Multi Theft Auto (MTA) have announced a preview release of MTA: San Andreas Deathmatch, a free multiplayer modification for the PC version of GTA: San Andreas. The release is aimed at community members who wish to create game modes, maps, and other resources.
"The key emphasis of this initial release is to get your help in making MTA the mod you want. We're not going to be taking feature requests - initially, but we want you to help to find bugs, create game-modes, maps, resource web pages and anything else you want! We're going to remain focused on fixing bugs until we have a release that we're happy to call a final 1.0 release."
In order to play, you require the MTA: San Andreas Deathmatch Client, which can be obtained from the Multi Theft Auto website. Dedicated servers and release notes are also available there.
