Generations Arena is an "ultimate tribute" to id Software (developer of the Quake and Doom series) as well as id's fans. Developed and released under the Quake3 engine, Generations Arena recreates all the classic First-Person-Shooter gameplay styles, physics, and weaponry that FPS players have come to know and love.
Players select their favorite "generation" among five choices. Each generation "class" has its own unique character, weapons, physics, and gameplay, all styled after such classic FPS deathmatches as Doom, Quake, and Quake2. Each class represents a particular style of FPS gameplay, so Quake2 fans feel at home with the Strogg Troopers, QuakeWorld fans enjoy the Slipgate class, and so on.
Once players make their selection, they battle it out online against other players, generation versus generation. BFG balls sear the air, lightning guns fry unlucky swimmers, nailguns and chainguns cut through opponents, and chainsaws, fists, and axes deliver humiliations all around. Players can battle in Free For All, Team Deathmatch, Tournament, and Capture The Flag modes of play, or use the bot support to create computer opponents to train against.
GenArena Version includes all five Generations, over 40 weapons to choose from, new powerups and powerup effects, techs, grapples, and much more, with support for server administrators to select what powerups, techs, and even classes are used in their game. All standard Quake3 multiplayer modes are available; additional modes are being considered for a later release.
Unlike its predecessor, Quake2:Generations, Generations Arena has been designed from the ground up to provide the ultimate mod for id Software fans without infringing on the rights of id Software themselves. WireHead Studios has worked hard to recreate many elements of "classic deathmatch" without infringing any copyrights. WireHead Studios hopes its fans thoroughly enjoy the first legal release of the "Generations" legacy.
