How to Install and Play Popular Game 'True Combat: Elite' on Ubuntu

True Combat Elite (TCE) is total conversion of the popular free multiplayer game Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. TCE is a tactical-team shooter, set up in a modern-world environment. It puts you into the role of elite mercenary soldier in the conflicts of two internationally operating forces.

Yet another terror counter-terrorism shooter. Should I try it?? Look at some of the features of the game and the gameplay video to decide yourself.
  • The game is absolutely free. Both Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and TCE is free to download.
  • Tactical-teamplay oriented, modern-world combat simulation
  • Realistic weapon behavior simulation
  • Iron sight aiming system, no crosshair
  • Sophisticated ballistic simulation including multiple-layer object penetration
  • Professional mode: 1-life, short-timed, objective driven scenarios in realistic environments
  • Independent minimods: objective, bodycount and capture the flag
  • Balanced, team specific set of real-world weapons (Beretta 92, Glock 19, Ump45, Mac-10, M4, Ak-47, and much more)
  • Rich, deluxe graphics, based on high-resolution digital-camera shots and HDR lighting
  • Lag compensation, client-side bullet prediction, punkbuster support
  • Immersive and lethal, fast-paced action
