Nexuiz 2.4.2 Incremental Patch Released!


I opened my mail today and got a pleasant surprise: the folks at Alientrap have released version 2.4.2 of their freeware first-person shooter for the PC!

Gamespot's news updates sure are handy!

2.4 had a problem with client prediction that resulted in some players experiencing stutter-like glitches with the game. In the game's readme file, they have listed this glitch as one of those they have rectified with this release.

Gamespot's download page for Nexuiz. You think that screenshot is good? Wait 'til you play the game!

This should be exciting as the client prediction glitch aside, this PC first-person shooter game's engine is very light and --- if your rig can handle it --- has graphics that put most games to shame if its settings are turned way up. Hell, if its bump map settings are tweaked enough, it can look almost as good as Doom 3 IMO.

The 11th. 'Should have checked out their site more often. Tsk.

I have made an article about this game back when 2.4.0 was released. It can be found HERE. I've also made an article displaying several gameplay screenshots of the first-person shooter PC game HERE.
