Lambda Wars (formerly Half-Life 2: Wars) brings the struggle between the human resistance and their Combine overlords to a multiplayer real-time strategy setting. The Lambda Wars beta only requires Alien Swarm installed to play. It features 3 multiplayer game modes: Sandbox, Annihilation and Overrun, showcasing the Rebels and Combine playable factions and a full-fledged RTS interface and HUD. There is also a singleplayer tutorial and a handful of singleplayer missions.

the news post will be up as soon as Moddb authorizes it! But if you can't wait for that, the readme file in the install has a long changelog :)

Do you need Episode 2 for this because 2 of the combine soldiers (the 2 in red) skin material is only from episode 2.

mastersrp Jul 15 2008 replied:

if it's a mod for half-life 2, and not Episode Two, then you do not need those materials. however, the mod cannot contain the materials either, since that'll be illegal.

I assume you have Ep2 installed. Try this:

Right click Half-Life 2: Episode 2 > Properties > Local Files tab > Verify Integrity of game cache.
