Xonotic preview 0.1 is released, this release is still a preview, which means that is not a stable release yet, in this release many things have progressed, both in features and graphics, one of the things that makes the game feel much more smooth is the change from 20 to 60 server frames per second, the entire weapon balance has been rewritten from scratch, and while the game still have the old weapons, some of them have been given entirely new functions, the menu theme has been updated and the options have been tuned to better reflect what values players are likely to change. Xonotic also features several remade and brand new maps.

About Xonotic:

Xonotic  is a free (GPL), fast-paced first-person shooter that works on Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. Xonotic is a direct successor of the Nexuiz Project. The game is a fork of Nexuiz (2.5.2) :

“The last release of Nexuiz (2.5.2) was on the first of October 2009, and when we decided to fork early March 2010 we continued where we had left off with Nexuiz. Large parts of the code, graphics and music have been redone  and have improved immensely.
