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:

Patch 1

Patch 2

Its one of the greatest mods ever! hope u guys release a downloadable version soon because there are not a lot of samurai wars servers yet and not many ppl are playing the mod! at least i am lucky if there are even 1 - 10 players out at the servers.
keep the good work up and fix the bugs, the gameplay is great! ;-)
