Xonotic is a direct successor of the Nexuiz project. It represents years of development from its humble beginnings as a Quake 1 engine modification, and now aims to be the best possible open source first person shooter available. It could be considered most similar to Unreal Tournament and Quake at its heart, especially regarding teamplay and game mechanics.


The community surrounding Xonotic is diverse, providing a wide array of talents. We have graphic artists, modelers, mappers, musicians, and (of course) skilled players. If you’d like to get involved, we’d love to see you on the forums or on IRC today! Find and take part in organized matches on the IRC pickup channel!
