THQ announces the release of Nexuiz for Windows PC, offering the commercial CryEngine-powered version of this multiplayer first-person shooter:

THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) and Machinima today announced the immediate launch of Nexuiz PC for $9.99 on Steam and other digital download sites. Nexuiz is the CryENGINE® 3 powered Arena FPS from Illfonic.

The PC version of Nexuiz will include a number of enhancements and changes over the console version including:

    • Dedicated Server Support and Server Browser
    • Enhanced, CryENGINE 3 powered graphics with DX11 support

The most confusing thing is that Nexuiz was actually a game that used a modified version of the Quake engine and was published under the GPL.
Then the name was licensed to Illfonic and they scrapped the engine and the artstyle and replaced it with something different.

... what the hell?
