Sergeant_Mark_IV announced June 5th is the release date. A trailer was released now (click “Read More” to watch). v20 will will have a Starter Pack that lets you “unzip and play” and will include 30 new maps.
Brutal Doom is a Doom mod that required an updated engine (GZDoom for example) that ramps up the gore, firepower, and action from the original. It must be seen to be believed! You can download the latest release, v19, here.
One of the big advantages of the older id games is that you can remake the assets so they're much higher quality and it doesn't kill a semi-modern systems (mine is ~7 years old). A great example is something like this, high quality Quake 2 weapons! CTPEJIOK22 at Quakeone.com has made some. Not all the weapons are done but he's provided screens of the rocket launcher, rail gun, grenade launcher and double barrel shotgun plus a video of the rail gun and rocket launcher.
He's keeping the origional look so they're not new designs. You can join the conversation about them over at the Quakeone thread.
The Conquer Map Jam contains 8 new levels where your skirmishing skills will be pushed to the limits. Fight to the death in multiple arenas, many of which contain traps and tricks more deadly than the enemies themselves! Thank you very much to the authors who submitted their work for this jam :
Additional thanks to Onetruepurple and Primal for additional testing!
Thanks to GameHacKeR from the comments for pointing it out (and me forgetting to see if Func_Msgboard has anything new :p ). SUPERQOT is a Quake mod that only lets the anything move when YOU'RE moving. That's right, if you let go of your mouse/keyboard, time freezes. Looks pretty sweet! It's based on the game idea in SUPERHOT.
The results are in! You can view all the details over at the Quake 2 Cafe, each map is broken down by in several catagories. The overall winner with the most points is macanah with his map “mnhdmhighone - welcome to highone.” Congratulations macanah!
