Urban Terror is a idTech3 engine based shooter with a contemporary setting which began as a popular Quake III mod that is now standalone since ID software released the source code of the engine. The gameplay is very fast-paced and inspired by Hollywood movie depiction of gunfights. Development is done by an invite-only group of hobbyist game designers. Forks are prevented by keeping the assets under a Freeware license. It has a small but active e-Sport community.
