"Where Quake meets reality" is the motto the developers of Urban Terror have adopted. While many mods these days tend to focus on realistic game play, Urban Terror takes a "fun over realism" approach to the FPS arena.
As with Quake III Arena, gamers want speed, they do not want to feel bogged down by weapons and gear, but feel they can get down a street and take cover while under heavy fire or the wizzing of a sniper's bullet. Unless of course that sniper is dialed in, then kiss your ass goodbye.
Urban Terror combined the speed of Quake and combines a realism based theme to create the mod we have been developing since 2000. The mod has been met with great success over the years, featured in magazines across the world, debuted and demoed at Quakecon in 2000-2002 and supported by gaming leagues worldwide.
