Frozen Sand has released a new update, 4.2.019, for its first-person shooter Urban Terror. If you already have Urban Terror installed, you only need to run the updater from the installation directory, without the need to download the entire game again.

It features online multiplayer, tons of maps, mods and weapons, but also features like acceleration and trickjumps.

Once an entire team is frozen, the opposing team wins the round.
