The team behind Bushido is proud to announce the release of Samurai Wars, the official add-on for the popular online RTS/FPS hybrid Savage, by s2Games.

Building on the strengths of the Savage engine, Samurai Wars provides an alternative and engrossing playing experience with hugely popular melee content. The game is released in conjunction with the European release of Savage. For those purchasing the European retail box set, Samurai Wars can be found on the CD along with the game. For users outside of Europe, the game is available to ship worldwide with free postage and packing from the link below. For current owners of Savage, Samurai Wars will be available for download shortly.
Here are some screenshots from the game.

What does this mean for Bushido? Well plans have not changed. With the recent news that Half-Life 2 has been delayed once more, this has given us some time to work on other projects (ie Samurai Wars) but Bushido will still be developed for Half-Life 2. In the meantime support will continue to be provided for Samurai Wars.

You can visit the official Samurai Wars website to learn more on the mod by going here, or visit the official Samurai Wars forums by clicking here.

You can buy Savage: The Battle for Newerth, including the exclusive official mod Samurai Wars by going here. As said above, the game is available to ship worldwide with free postage and packing.

Also, there are two new patches also available for all players with Samurai Wars installed. Both are required to play Samurai Wars. Get the patches from the links below:

a new patch should be out soon to add the ronin characters and fix some stuff.

- Linux build added.
- Added ronin npc's.
- slightly changes to all maps
- Removed chargeup on archer's bow. The archer's bow now fires at a constant speed, with no chargeup.
- Decreased range of yumi. The yumi can still fire great distances, however players will need to aim accounting for the arrow's arc to get the maximum range.
- Decreased yumi damage from 300 to 120.
- Decreased reticule recover rate time for musket, making aiming more difficult.
- Decreased musket damage from 600 to 190.
- Decreased movement speed while aiming/firing for ranged weapons to 0.5 * normal speed.
- Changed all ranged weapons' unit piercing modifier to 1.
- Increased yari health from 225 to 250.
- Increased sohei health from 225 to 300.
- Increased kengou health from 375 to 400.
- Reduced cannon aiming rectangle width.
- Reduced cannon splash damage radius from 100 to 50.
