Battle for Wesnoth

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.

You can download the game right now to try it out here:

Wesnoth already has a Steam app ID, so there's no doubt that it will be released. In general, I'm pretty sure that any games that have already been greenlit are safe to continue under the old system; only those that have not yet been greenlit (or haven't even started the process) will need to submit under the new rules.

Although the game came out a long time and is present on Android and ios.
I would like to see Battle for Wesnoth in STEAM.

Can you still release BfW on Steam now after Steam Greenlight is gone? And will you?

@pyndragon It was suggested to the developers but has been declined. About the release; Unfortunately there are not many developers left, but those who are work hard towards the 1.14 release. We will have to wait until it is done.
And for those who can't wait, feel free to download the latest developement release on the official downloads page here:

The plan now I believe is to have Beta 2 be released as Early Access here. I don't know exactly when that'd be though.

They said Q1 was a no go and I wouldn't expect it to come out Q2 either. From what I've read I'm expecting it to come out in like August or so.

Will there ever be a Wesnoth 2 that is a normal game that you'd have to buy?

Celtic Minstrel is it safe to say that Wesnoth will release on Summer?
