Download Brave New World Here

(New to Brave New World? Check out this thread for a brief explanation of what it does or dive straight into the Readme.)

A little over two years, we released Brave New World 2.0: what we were sure would be the last major release for a good long while, possibly even forever. I slowly began collecting reports of bugs that had slipped through 2.0's extensive beta process and held off for as long as I could for the inevitable minor bugfix update... which eventually evolved into the major one you now see before you.

While certainly not the massive jump that 2.0 was from 1.9, there's still a lot of new goodies to unpack here. Of particular note is a new "multitap" patch allowing support for up to 4 players, which resulted in quite possibly the most fun a lot of us have had in an online stream in recent memory. That said, the vast majority of the changes here are bugfixes or quality of life enhancements, such as wagers no longer being lost at the Colosseum if you lose and Celes remaining in her "defend" stance to indicate that Runic is still active.

Those of you who have been following me for awhile know of my fondness for New Years releases, so a release date of February 23rd might seem a little out of character. When it became apparent that we were going to need just a little more time to get things right as January 1st approached, it was eventually decided to instead release Brave New World 2.1 alongside Square's own official re-(re-re-re-re-re-re-)release of Final Fantasy VI. Call it a bit of "friendly" rivalry perhaps... or consider it a consolation prize for anyone who rushes out to buy it today and doesn't quite get what they were hoping for.

As for the future, the most immediate goal is to finish up the issues we were having with the Spanish translation (not included with the current upload, but hopefully ready in a week or two) and maybe even wrangle a French version out of a few of our players who speak it. Beyond that, I have long since given up on the idea that I'll ever be truly "done" with Brave New World, but I have moved on to other projects for the time being. Case in point, if you or anyone you know is a fan of Heroes of Might & Magic III, perhaps I can interest you in what I've been working on for the last several years.

And that's about all for now. Thank you all so much for playing and hanging around for these last ten years (where DOES the time go?) and being a part of this amazing community.

Are you referring to Inuksuk's Enhansa Edition mod?

That was my intention! I'm a huge fan of Brave New World. It doesn't have the insane polish that BNW has of course. Give it a try and let me know what you think

Brave New World comes with translation patches, so yes.
