Alien Arena is an open sourced game that combines a sci-fi atmosphere with the tournament style deathmatch of Q3A and UT2k4. Major graphical features such as GLSL per-pixel lighting, ragdoll physics, light blooms, real time lights and shadows, textured particles, shaders, and reflective water, create a colorful and immersive deathmatch atmosphere. The game also includes mutators, adjustable effects, bot skill settings, and fully configurable deathmatch, team deathmatch, CTF, All Out Assault, Team Core Assault, Cattle Prod, and Deathball games. The game features original artwork, with a dark, sinister atmosphere combined with an off-the-wall campiness, and trippy, techno type music. There are currently over 60 maps, loaded with weapons(each having an alternate firing mode) and powerups. Alien Arena has fast, smooth gameplay, & players can play online against one another or against the bots. Please post all support issues in the forums for the game.

Post news Report RSS Nvidia 191 driver problem with Alien Arena, patch coming.

We have discovered that there is a bug with the Nvidia 191 drivers that crashes the game on startup, and have found a workaround. Patch will be forthcoming.

Posted by on

The Nvidia 191.xx drivers have a serious bug with that causes vsprintf statements to immediately crash the game. We have a workaround, and will be releasing a patch within a couple of days. As a bonus, we will include the new dm-zion, as well as possibly some other goodies!

Thanks to everyone who reported the bug, and thanks to Kirk Barnes for finding the fix!

This should be coming out in a few days. We've also disabled the automatic video settings detection on first run, as this was also causing problems for people, so the game will be defaulted to medium settings across the board.
