The team behind the popular free and open source fantasy turn-based strategy game Battle for Wesnoth have announced the start of a big new release.
Wesnoth 1.15.1 is the first in what will be a long series of Beta releases which includes a brand new campaign called Wings of Victory, an "Intermediate level Drake campaign with 11 scenarios". The Dunefolk faction got a big re-work as well to improve balance against the six Default factions, lots of translation updates, AI improvements, IPv6 improvements for multiplayer, the Font Scaling preference is back and much more included.
As for the previous teaser about Wesnoth being ported to Godot Engine, they confirmed on Twitter that was happening in parallel to the new update. Really fantastic to see such a classic bit of FOSS gaming continue improving over many years.
