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.
After 4 weeks of hard work, it is time to release Warsow 0.42. This latest release contains various bug fixes, changes and new features. The list includes fixes for the challenge queue and some performance improvements for WarsowTV. New features include the ability for WarsowTV to playback demos. The release is focused on code improvements so there is no new media for 0.42, but be sure to check the blog and idle #warsow on Quakenet to be able to participate in public beta tests.

The release comes in the form of a complete installer (for Windows and Mac) and a full or update package (for Windows and Linux). If you previously used the installer for 0.4 or 0.41, the 0.42 version will automatically recognise your configuration and take care of the update. If you are using the update package, please ensure that you have 0.41 installed first. To install the update, just extract the package over your Warsow 0.41 installation.
Thanks to everyone in the community for the massive amount of support you have demonstrated, and welcome to anybody who is trying Warsow for the first time (you won't look back)! Please report bugs to this forum and most importantly, enjoy the release!
