OpenArena is an open-source content package for ioQuake3
licensed under the GPL, effectively creating a free stand-alone game.
OpenArena is a free replacement for id Software Inc.'s Quake 3 Arena,
it is not compatible with the proprietary game.
OpenArena's gameplay is exactly the same as Quake III
Arena - score frags to win the game using a balanced set of weapons
each designed for different situations. Gameplay modes exist such as
deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Tournament, and Capture The Flag (all
modes also in the original game). OpenArena version 0.7.6 adds the new
Elimination, CTF Elimination, Last Man Standing and Double Domination
OpenArena contains Mature Content, such as a lot of blood and
guts that stain the level with animation and sound accompanying it, and
characters wear next to nothing (but no nudity).
It uses the ioquake3 game engine, a project which aims to
build upon id
Software's Quake 3 source code release.
