Like Carmageddon? Love Wheels of War! The Carnage Council demands it! Racing, vehicular carnage, power-ups, (insane stunts, killing zombies, and upgradeable cars - coming soon), and STATS! There will be powerups/powerdowns, a credits system, upgradeable cars (via armour, offensive, and engine characteristics), checkpoint style racing (i.e, ability to roam), destructible cars, and a stunts system.

(we need more mirrors!)

Just unzip the contents of the the 0.1a downloaded file into your /Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars/ directory, and then do the same with 0.1b! This release is for both Windows and Linux!

This version is a very early alpha release. We expect that you will find bugs, and you may feel that the gameplay is not up to the quality of which you expected. Zombies, stunts, upgrades and more will be added in time.

We have decided to release this early as community involvement is high on our list of priorities. We believe instead of having a long closed testing phase, by releasing early and frequent releases we can take your comments and critisism on board quickly and allow a higher quality game when we eventually come to release the 1.0 version.

BTW, when I played earlier today I played on an EU server & it ran pretty smooth. Ironicly, with ~13 people it played like Carmageddon 1 with 8 over a token ring network @ 4mbs. :D

Good times....
