Release date: Early 2017
Enter the realm of Wesnoth! Fight to regain the throne, of which you are the legitimate heir. Battle against the undead hordes of an invading Lich. Delve deep into the depths of the earth on a quest to craft a Sceptre of Fire. Cross the oceans as the first settlers of a new land. Or guide a ragtag group of survivors across the desert wastes as the unrelenting suns scorch the earth. The choice is yours...

The Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based tactical strategy game with a high fantasy theme, featuring...
  • Over two hundred unit types, sixteen races, seven major factions, and hundreds of years of history
  • Sixteen exciting, full-length campaigns
  • Multiplayer and co-op (LAN or hotseat) support
  • Support for creating your own exciting scenarios, maps and campaigns
  • A large, dedicated community of fans and modders

Developed as an open source game since 2003 by a group of volunteer developers with support from the community, we're finally hoping to release on Steam! As it has always been, the game will be absolutely free, and any updates to the game will be distributed both via Steam and our other distribution channels. We update the game constantly, delivering new features and bug fixes.

Ok that makes sense. Plus, you guys made an add-on system so solid that steam workshop would be unnecessary.

Beyond legal issues, the Steam Workshop doesn't have full feature parity with the Wesnoth Addon Manager, and introducing its use would lead to community fragmentation between the players on Steam and those elsewhere.

There is mod support, but I'm pretty sure it will never be through Steam workshop. There are certain things that are impossible to do in a GPL game due to legal issues, and I believe workshop support is one of them.

Speaking of mod support? Steam workshop?

I Can't wait!!!

really excited to introduce my friends to this wonderful game.
(I've played for years but it was difficult to walk people through multiplayer setup)

really hope for mod support but I'm not picky!

Thanks so much guys!
Keep up the good work!

As we keep moving towards 1.14 and the Steam release, the next development version — 1.13.8 (1.14.1 Beta 1) — has been released.

yeah I notice when you've beaten Heir to the throne enough times you fly through it.
