It is an open source multiplayer first-person shooter. It uses the id Tech 3 engine source code (which is released under the GNU General Public License v2), and fills in the blank with all new media to make a playable game.
OpenArena is licensed under the GNU GPL version 2 - data and engine. Anyone can contribute to it, if it complies with the GNU GPL.
WARNING: OpenArena contains Mature Content. I'm serious. If you don't like shooting the bloody guts and beating hearts out of voluptuous barely modest combatants then don't play it, or play without the mature pk3 file and use com_blood 0/cg_showGibs 0 (but be aware that pure servers may not agree with this).

What better way to end a stressful working week than with a fistful of freedom! This week we have three fresh faces for everyone to enjoy along with an old favorite!
OpenArena is a community-produced deathmatch first person shooter with a slew of game modes and a small arsenal of weapons - all the better to shoot with! Expect this shortcut to stay on your desktop for the foreseeable future! If gibbing is not your cup of tea why not give One Night 4 a go? ON4 is the long awaited sequel in the award winning horror series. It is the ultimate test of skill for fans of classic survival horror.
Up next on the freedom fun wheel is ONE DAY for Ched, a free hardcore corridor shooter. Blast your way through hordes of baddies slinging one liners and kicking some rear-end! Finally why not give Boson X -a new rotational runner - a spin? Quantum jump from plank to plank as you hit critical velocity! How far can you go?
Come back next week as we roll out another foursome of freebies for the freedom admiring gamer!

I love finally see OpenArena on Desura!
It's a great game, maybe the best shooter Q3 based.
Great job devs :)

Uninteresting gameplay, markets itself as a "shooter for adults" and therefore tries to make it's sad attempt at becoming a better game by giving female characters as little areas covered by clothing sound less sad.
This game is a waste of your time.
