Quake 3 Fortress 2.3 Due Soon
8:50 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

After several long months with no updates, the Quake 3 Fortress Team has finally updated their website with news on the next update. For those who've never heard of Quake 3 Fortress (Q3F), its a popular total conversion for Quake 3, which turns the game into a class-based game where players can choose from characters such as a sniper or an explosives expert. The update provides some info on what will be in the next version, along with showing some screen shots of new maps that will be included.

Here's the full update:

Almost seven months after our last news update, we're finally able to bring you news and screenshots of Q3F 2.3! It will be packed with ten new and updated maps from BirdDawg's Level Design Team which has remained busy. Head on over to the Levels page by clicking right here, for screenshots and descriptions of the brand new levels!

We hope to have a test build in the hands of Ghetto and our QA team with the next 1-2 weeks. The maps that are completely new to Q3F are Rock, Canalzone, Siege and Nocturne, while Smartbases 2, Chaos 3 and Sorrow have been ported from Beta 1H. Q3F 2.3 will also include updates to Cathedrals, Forts and Bases along with full PunkBuster support and a number of bug fixes.

As if perfectly timed, we have also been nominated as 'Mod of the Month' for May 2003's issue of PC Gamer in the States, who said "Q3F takes teamplay to a whole new level".

For more information on Q3F, or to download the latest version, follow the link provided below. For help getting Quake 3 Fortress up and running, follow the provided forum topic link.
