War for the Overworld gets final expansion and big new update

This one's a keeper.

Dungeon Keeper-style game War for the Overworld gets its final expansion today alongside a big new update.

The expansion, called The Under Games, is a new seven-level campaign that revolves around skirmish-like matchups across new game modes. The AI has been overhauled, there are three new underlords and there are multiple difficulty settings that should go down well with veteran fans.

Meanwhile, patch 2.0 adds new scripting support for the map editor as well as a remastered main campaign, with new cutscenes and an extended ending sequence.

The launch of War for the Overworld's final expansion and 2.0 patch amounts to a send-off for the dungeon management game by developer Brightrock, which is also releasing an Ultimate Edition on Steam and GOG.com. This includes the base game and all its expansions.
