OpenArena (short form: OA) is a free (as in freedom) network enabled multiplayer first person shooter based on the ioquake3 fork of the id tech 3 engine. It aims to be a free software clone of Quake III Arena, retaining its gameplay while replacing the proprietary content with brand new free (as in freedom, again) content. OpenArena is released under GNU General Public License v2.0 (GPLv2). It is developed by the OpenArena Team.

It features many gametypes, including the traditional deathmatch, and sports a varied cast of characters. Due to violent and occasional racy content, it's unsuitable for children under the age of 17.

OpenArena allows you to play freely, offline or online, and users are also able to run their own LAN or internet server.[1] The game is also compatible with a large base of third-party stuff designed for Q3A such as models, maps and mods.

It is cross-platform: official OpenArena releases include Windows, Linux and Mac binaries.[2] You can also get the sources, adapt and recompile them to have the game run on your favorite Operating System. Some third party developers even released "ports" for some popular "mobile" OSs, such as Android (see Ports and markets page).[3]

Current version: OpenArena 0.8.8

Coding-wise & other stuff[edit | edit source]

Other Stuff[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. You can find many public internet servers. Game servers are managed by third party (anyone can run his own server) and usually have no relation with OpenArena developers. See Servers for more infos.
  2. Those you can find, for free, in official OpenArena web site: http://www.openarena.ws
  3. Even if these third party people may visit the official OA forums by now and then, we have no direct control over their works, that may be considered "forks" of the original project. We are not responsible if a few of them ask for payment: GPL license allows commercial use.
