newspaper Urban Terror 4.3 "Still Dying" Launch

bullet_none in Urban Terror - posted Saturday, 01 October 2016 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.

Modes

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).

Weapons

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.

Maps

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.

HUD & UI

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.

UrTUpdater

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 KNOCKOUT is back - First 2016 edition !

bullet_none in Misc - posted Saturday, 19 March 2016 by FrozenSand

Sunday the 27th of March at 15:00 CET, Urban Zone will be hosting a KNOCKOUT tournament. The event will be streamed on twitch.tv/urbanzone and the reigning Crimzon will be defending his belt.

It's been over a year now since the last edition, and as France just won NationsCup XIX with flying colours, Urban Terror's eSport scene needs some more challenges in the go!

Competition wise as an event KnockOut is two hours of non-stop action where rules of fair play become a suggestion and where rules are broken by but not limited to shoutcasters narcing out campers as well as players not able to handle the pressure and intentionally lemming off of tall buildings if just for the shear entertainment value. Nothing better than participating or watching the broadcast to get a good picture. :)

How can you sign up?

Signups will be done through the Urban Zone website, this news post has all the details. The first 15 to reply to this news post get a spot. If you aren’t one of the lucky fifteen, don't get discouraged and sign up anyway – some people always drop out and you can take up their place.

Please find more information on Urban Zone KNOCKOUT tournaments here.

newspaper Urban Terror 4.3 - Mapping it out !

bullet_none in Urban Terror - posted Sunday, 06 March 2016 by FrozenSand
In anticipation of the upcoming release of Urban Terror 4.3, we would like to offer a short overview of what the community should expect from it. Firstly, however, we would like to add, in a bit of a gloomy state of mind, that with the release to come we will bade farewell to urtUrban Terror 4 and ioQuake! Since the future releases will be developed using the new Unreal Engine and will bear a new name, we expect 4.3 to represent the final Urban Terror 4.x release, as well as the final one using the venerable ioQuake engine.

The Urban Terror 4.3 release will be focusing on introducing a new game mode, a bunch of new weapons, along with various other additions and improvements.

What's happening to the maps ?

The default map list was pruned for this 4.3 Urban Terror release. More specifically, the test maps, the third-party maps, as well as those maps which proved to be seldom played within the community were removed from the default installation package. Of course, they can always be downloaded separately by those who grew to appreciate or perform well when playing them.
maps: AbbeyCTF, Ambush, Commune, Company, Crossing, Harbortown, Horror, Maya, Prague_v2, Snoppis, Toxic, Tunis
As with every aspect of Urban Terror, we expect each of the listed maps to have nostalgic supporters. We apologize to those who could be disappointed and kindly ask them to download them separately from map repos now.

In order to avoid downloading an unnecessary custom map to play Kingdom in TS mode, the official version of the map has been updated with the RC6 layout in the said gametype. The new level benefits from the latest graphic improvements realised along with new music added in the tavern area.
You can enjoy a quick preview of the update throughout this short clip:



More to come regarding the new game mode and other improvements in 4.3. Stay tuned!
