Urban Terror: An excellent First Person Shooter (FPS) game for Linux

Today, I am going to tell you about a online game, which I have started using for 1 week to spend my leisure times after working. It is certainly not an unknown or new game in the Linuxero scope, but he created that it is worth highlighting the current and new of it. And this is not another of Urban terror.

As a Urban terror, in the Linuxero scope There are other similar games that I personally had played before, such as Alien Arena, Assault Cube, Open Arena. However, despite having read about Urban terror I had not tried it before and the experience has been very pleasant. In addition, to comment on it, that soon there will be related news with your long awaited new version 5.

Urban Terror: A multiplayer game like First Person Shooter (FPS)

Certainly, on a previous occasion we have already talked a little about Urban terror, so after reading this publication, those interested in more information can review it to complement what is stated here, since it explains very well the game requirements and its installation ways, which have not changed practically at all. However, it is worth noting that in said publication it was described as follows:

"Urban Terror is a free multiplayer first person shooter game. Urban Terror uses the ioquake3 engine, as well as being a complement to the Quake III Arena. This game focuses on combining realism with fast-paced shooter action such as Quake III Arena and Unreal Tournament. The realism in the mod is introduced through a number of changes".

Personal experience

Personally, I am not a frequent player and less on a Computer, since since I was little I have opted more for Console games, and since I use GNU / Linux full time on my computer, the few times that I have decided to spend leisure time playing I have opted for CSGO via Steam. However, the game days that I lead in front of Urban terror they have been really pleasant. Nothing to envy to the pleasant and fun sensation of playing CSGO.

Really I recomend you to those who have a passion for Shooter Games, read, download and try how exciting and addictive the game is, and not only because of the game modes, weapons and mapsbut for the great global community who has, who contributes and participates in it.

Personally, I have been able to enjoy a few good hours of combat sessions with strangers until dawn, and others until almost midnight, with an excellent group of friends Linuxeros from the Urban Terror Server Community called linuxitos, many of them from Uruguay y Argentina.

    A video of 4 minutes and 32 seconds, and only in the final 32 seconds, 2 shots are seen... Counted, I'm not exaggerating, 2 shots. The rest are calculated jumps, as in any "platform" of a lifetime... and it's an FPS, be careful...
    We are ready, to see when someone does something like Call of Duty, native Battlefield for Linux and we stop being the great forgotten in the world of drivers and video games.
    Linux would go a long way if games didn't just come out for Windows and Mac, though on second thought... maybe that's why games are hardly ever ported to Linux.
