Not the kind of game I would play, but it's nice to hear from a CryEngine game that actually has a release date and is not done by Crytek.

You guys should check out Xonotic. It's a fork of Nexuiz and is really awesome - great graphics, varied gameplay, good community and it's open source (free).

The developers at Illfonic are freaking kickass guys and are huge fans of the tech! I urge you to support this small team of hilarious and talented guys.

As we've been playing this off and on for quite some time throughout their development let me assure you that there is more to this than just being a UT ripoff it's quite fun and they really went for a completely different style than we've ever seen other CryENGINE games go.

Good stuff :)

Go Sean! :cheesy:

Will support it once the PC version arrives. Hoping for a Steam release aswell. But $10 bucks for the XBOX version is pretty cheap, so i hope the community will support this.

Looks cool indeed, might try this the next time I'm around my 360, but to ask the question on everyone's lips, how on earth do you pronounce it?

HAHAH I thought the exact same when i met these guys.
You say it just like you say NEXUS just looks different cause that c001 2 d0.
For a long time we were all calling it Nexwhiz...fail

I was going to mention the PC version in my previous post but the 360 version is still good and I don't want to take away from it....just that I've been working with them on the PC sku....and I can say there is some DAMN sexeh tech in their PC version.
I say too much, buy the Xbox version AND the PC version maybe while you're at it also donate to MWLL :evil:
