Report article RSS Feed Warsow 0.6 is here!

Yeehaa, the moment you’ve all been waiting for is here! After a combined effort of over 16 months of dedicated developing by our amazing team of dedicated hobbyists, and contributions from our own community, we can now all welcome the next milestone of War§ow: 0.6!

Posted by ETR on Dec 19th, 2010

As with every major release, there are many improvements. For the full scoop, check out the changelog. For a quick fix, here’s some of the major improvements:

» Maps!
plenty of new maps and most of the old maps restyled and redesigned for improved visuals.
» Models! All weapon models have been retextured for a more unified and modern look.
» New Gametype! Added the class-based ‘Capture the Flag: Tactics’ gametype.
» Music! A brandnew full soundtrack by jihnsius. 6 in-game songs and 2 new menu soundtracks for you to enjoy while browsing for servers.
» Prettier! Engine updates for improved and more realistic lighting.
» Better performance! Higher framerates due to greatly improved engine performance. Lower latency due to better netcode.

Warsow 0.6 weighs in at a hefty 429mb, that’s almost 200mb of added value for the same extremely low price (of nothing!). We invite the community to give feedback.

Additionally, you can grab the sourcecode in the Warsow 0.6 SDK (Software Development Kit), and the Warsow 0.6 Presspack for some high resolution screenshots and multiple vectorized versions of the Warsow logo!

rocketjumps are perfectly possible. Aim down, fire and press jump at the same time should get you a long way. You can even rocketjump with walljumps for crazy fast 180s :)!

Amazing style! I loved the map design, and the weapons are sexy too! No public servers though, or is it just me?

Dear Santa,

this year I don't have any wishes.
My only one wish was a new version of Warsow and the devs gave it me.
Ehhm but if you have some place for me in your bag, then please donate me a new headset.
