Nexuiz 2.3 released
Two long, action-packed years have passed. Nexuiz fans witnessed several
releases, each of them a major improvement to the previous ones. Now,
exactly two years after the first public release, you can be part of a
new chapter in the history of Nexuiz. Today we proudly announce Nexuiz
2.3 to the world!
While Nexuiz has improved in all areas, it still stays true to its
mission to bring deathmatch back to the basics, with perfect weapon
balancing and fast paced action. The engine received a massive overhaul,
resulting in a huge performance increase in the 50-500% range and much
more smoother netplay. It runs faster, renders more beautiful,
introduces sharper effects and brings you even closer to the action than
ever before. Taking advantage of the improved engine, Alientrap and
contributors added new maps, retouched and rebalanced the guns and
reworked most texturing effects. The new maps, textures and general
additions to Nexuiz have almost tripled the file size since 1.0 and
almost doubled it since the last release 2.2.3.
Nexuix 2.3 brings along a new way for gamers to compete with each other
and measure their skills: the new team mode 'Keyhunt'. Moreover, the
online experience is enhanced by the new netcode, which also feels safer
as 2.3 sports an anti-wallhack function. The offline singleplayer
campaign offers improved, more human-like bots while the new maps add a
fresh thrill to both offline and online play. For a totally original way
to experience Nexuiz we created 'Nexuiz Pro', a server side mod that
drastically changes the physics and weapons. Do not shy away from its
name: it's just as fun for the young and old, for the new and
