Eye of the Black Gun
24th June 2006
With the release of Alien Arena 2007 only a couple of weeks away, COR Entertainment has released a video and nine new screenshots of the updated FPS shooter in the media section @ http://red.planetarena.org
AA2k7 features so many new features and content that it barely resembles the original release of Alien Arena 2006 from last November. Nearly all new maps, with amazing levels of detail and complexity, new weapons, characters, game modes, all round out what has nearly been a complete overhaul of the game that is surely to appease the hardcore gamers, and yet still be friendly to newcomers to the genre. Now powered by version 6.0 of the CRX engine, AA2k7 features plenty of flashy eyecandy such as realtime shadows, lens flares, reflective surfaces, shaders, textured particle system, stainmaps, vastly improved lighting, and fun game features such as weapon accuracy tracking, grapple hook, six game mutators, and much more. New optimizations allow all of these new features to run even faster and smoother than ever, even on modest gaming systems.
One of the most anticipated features will be the new Team Core Assault game mode, a team based, strategic mode of gameplay that is extremely fast paced and challenging even to the very best players.
Alien Arena also includes an interactive external server browser with a built in IRC client that takes you right to the community for help solving problems, or just chatting with members, a level editor, and global stats tracking.
