Alien Arena: Combat Edition/Tactical Promo Kit
Alien Arena: Combat Edition has been released!

Combat Edition now includes the brand new Alpha Demo of Alien Arena: Tactical, a completely new mode of play that is objective oriented, slower paced, and requires precise teamwork in order to defeat the opposing team. Tactical pits Aliens vs Humans in a struggle to disable the enemy base by disabling their defense systems, destroying several key components and sub-components. Each team consists of three different player classes, each with a different ability that interacts with other classes. Working together a team can destroy their enemy much faster than if not. The Alpha Demo contains a single map, Tac-Extermination, and serves as a proving ground for the evolution of this new game. Some of the artwork is placeholder, as this is an Alpha, and several other game play elements regarding physics and abilities are not yet implemented. We also have released a separate, smaller installer that includes just the Tactical Alpha Demo. We anticipate that the full release of Alien Arena: Tactical will take place in the Spring of 2014.

A preview of Alien Arena: Tactical can be found here http://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/al...eview.2354

The CRX Gaming Engine that powers it received some major updates and bug fixes. Primarily, the menu GUI has been completely reworked into a brand new, modern form. A host of other optimizations and tweaks have continued to improve the already blazing performance the engine has achieved over the past couple of years.

RE: Alien Arena: Combat Edition/Tactical Promo Kit
I've downloaded the installers from red.planetarena earlier and the download speed was very slow (not even 200kbs)
So I deceided to upload it on our clansite and use it as alternate mirror:

Alien Arena: Combat Edition
http://clancbmp.net/files/alienarena-7_6...130827.exe
Tactical Demo
http://clancbmp.net/files/alienarena-tac...130827.exe

feel free to use it in the mirrorlist on the website. i will upload the linux archives later

RE: Alien Arena: Combat Edition/Tactical Promo Kit
The links on the "download" page appear to mostly go to the 7.66 version as expected, but the page still says "7.65." Also, this is out of date: http://red.planetarena.org/version/crx_version
