Gimbal EXPANSION ONE Header Graphic - May 2003 - RACE - DEATHMATCH - CTF - PARTS

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Gimbal Expansion One ! It has taken many months of Beta testing and development, but Expansion One is now here. Thank you, Beta Testers!

This is the largest release of Gimbal features since Gimbal's original launch in August 2012. Expansion One has new game modes, weapons, and features which work together to bring Gimbal in line with my original vision.

It's a free update to Gimbal, so all you have to do is launch Desura and let the automatic updater do its thing.

Yes. I'm still working out the best way to do it. You can PM me your IGS key, and I will activate it on Desura.

Looks good but a demo would be helpful. I'm not really a fan of multiplayer generally so a single player would be good as well.

Fantastic game with amazing depth due to extremely customizable craft and a great leveling system. Physics and FX are also top notch. Great community - see if the ship you build can conquer the online community

Must Buy!
