Warzone 2100 - the Campaign Choices Update is out now

By - | Views: 22,779

The free and open source RTS Warzone 2100 has a big new upgrade out with the Campaign Choices Update. Making it better than ever and a great time to pick it back up. Warzone 2100 was originally a full proprietary commercial release back in 1999, but it was eventually made open source.

Still to this day it's one of the most unique real-time strategy games around, and it's awesome to see it continue to evolve thanks to a dedicated group of coders.

Some of the big additions include:

  • New Campaign Selector, enhanced support for campaign mods
    • Added Balance Mod: “Classic Balance”
    • Numerous “Tweak Options” to allow ultimate gameplay customizability
      • “Timer Power Bonus”, “Classic Timers”, “40 Unit Limit”, “Autosaves-Only”, and more
  • 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?”
  • In-Game Guide
    • Viewable in the escape menu, and teaching the player fundamentals throughout the campaign

There's also some big multiplayer improvements too like:

  • New Client Join UI
    • Displays progress, adds ability to cancel a join, and no longer blocks the UI waiting on the host / connection
  • Advanced Port Mapping support
    • Can now utilize PCP, NAT-PMP, and UPnP to improve the ability to successfully host games
  • Improve Auto Lag Kick
    • Fix issues, improve situations including: all players loaded but spectator is blocking game start, lagging / infinite ping in the lobby

Definitely going to have to give this one a go again, and play through the new campaigns which look really interesting.

See more on the official site. Full list of additions in the 4.5.0 changelog.

I still have to give this a try
There was a time when I played this every day during lunch breaks. A great time sinker and runs pretty much on anything.
