One of my favourite RTS games, Warzone 2100, just keeps on getting better thanks to it being open source. A major new Beta has been released that has some really great improvements for both singleplayer and online play.

Version 4.5.0 Beta 1 released on June 23rd adds in enhanced support for campaign mods (and campaign balance mods). With that, two entirely new campaigns have been added in:

  • Addon Campaign: Reclamation
    • A brand-new campaign from @DARwins1 with an original story taking place before the events of the main game:
    • “Set out under the command of renowned General Edmund Clayde with the goal of laying the foundations of a new world. What could possibly go wrong?”
  • Addon Campaign: Fractured Kingdom
    • A brand-new campaign from @DARwins1 with its own self-contained story:
    • “After crash-landing in the territory of a once powerful kingdom, you must navigate your way through the various factions fighting over what remains. Can you prevail against the odds, facing relentless foes, and see this story to its end?”

There's also a new in-game guide you can bring up any time, and a classic feature returns with formation speed limiting.

For people who enjoy online play there's several big improvements there too including a new UI for joining games, there's advanced port mapping so you can now use PCP, NAT-PMP, and UPnP to improve the ability to successfully host games. Hosts can now kick stuck-loading players and various bug fixes. Lots more smaller changes too in the changelog.
