This release adds many new features and fixes to all gameplay aspects of Quake4. For teamplay games in general, they've added distinct Strogg model sounds, allowing players to tell teammates and enemies apart by sound.
Team games also got their fair share of attention though, and Freeze Tag makes its Q4 debut in this release. Freeze Tag is a team mode that has your opponents turn to popsicles when health reaches 0. Stand next to a frozen teammate to thaw them, returning them to the game. Win the round by freezing every member of the opposing team.
Amongst the items in the changelog, you'll see alot of lines marked Performance. This has been another key focus for the team, and we are very proud of the results. We are confident that the majority of players will find a noticable boost in FPS, especially if they take advantage of the new performance options. What's new:
# New 1v1 scoreboard, now showing detailed individual player stats at a glance
# New Player Profiles system, a controlled-config manager that allows players to save and load only those options configurable through the GUI
# New Demo Browser, to make watching demos even easier
# Additional support for server demos add: Freezetag gametype added.
