Version 7.51 of Alien Arena is scheduled to be released in a matter of days, featuring some very signifigant performance gains, bugfixes, graphical updates as well as new content!

The performance gains are the big news, with an across the board increase of over 50% in most cases. At this point, the game can be run on it's highest settings on most any recent video card without framerate issues cropping up. A major amount of the rendering code was rebuilt with an emphasis on speed, and it really paid off. We also took care to fix a number of bugs, and add optimizations at every turn(something that has been ongoing for years).

Not only did the engine receive a mega-dose of steroids, but we also managed to revamp/remake three maps(a fourth nearly made it in, and will soon). Check out some of the new environs below!
