alien arena 2010

Alien Arena is a free, stand-alone FPS deathmatch game for Windows and Linux. The game has been free to play since its inception, and there are currently no plans to change it to a pay-to-play format. However, as of version 7.20, it features in-game advertising, in the main menu and in some maps. While the game's content is proprietary, the CRX engine is open source.

Alien Arena 2010 7.40 has been released a few days ago and comes with 5 new maps, new weapon models (disruptor and beamgun), many gameplay tweak and other changes which you can see HERE.
