New World Beta

Another tactical shooter, another multiplayer test demo

With New World Order's October 18th release drawing ever closer, publisher Project 3 have released a new version of the game's multiplayer-only beta. Lead programmer Jim Malmros is quoted as saying that "all issues have now been tackled and this version 2.0 will rock". If you fancy taking the new version for a spin to see if it truly has fixed the problems that afflicted the original beta release from earlier in the summer, head over to Project 3's website and download the 123Mb file. You'll also need to apply a Microsoft DirectX patch which fixes some major lag problems the game was having with DirectPlay. Related Feature - New World Order screenshots
