Our final version of Sands of War 1.6 is now public available! We finished it some weeks ago, but we were too busy with the SoW2 beta 1.1 release back then. You can download it right away from our download section.

This is the end of a long era which was started several years ago by some creative guys who set out to develop a mod. Many doubted that we would finish the mod, but so we did. We did not just release it, we kept on improving it and releasing new versions. The final version, SoW 1.6, is now ready.

As SoW1 is now done, all crew members will focus their time on SoW2. Just as with SoW1 we will continue to improve SoW2 based on the feedback from the community. In our next news post you will get to see a nice remake of one of the old popular SoW1 maps.

Our download page looks a little weird, but everything is working.
