Install Warsow 2.1 – Free Online Games on Linux

Warsow is a online game set in a futuristic cartoonish world where rocketlauncher-wielding pigs and lasergun-carrying cyberpunks roam the streets. It is a completely free, fast-paced first-person shooter for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

Game is about speed and movement. Like a true cyberathlete you jump, dash, dodge, and walljump your way through the game. Grab power-ups before your enemy does, plant a bomb before anyone sees you, and steal the enemy’s flag before they know what is going on!

Warsow 2.1 Changelog

  • The next major release of Warsow introduces some significant changes to the engine along with some polish and fixes to the gameplay
  • First major change is that now the renderer is off-loaded into a separate thread, meaning that your mouse movement and networking is not affected by screen refresh rate anymore
  • Third-party maps and textures will now be sandboxed so that they can no longer override stock on game assets
  • Path to local profile and cache on *nix systems changed to better follow the XDG Directory Specification. The profile path has changed from $HOME/.warsow-2.x to either follow $XDG_DATA_HOME or to $HOME/.local/share/warsow-2.x by default. The same logic applies to cache directory as well. This change also affects server configurations
  • Major uplift to the Race game mode
  • A fair amount of bugfixes along with mapping and modding improvements has gone into the release
