Alpha version of Warxon game is released.
This is the first public release of Warxon and its purpose is to provide playable and complete version of game suitable for gameplay testing. Content of the game is temporary and mostly borrowed from such free games as Nexuiz classic, Open Arena and Xonotic.
Warxon Alpha is using latest version of Qfusion 3D GPL engine and has many features needed for competitive playing. Even though final release aims to replace most of the content with modern hi-quality assets, Alpha version is packed with highest quality free content available and should provide enjoyable experience while testing such an early version of game. Alpha release aims to be stable enough to be reliably used for online cups.
Warxon is a multiplayer FPS game that is currently in the early stages of development. We aim to bring the community a new ESports title that will ressurect the FPS scene. Gameplay will be movement based with endless action and intense close range fights that allow for unlimited possibilities for skill growth.
The Warxon project is reliant upon the community. Our ultimate goal is to create a thriving community and bring a breath of fresh air into the competitive FPS scene and to provide the best possible experience for both casual and pro players.
Qfusion engine used in Warxon has being polished for many years powering community game Warsow, perfectly suiting its ESports related demands and cartoonish 3D style. But its capabilities are way beyond of that and planned to be extended to be in line with most modern 3D engines.
Warxon Alpha (Windows and Linux):
Community Map Pack 1:
