Do you like old school deathmatch with modern features but none of the frills that have ruined the raw purity of the genre? How about rich, colorful, arcadelike atmospheres? How about...retro Sci Fi? Then you're going to love what Alien Arena has in store for you! This game combines some of the very best aspects of classic deathmatch, and wraps them up with a retro alien theme, while adding tons of original ideas to make the game quite unique. Alien Arena is a furious frag fest with arenas ranging from the small, to the massive. With game modes such as Capture The Flag and Tactical, there are terrific team-based experiences to be had as well as 1v1 duels, free-for-all, and dozens of mutators to alter the game play to your liking. The community is friendly, as well as prolific. Dozens of maps, models, and various accessories have been created by community members to add on to the game experience.
After 6 years of the Gen 2 Martians, introduced in Alien Arena 2008, they are at long last being replaced. Polycount is nearly doubled, skin detail significantly increased, and the look made even more sinister and frightening, while still retaining a bit of the campiness that is the game's signature. This is only the beginning of a major artwork update, in which most player characters, and some weapons will receive extensive facelifts, or complete replacement, as was the case of the Martians.
