THQ and Machinima today announced the immediate launch of a public PC Beta for Nexuiz, an FPS already on Xbox 360 thanks to the Xbox Live Arcade House Party action in February.

This Beta will help us fine tune our online service, and we hope players will have a blast with it.”
The PC version of Nexuiz will include a number of enhancements and changes over the console version including:
- Dedicated Server Support and Game Browser
- Enhanced, CryENGINE 3 powered graphics with DX11 support
- Advanced custom controls, new HUD and a 15% increase to player speed for ultimate twitch-shooter experience – and Immersive feedback utilizing Alien FX by Alienware!
