Two items of news that is...
First is the Warsow fork simply called Warfork is set to be released August 5th on Steam. Some things mentioned includes a re-texturing of the maps, integration into Steamworks, anti-cheat implementation, replacing player models with cats... Yes, that's a thing, and no, Leileilol/fromhell (from OpenArena) is not involved. Joking aside, these developers/Warsow players seem serious, and I expect to see some advancements in the future.
But wait, there's more. I can't “not” finish talking about Warsow, without talking about Warsow. Just days after the Warfork Steam release was announced, news broke that Warsow is still actively in development (not sure who the devs are), and a Warsow 2.4 beta has been made available to download and play.
