newspaper Urban Terror 4.3 "Still Dying" Launch

bullet_none in Urban Terror - posted 23 days ago by FrozenSand

Frozensand is delighted to announce the release of Urban Terror 4.3: 'Still Dying' !

This important update from 4.2 brings with it numerous changes and additions, based on internal testing and community suggestions. The 4.3 series will be the very last version on the Quake 3 engine, as we move our development focus to UE4 Urban Terror: Resurgence.

Before going over the big features this update offers, we want to thank the many community members who have done an incredible job in helping us out regarding the menus, engine, updater and maps. Namely: Iye, Kronik, Mr.Yeah, karnute, Clatoo, PapyRunny, MajkiFajki, Thomas Brierley, ryan-sg, Fenix, Mickael9, clearskies, t3slider, and last but not least, the JrandomNoob. We also would like to thank former QA testers for the two years of testing, the community members and 4.3 pre-releases testers for their feedback.
Information: This is an update of the Urban Terror 4 version on Quake 3's engine, and it is not to be confused with Urban Terror: Resurgence which will run on the Unreal Engine.


A brand new game type has found its way into Urban Terror - Gun Game. It challenges you to kill your opponents in a free-for-all style fight, using weapons dictated by the game. Each time you kill someone, you gain a level and switch to a new weapon. The first player to earn a knife kill (the highest level weapon), wins the game!

Instagib has been an all time favourite mode in Quake 3, and is finally available in Urban Terror! Watch a sadistic smile spread across your face, as you instantly kill players with a single bullet from the instagib-exclusive weapon: the TOD50. In this mode, stamina can be unlimited, booting can be done with the TOD in your hands, its bullets can ricochet on certain surfaces, and rumour has it, you could even kill multiple players with one bullet! Instagib is available in any gamemode (excluding jump and Gun Game).


In Still Dying, we've revised the (long awaited) Groin & Butt hit location damages, as well as adjusted other damage values based on community suggestions. Additionally, we're proud to announce that the Benelli M4 Super 90, MAS FR-F1, FN Herstal P90 and .44 Magnum Revolver found their way into the the family of Urban Terror weapons. The Benelli will join the lonely SPAS in the shotguns category; the FRF1 will please the fastest and sharpest long range shooters; the P90 will serve as a secondary alternative, while the Magnum is a devastating but slow sidearm.


Some maps have received small updates, like Kingdom, and we are welcoming two new maps to the game: Mykonos and Paris. Feast your eyes on the teaser below, then check them out fully in game.


We have made some adjustments to the HUD and user interface. Improvements have been made to the chat and console designs, better option settings, and an improved server browser. A brand new UI and menu is also almost complete, which you can look forward to in the 4.3.1 update.


Along with many other improvements, our Urban Terror Updater now provides full OS X support, statically linked builds, OS specific updates and a brand new UI with download options as well as an improved progress bar.

newspaper Urban Terror 4.3 OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE

bullet_none in Urban Terror - posted 1 month ago by FrozenSand
Power-slide home, slip into a lush UrT hoodie, and start waiting. 4.3 is nearly here!

We can finally announce this fabled update launches Friday the 30th of September. Bringing with it new guns, new maps, gameplay improvements, improved console and admin functionality, and much more!

Join us all on September the 30th for a celebratory launch stream, casted by the great SevenofNine on UrT-TV or Twitch! The frozensand FS Dev Team will be discussing and demonstrating the new gameplay features, as well as answering viewer questions.

This release signifies the last major update to the Quake iteration of Urban Terror, and brings with it a small change to how we name our releases. From now on we will assign names to major releases, therefore 4.3 shall also be known as Urban Terror: Still Dying. In the same spirit, Urban Terror HD will now simply be called Urban Terror, with the first iteration being known as Urban Terror: Resurgence.

We're very excited to see you play this patch for the years to come, reel in new and old players to the community, and keep on fragging to Urban Terror: Resurgence and beyond! You can look forward to more detailed discussion and Still Dying feature rundowns over the coming days.

If you can't wait for 4.3, and want to help with final bug testing, download the Release Candidate 5 client here. You can also expect to see a prompt 4.3.1 patch. This will address any major issues identified post launch, as well as adding some extra goodies to keep you on your toes - including an updated UI!

That's enough excitement for one post, but follow our Reddit, Facebook and Twitter accounts for news and updates as they happen, or join the live chats at Discord and IRC.
