1. What is WARSOW? back to top

Warsow is a First Person Shooter (FPS) designed for online play, inspired by the fast paced shooters of the late 1990's and early millenium. Although many similarities to Quake 3 Challenge ProMode Arena and Unreal Tournament exist within the game, Warsow stands out as a unique experience. The development team has sought to create a fun, fast, and action-packed game which may be seen as a critique and as an ethical alternative to the many realistic, slow, and warfare-orientated MMS's that saturate today's FPS market.
