AssaultCube – Multiplayer First Person Shooter Game

English

AssaultCube – multiplayer first person shooter game, based on the game Cube.

It is set in a realistic looking environment, with a gameplay that stays fast and arcade like.

AssaultCube was designed to be more realistic and team-oriented than Cube while keeping Cube’s distinctive fast-paced gameplay.

This game is all about team oriented multiplayer fun.

There’s no storyline, the game is purely about two teams (The Cubers Liberations Army and the Rabid Viper Special Forces), that relentlessly fight each other.

AssaultCube has a growing player base with more than a dozen user-run servers online.

AssaultCube also has several gaming clans, some of which participate in organized tournaments.

The game’s increasing popularity is likely due to its creative but simple gameplay style, cross-platform nature and low hardware requirements.

The bots have five levels of difficulty ranging from Bad to Best and you can play against up to thirty two of them.
