Battle for Wesnoth, the pixelated open source 2d strategy game is now available for free on Steam. A game which resembles old Warcraft meets old Civilization, this is definitely a game worth checking out for old strategy veterans, as well as newbies who want to get a feel of what strategy games looked like back in the day.

The Battle for Wesnoth is an open source, turn-based strategy game with a high fantasy theme. From the plains of Weldyn to the forests of Wesmere, from the mines of Knalga to the soaring peaks of the Heart Mountains, take part in over a dozen adventures spanning centuries! Play as a young prince as he flees the encroaching forces of the Lich Lords to a new home across the sea… Delve into the blackest depths of the earth to craft a jewel of fire itself… Travel the continent in a daring quest to reclaim your rightful throne from a usurping queen… Step into the shoes of a young mage, his village beset by orcish invasion, as he seeks vengeance and immortality… Battle the undead hordes of a foul necromancer as he marches upon your capital… Lead a daring group of survivors across the blazing sands to a final confrontation with an unseen evil… The choice is up to you.

Then take the battle online! Choose from seven fully-balanced factions and duke it out with your friends in over 50 multiplayer maps for parties of all sizes!
