Title: Any news on the new release?
Post by: Gonzo on December 21, 2020, 12:09:32 PM
Hello, guys!

Are there any news upon the new OA release? Still possible to see it and play?
What's the status of the game/forum etc.? I really hope the project isn't dead...

Happy frag time to everyone. Thank you in advance.

Hi!

OA new version will be OA3, a content reboot with more coherent assets quality and art style (which will be more anime-ish). Unfortunately the progress is slow due to many reasons (and covid didn't help). ETA: when it's done.

Engine and gamecode development happens pubicly, on github https://github.com/OpenArena and nightly builds for easy testing gamecode (as OAX mod) and Windows binaries are available (here (http://files.poulsander.com/~poul19/public_files/oa/dev088/gamecode_nightly/) and here (http://files.poulsander.com/~poul19/public_files/oa/dev088/engine_windows_nightly/) respectively). Engine and gamecode will just be an evolution of current ones, while user interface will get a big overhaul (early preview in oax_m nightly builds).

At the moment it's not possible to register new users on the forum, however most community activitiy happens in the Discord server (http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=5287.0).
