Warzone 2100 is making its way to Steam and will, seemingly, be free-to-play. The title's Steam version will be handled by publisher and developer Underdone Gaming.
Warzone 2100 initially launched in 1999 on PC and PlayStation. After developer Pumpkin Studios stopped supporting the real-time strategy/real-time tactics hybrid, it was released as an open-source project in 2004, allowing its dedicated community to continue developing it.
