Alien Arena

AlienArena a free first-person shooter

Alien Arena (initially CodeRED: Alien Arena) is a free, stand-alone first-person shooter computer game.
 Begun by COR Entertainment in 2004, the game combines a 1950s-era sci-fi atmosphere with gameplay similar to the Quake, Doom, and Unreal Tournament series.
 Alien Arena focuses mainly on online multiplayer action, although it does contain single-player matches against bots.  Alien Arena has been released for Microsoft Windows, OS X, Linux, and FreeBSD. While the game’s content is proprietary freeware, prohibiting  commercial re-sale, the CRX engine is open source.  In 2013 the assets license was loosened, which allowed the inclusion in Linux distributions.” source: wikipedia

AssaultCube a FREE, multiplayer, first-person shooter

AssaultCube, formerly ActionCube, is a free and open source software first-person shooter video game, based on the Cube engine.
It takes place in realistic environments, with fast, arcade gameplay. Although the main focus of  AssaultCube is multiplayer online gaming, a single-player mode consists of computer-controlled bots.
AssaultCube utilises efficient bandwidth usage, allowing the game to be run with connection speeds as low as 56kbit/s. It can run on older computer hardware as well.
AssaultCube is available for free on Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux. The game engine is free software, however parts of the accompanying game media, such as the graphics, are released under non-free licenses.
AssaultCube was designed to be more realistic and team-oriented than Cube while keeping Cube’s distinctive fast-paced gameplay. In comparison to other games, AssaultCube is slower than Quake but faster than Counter-Strike.
There are two different teams in AssaultCube, called the “Cubers Liberations Army” (CLA) and the “Rabid Viper Special Forces” (RVSF).” source: wikipedia
