Freeworlds: Tides of War Demo Patch 1.2 Freelancer Mod News
Posted by Sushi on 2012/4/21 3:43:45 (4604 reads) News by the same author

Over the past week the team has been working on the demo release to improve stability and performance. FriendlyFire has been a key component to these fixes spending countless hours rewriting the rendering pipeline code to improve overall performance and minimize bugs. He's done such a spectacular job that we will be releasing a Battle System where demo players will take part in a huge scale battle between the New Republic and Imperials. We cannot wait to watch players reactions when they see this massive battle happening before their very eyes!!

For those of you that have not tried the demo yet, I strongly encourage you to give it a try. We also will be having a large scale PVP event between the New Republic and Imperial factions that have formed on our demo server. This event is taking place on: Saturday,April 21, 21:00 GMT

Take a look at some of the player captured images below and see what you're missing:
