Anyone ever play Car Wars tabletop game or fancied the idea of driving around in a vehicle armed to the teeth with weapons and blowing the hell out of your opponents?
Well can I point you in the direction of Darkwind
DARKWIND - 3D turn-based racing & vehicle combat driving game - Windows Mac
It's a MMO turn based game set in the near future aka Mad Max but based a lot on Car Wars.
You can play for free but won't have access to the full game such as markets and training for your characters, but the subbies are very reasonable IMHO.
It's partly web based so you can work on your cars, gang etc in your lunch hour at work lol but you do need to download a client to play the actual combats etc - it's not all combat, some are just pure races.
The physics are very well thought out and functional.
I've been playing for a little while and because I used to be a big fan of CW back in the 80's I quickly took to this and have to say I really enjoy it.
So drive on by and say hi
In game name: Valkazon
