Half-Life 2: Wars brings the struggle between the human resistance and their Combine overlords to a real-time strategy setting. The Half-Life 2: Wars Beta, which you can download here on Desura, requires you own Half-Life 2: Episode 2 to play (does not need to be installed)! It features 3 multiplayer game modes: Sandbox, Annihilation and Overrun, showcasing the Rebels and Combine playable factions. Additionally it features a singleplayer mission mode.
A heartfelt thank you to the community and all who voted for us to get us 9th place in the 2010 Mod of the Year competition.

Today ModDB announced the Player's Choice winners of the 9th annual Mod of the Year competition. Thanks to all of our supporters and fans who diligently voted for us in both rounds of voting, we have placed 9th in the 2010 awards for Player's Choice - Best Released Modification. Our last release in 2008 came in 10th in the 2008 MOTY, so this is a step up for us!
This is just a short post to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who helped make this happen, and a Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays from the Half-Life 2: Wars team!
We'll be posting some more news and updates before too long detailing our current game plan. At the moment we are gearing up to focus on implementing the Combine and Resistance factions back into the multiplayer... you'll hear more soon. Until then, Merry Christmas and thank you for all of your support and encouragement!
