Set in a futuristic cartoon-like world where rocketlauncher-wielding pigs and lasergun-carrying cyberpunks roam the streets, Warsow is a completely free fast-paced first-person shooter (FPS) for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Speed and movement, that's what Warsow is all about. Like a true cyberathlete you jump, dash, dodge and walljump your way through the game. Grab those power-ups before your enemy does, plant the bomb before anyone sees you, and steal the enemy's flag before anyone knows what's going on! A handful of popular gametypes come shipped with Warsow, like Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, Clan Arena, Instagib and Duel. Warsow invites you to add to this list, by creating your own custom gametypes with the brand new gametype scripting system! Please post all support issues in the forums for the game.
Here's a little update on the side of Warsow development, partly because of the deadline of the MODDB Mod of the Year Awards and our own deadline for Warsow 0.4 not complying, but ofcourse also because an overview of the progress is nice. The latest current release (0.32) is quite dated, so here's a summary of our progress, to show we are still actively developping the game and there has been plenty of progress since 0.32.

Our current internal deadline for the next major release has been influenced by the announcement of the 4th edition of the Crossfire Challenge Series, where a cashprize Warsow compo will be ran. The LAN competition being late february, we decided to attempt to release 0.4 around january, allowing the players enough time to practise and get used to the new release. The release will bring improvements in gameplay, performance and visual quality.
First of all, a sum-up of some of the more noticable updates and changes:
This is just a selection of the new stuff, our goal is to bring Warsow 0.4 in january, on-time for the Crossfire Devotii Challenge 4 Warsow Competition, but sadly too late for MODDB's Mod of the Year Awards deadline! For more information, check out Warsow.net, and the Devblog (where most of the leaks and updates go). Of course after all the blabla, screenshots is what you want! So here goes:
