Unvanquished FPS/RTS Hybrid Release Alpha 22 With A New Map

Posted by , 5 December 2013 at 7:49 pm UTC / 5394 views
Unvanquished is a fast-paced, futuristic FPS with RTS elements, pitting technologically advanced humans against hordes of highly adaptable aliens. The player can choose from either team, providing a fresh gameplay experience on both sides of the conflict.

They have released their 22nd alpha along with a quick bug-fix release 22.1 as well, lots has changed as usual since it's in such a volitile state of development, things like the jetpack no longer allowing you to hover and limited fuel, . They also have a new map titled Snowstation which looks cool:

They really need to make a new trailer to show off all their changes, it sure would spice up our article updates on it.

Frankly with natural selection 2 and Nuclear Down - I don't think this game is any more relevant.

Well it will be relevant to open source fans, besides what happens when those 2 games are no longer active by the developers? They die.

With a game like this other people can pop in and take over easily.

NS2 has frankly done a shit job with their Linux support, the game still has serious game stopping bug and the fixes are coming so slowly..

The main difference between Unvanquished, NS2 and Nuclear Dawn is that Unvanquished is the only one that does not require a single commander..
You can easily lose a game because your commander is bad even thou therest of the team is actually good... And many times nobody wants to be commander and the game cannot start without one (NS2).

Everyone can build in Unvanquished, and in an FPS perspective not a top down one.

I for one love to see Tremulous being resurrected in the form of Unvanquished.

Quote from dimkoFrankly with natural selection 2 and Nuclear Down - I don't think this game is any more relevant.
Read what everybody else has written. In addition, from what I've read, Nuclear Dawn's community is practically dead, and Natural Selection 2 is still a poor port. Unvanquished all the way for me. If Liam stopped reporting on these free, open source efforts simply because they lack scale compared to their proprietary counterparts, I would be highly disappointed.

So Natural Selection 2 is still not working properly on Linux? I got a copy free of charge from someone who really digs the game after I voiced my fears of it being a crap port. I am glad it was free, as the frequent crashing just confirmed my fears. That, plus I would rather give my money to free, open source efforts like Unvanquished.
