Darkwind War On Wheels: New Leagues Starting, Game Updates
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In a new email update Pyschic Software announced the beginning of a new year in its 3D cross platform massively multiplayer online wargame, Darkwind: War on Wheels. January 2043 in the game also marks the start of a new set of leagues, making it a good time for new players to join in the action. The update lists many new features for the game, the introduction of The Darkwind Gazette (a player written newsletter), and a new review of the game from New Age Gamer magazine.

Here's a list of recent updates to Darkwind:

- Lots of new types of vehicles have been added – we’re now up to 47
- Numerous new weapons and addons such as nitro boosters and rocket boosters have been added – we’re now up to 51. The new ballistic weapons such as mortars have added tactical variability to combats since they can fire over obstacles.
- Improvements have been made to the driving physics, including slipstreaming/drafting and handbrakes.
- Custom events have been added, so players can create their own race/deathrace/combat events and define their entry fees and prizes. ‘Pink slip’ challenges are also possible, allowing the winner to take the loser’s car.
- A number of additional wilderness maps and a number of new racetracks in Elmsfield and Gateway have been added.
- NPC Contract Attacks and Bounty Hunters have been added, spicing up the PvP intrigue and increasing trader-versus-pirate tensions.
- Specialist skills have been made available to high-skilled characters.
- Many environment objects (buildings, trees, etc.) are now destroyable – this is a precursor to the addition of player-owned camps, which is a feature currently under development.
- Integrated Browser – currently in prototype, we’re streamlining the gameplay process by embedding a web-browser within the game client, so you don’t need to switch applications when you want to do some gang management or set travel orders, etc.
