Download Nexuiz free first person shooter game
Nexuiz was developed by Alientrap Software as a project to create a high quality first person shooter that could be played freely. The engine that powered Nexuiz was Forest Hale’s Darkplaces, a significantly modified Quake engine. The first version was released in 2005, and development continued with many online contributors over the years, with version 2.5 released in October of 2009. Since its release it has been downloaded over 5 million times. Download and enjoy this classic version of Nexuiz.
Nexuiz features thirteen weapons, 24 official maps and over 240 community created maps, as well as 15 player models. The graphics in Nexuiz use coronas, the bloom shader effect, Realtime World and Dynamic Lighting and shadowing[clarification needed], shaders (with OpenGL 2.0), offset mapping, and High dynamic range rendering. All these effects can be turned off to make the game run on older hardware.
Nexuiz is primarily multiplayer (though it includes a full single-player campaign, which allows one to play through the various multiplayer game types and maps with bots), and allows for hosting and joining of games. It can also support new gametypes, or whole conversions quickly applied to it (much like Quake). Nexuiz supports most Quake modifications (although with varying functionality). Currently there are a few custom mods and maps used.
In the September 2006 issue of the magazine PC Gamer, Nexuiz was included in an article on Internet developers and free games impacting the industry. In 2009, Phoronix described version 2.5 of Nexuiz as the best open source FPS they had played, with refined gameplay and graphics that take advantage of modern hardware.
