL license. The engine is also very modder friendly. This combination should provide the perfect platform for some great freely available modifications.
Nexuiz is built on the power of the Darkplaces engine, which is a heavily modified version of the original Quake. Darkplaces features realtime lighting and stencil shadows, bumpmapping, gloss, bloom, and totally rewritten network code that supports up to 64 players on a single server. While quality gameplay was our primary goal, it's graphics technology and artwork allows the game to compete with the current quality of commercial games.The download currently weighs in at about 161MB, and includes 17 maps, 28 playable characers, and 10 music tracks. Head over to the Nexuiz website for more information on this excellent looking shooter, and stay with IMG for more info on when the Mac client will be available.
