Orion is a total conversion utilizing Valve Software’s Orange Box engine. Orion immerses the player in an intense online experience with dynamic combat and a vast array of new features.. Featuring fast-paced tactical gameplay on futuristic battlefields, Orion brings the fun into gameplay.
We are unveiling a brand new map that has not been seen before. It is the first community map that is being made official via the Beta 1.2 release. Created by Andrew "Surfur" Dixon, DORSA offers players a brand new vista and 3-tier gameplay!

We are back with another update. We are rapidly approaching our release day and are looking forward to playing with all of you guys!
We are here to present you a sneak peak at the mysterious 5th level that has only been recently announced and to be included in the Beta 1.2 release - CTF_DORSA.
This map offers plenty of variety. The bases are each 3 stories tall and have plenty of rooms, places for cover, and requires a plethora of teamwork not only to infiltrate the enemy base - but to get out of it as well. The map is set up like a huge arena / thunderdome in a volcanic setting. There are plenty of ways across the map, including using the hanging platform in the middle, jetpacking across, or taking the lower route near the lava and mining vehicles.
This is the first map in Orion that is being showcased using Color Correction. Andrew presented us with this map using Color Correction and impressed me so much with what he did with it that we are going to be going through EVERY Orion map before the Beta 1.2 release and add Color Correction for the users that choose to enable that option.
We are going to be showcasing updated gameplay footage in the next few days after we conduct a few more beta tests. You will be able to see Dorsa in motion!
Make sure to prepare for the release of Beta 1.2 which is coming out on MONDAY, JUNE 14TH, 2010.
We are currently searching for a few more partners that are able to host and distribute the Beta 1.2 client upon the release. If you are an individual or a gaming network and see this as a feasible option - please refer to the contact methods below.
We are also looking for people that are able to host additional Windows-based Game Servers for Orion Beta 1.2. We have 10-20 that we are going to provide - but the more the merrier! If you believe you can help with this, please contact me:
