Posted by , | Views: 3,563
After just over a year of silence the UFO2000 project has released a new version:

QuoteChange notes :

* Display enemy's points feature (Fomka)
* Linux version of ufo2000 game client does not depend on HawkNL library anymore (Siarhei Siamashka)
* Finnish translation (Tuomas Lähteenmäki)
* Various bug fixes (Siarhei Siamashka)

For those not familiar:
QuoteUFO2000 is free and opensource turn based tactical squad simulation multiplayer game. It is heavily inspired by the famous X-COM: UFO Defense game. While UFO2000 engine was specifically designed to be compatible with the graphics resources and maps from X-COM, you don't need any proprietary data files to play because a new fan-made set of graphics exists and is included in UFO2000 distribution by default (see screenshots), so the game is ready to run out of the box. But if you want an exact X-COM look and feel, you have an option of installing original X-COM and TFTD data files and use them for extending UFO2000 with additional maps, weapon sets and units.
