Along with this, we have released our new trailer which showcases some of the best Republic at War has to offer (full res):
To get the new version you have several options. If you already have Republic at War 1.1.5 or 188.8.131.52 installed or you are playing via Steam, we recommend downloading just the launcher from here. This will be the fastest option to get right on the battlefield. Alternatively, you can choose between the auto-installer or the drag and drop (minimal) installation. Whatever you choose we ask that you to read the installation guide that comes along with your download.
If you are subscribed to Republic at War on Steam Workshop, your download should start automatically. Please go ahead and download the game launcher anyway to ensure that your game is multiplayer-compatible.
Of course, we'd like to thank a number of people for helping contribute to this latest release...
Firstly, we'd like to extend a big thanks to the Thrawns Revenge and Steiner mod teams for collaborating with us on technical issues and knowledge sharing -- we hope that we can do more of this in the future.
We'd also like to thank SmallPox for helping contribute to the lua initiative.
Finally, we'd like to extend a big thank you to everyone in the community -- singling out a few community members who have gone above and beyond helping answer community questions and provide constructive feedback that made it into the final release: LordBlackout, The_Great_Rice_God, CIS_Droid91, leyamasa, and Sephiroth0812.
Thanks again to everyone who helped make this release possible!
As many of you well know, this is not the final release of Republic at War with development of the next release having already begun. We hope to do a better job of providing timelier updates and incorporating community feedback as we continue onward to 1.3 and beyond. Stay tuned for more updates and may the force always be with you!
