We’re very happy to announce our next official release of Xonotic! Xonotic version 0.7 is a massive step forward for the project. We’ve changed our team structure to bring in new development talent, and the result is a better platform on which to work. We’ve also been pushing hard development-wise since the last release, refining the game into something that we can all love. We have a staggering amount of changes since 0.6 aimed at both casual and competitive gamers. We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved in collaboration with our active, diverse community. We hope you enjoy it too!
Xonotic is a free and fast-paced first person shooter for Linux, Mac, and Windows. It combines addictive, arena-style gameplay with rapid movement and a wide array of weapons. Xonotic is available under the permissive GPLv2 license.
Xonotic is a direct successor of the Nexuiz project. It represents years of development from its humble beginnings as a Quake 1 engine modification, and now aims to be the best possible open source first person shooter available. It could be considered most similar to Unreal Tournament and Quake at its heart, especially regarding teamplay and game mechanics.
