9:36 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story
Quake III mod developers Silicone Ice Development are readying the new version of their Quake III total conversion mod Urban Terror for its release this Saturday.
The new version Beta 2.6 is being released with much fanfare:
To kick off the release party, Urban Radio will be taking to the Internet airwaves beginning at 1:00pm EST/10:00am PST with Oswald and Dragonne. We will be talking Beta 2.6, along with running a contest with a video card as the top prize, along with other swag we will be giving away, including cases of Bawls, T-shirts courtesy of GeekWearZ and gaming headsets. Join us for all the action in #urbanterror on irc.enterthegame.com.Urban Terror is a popular total conversion mod for Quake III Arena. Similar to Half-Life's Counter-Strike and Unreal Tournament's Tactical Operations, Urban Terror is a "realism" based modification that replaces Quake 3's whimsical other-wordly scenarios with realistic weapons, armor, locales, physics, damage system, player models, and more. Contrary to the typical Quake style of play, Urban Terror emphasises co-operative teamplay, stealth techniques, and strong communication skills amongst players.
The new version, weighing in at 60 megs for the update and a hefty 225 megs for the full download, will be available from the Silicone Ice website starting from 3:00 pm Eastern on Saturday.
