The Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based strategy game with a fantasy theme.

Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened veterans. In later games, recall your toughest warriors and form a deadly host against whom none can stand! Choose units from a large pool of specialists, and hand-pick a force with the right strengths to fight well on different terrains against all manner of opposition.


This is a development release, so it is likely to have some issues you would not expect in a stable series. Things are still in motion, many changes are happening and especially translations are incomplete since barely any translation team has started working on this new line. This is intentional since their work would be wasted otherwise if the stuff does still change further. So if you are using a translation of Wesnoth and see some English strings: this is no bug.

Some things for you to keep in mind:
* 1.8.x saves are likely not to be compatible with 1.9.x games. This is no bug and you can install both, 1.8.x and 1.9.x in parallel to play them. Eg you will have by far more players on the multiplayer server for 1.8.x than you will find for 1.9.x. On the other hand 1.9.x does feature many great changes, especially seeing all the new terrain graphics in action is really lovely.
* The new download has more than 300MB.

In general Wesnoth is identical on your Pandora and on your normal desktop system. That means that you can of course move savegames between the two and stuff like this. The same applies for multiplayer games with Windows, OSX and Linux users. I hope that you will enjoy this new release.
