Warzone 2100 is a real-time action and strategy game set on earth in the 21st century. Upon entering the postnuclear world of Warzone 2100, you establish your base. Here you conduct research, design and manufacture vehicles, build new structures, and prepare your plans of global conquest. Each campaign features a large campaign map and six or more sub-maps. As key objectives are reached on the campaign map, missions are activated on the sub-maps. These missions are varied and feature everything from hit-and-run attacks to holding territory. The combat is fast and frantic with amazing effects and a true 3-D world with rotatable and zoomable cameras. Weapons range from bullets and lasers to explosive weapons that blast large areas of the highly detailed 3-D battlefield.

Version 2.1 Release Candidate 1 released

Hi Folks,

Allow me to introduce you to our first release candidate for 2.1: Warzone 2100 2.1 RC 1.

This release brings one new "feature" (not a feature really): the original sound tracks! Aside from that we have the usual bug fixes. With this release candidate we bring you:

  • Don't terminate on a bad/corrupted save game, instead reload the main menu.
  • Add the original sound track.
  • Force software "accelerated" OpenAL for Windows XP users to prevent audio "clogging" issues (ticket:115).
  • When new games are created in the lobby make sure to remove the "NO GAMES ARE AVAILABLE" message (bug #12399).
  • Prevent the "return" key from being mistaken for enabling chat mode if it has just been pressed to save a game (r6132, r6191)
  • Disable multi turret support.
  • Fix the laser satellite such that it does hit droids correctly.
  • Verify the versions of pkg-config, xgettext and msgfmt in the configure script instead of autogen.sh.

We also have several (other) bug fixes. For the full list of changes, see the change log.

Known Issues

The known issues from beta 5 remain.

The full list of known issues:

  • Save games from the 2.0 series can not be loaded with this version. (NOTE: We do not intend to "fix" this, as we are breaking compatibility with the previous save game format.)
  • The multi player code has been improved since beta 2, but running out of sync is still possible.
  • The game in general still aborts a lot in debug builds due to failed assertions.
  • Save games from 2.1 beta 4 (that, and only that version), can not be loaded with this version. (NOTE: We cannot fix this because the beta 4 save games miss information we need.)


The source code and all available binaries can be found, as usual, at the download page.

Or download the Windows- or MacOSX- version from ModDB.

Best regards,
The Warzone 2100 Resurrection Project
