After long period of waiting, and almost complete roster change of the ACW Team, we bring you

3.5 Open Beta 

of American Civil War: Brothers vs. Brothers

(crashy and buggy for now, we know, but we're fixing things every day,
to bring you the full and stable version soon)


Current build of 3.5 Open Beta supports Warpath map based ACW campaign only.
However, users who don't own Warpath can still play the custom battles with all the new units!

Also, remember this is a BETA of 3.5, so several features aren't working yet and the installation is not as smooth as the full 3.6 version will hopefully be.

In the current 3.5 beta, research is disabled, but we're hoping to implement it in 3.6 or 3.7.

Detailed install info and video here:

1) Empire: Total War (preferably with Warpath addon)
2) ACW Brothers vs. Brothers 3.4.1 version (3.4 patched to 3.4.1)
3) husserlTW's Subs Power
1) Install ACW 3.4 and 3.4.1 patch (install instructions for each in the Latest Downloads/file link/ Description info)
2) install husserlTW's Subs Power launcher
3) download the ZoR - Open Beta 3.5
4) unzip the ZoR - Open Beta 3.5
5) run setup.exe and follow installer's instructions
6) Do not forget to select ZoR in the launcher, to run 3.5 Beta

It's really not as scary as it may look. If you're having any trouble, head to our FORUM and we'll help you out there. PLEASE DON'T USE COMMENTS BELOW HERE FOR TECH SUPPORT QUESTIONS (ACW team will not be answering them, other people might)!

We do not have any release date for 3.6 yet. Not even an estimate. Please do not ask about a release date, because we honestly just don't know.

Does the ACW 3.4 installer go to DATA or to just the empire folder?

Looks awesome. I was wondering, is 1.6 going to be update that can be installed over 1.5?

No idea what numbers you're talking about.
Last released ACW Mod version is 3.5 beta, now we're working on releasing 3.6 beta.

3.6 will likely replace 3.5 so you won't have to install 3.5 at all.

I love the 3.5 Beta, doing great guys hope your working on the full release. Quick question though, whenever I save while playing the beta it tells me the next time I go to launch that there is a file that does not belong to vanilla of ACW. this in turn prevents me from loading my old campaigns, starting new ones, and doing custom battles. Any ideas?

No release date.
Lower settings more. ACW has a lot more content than Vanilla ETW, so it strains the system more.
