Unvanquished is a fast-paced, futuristic FPS with RTS elements, pitting technologically advanced humans against hordes of highly adaptable aliens. The player can choose from either team, providing a fresh gameplay experience on both sides of the conflict. The game is under highly active development, with a new alpha release being made at the beginning of each month.

Report RSS Alpha 32: shoot 'em up!

New SMG model in first-person and third-person. Mantis texture/animation fixes, reanimated trapper. Renderer improvements and multiple general bug fixes.

Posted by on

In this release, we've at last added the new model for our rifle replacement, the SMG. Compared to its prior incarnation, the weapon has a faster firing rate and more spread, making the default human weapon more useful at shorter ranges. Be sure to try it out and shoot up some aliens with it! You'll have some new targets, as well. The mantis has received animation fixes and a texture update, while the trapper has been completely reanimated, making it much more lively compared to the older, more rigid animations.

We've merged in our latest batch of renderer fixes, optimizations, and improvements. Multiple bugs were fixed this release, as well. IQM structures (such as the reactor, armory, and drill) are no longer culled when you move your view past them. Circle menu colors for both teams have been made more consistent and hopefully less confusing. In addition, right clicking will cancel building now, as intended. Builders on both teams can view resource extraction rates on the lower left portion of the screen.
