HL2:Wars Beta 2.0.1 Patch

Post by Ennui » Mon Oct 08, 2012 9:31 pm

After getting some feedback since Beta 2.0.0 was released a few weeks ago, we have released a patch to Beta 2.0.1. 2.0.1 features some gameplay balance changes, several new music tracks, and a lot of bugfixes. Searching for games (matchmaking) has been fixed and now searches for games worldwide instead of by region, so it should be easier to find games to join.

For those of you who installed with Desura, simply launch Desura and update HL2:Wars automatically that way (remember, Desura is only needed to install/patch HL2:Wars but does not need to be running to play - once it is installed and updated you can launch through Steam like any other mod). For those of you who installed with the ZIP archive, we have also released a patch ZIP file that weighs in at 242mb. You can download the Beta 2.0.1 patch zip on ModDB.
