Gimbal EXPANSION ONE Header Graphic - May 2003 - RACE - DEATHMATCH - CTF - PARTS

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Gimbal Expansion One ! It has taken many months of Beta testing and development, but Expansion One is now here. Thank you, Beta Testers!

This is the largest release of Gimbal features since Gimbal's original launch in August 2012. Expansion One has new game modes, weapons, and features which work together to bring Gimbal in line with my original vision.

It's a free update to Gimbal, so all you have to do is launch Desura and let the automatic updater do its thing.

I sent him an e-mail about it and got a key a couple days later, so either he's putting them out now, or you will have to request it from him manually.

A quick question for the devs. As Gmbal is now on Steam, will owners of the Desura version be receiving Steam keys also? Thanks in advance.

More than likely you'll need to contact the devs directly with the proff of purchse/gift.
Here's the email:

Is this game only online? No single player? I read a review that said it was online only, but I couldn't find anything to back that up other than it mentions multi-player in the description, but plenty of games are single player with a multi-player option, which is this?

This is a multiplayer-only game. However, you could of course host a game yourself (from the game client), and throw in some bots!

well then it's not multiplayer only is it? HeySteveJoe you can play offline and single player to your heart's content because that's all I play to do with this game. And if your machine can somehow handle it, you can even play with 63 bots and yourself!
