Lambda Wars is a Half-Life 2 RTS Total Conversion Mod, available now for download

Vortal Storm has announced that its Half-Life 2 RTS Total Conversion Mod, Lambda Wars, has left its beta phase and has been officially released. Naturally, Lambda Wars – like most TC mods for HL2 – is a free standalone Source Engine modification.

This mod brings the war between mankind and their brutal Combine overlords to a traditional real-time strategy (RTS) setting. Players will lead the uprising as a commander of the Resistance or crush the rebellion as an overlord of the Combine. Both factions feature a full host of units, abilities, buildings, research and defenses. Furthermore, the mod features full-fledged RTS gameplay and a robust RTS interface.

You can download the mod from here. Below you can also find its key features.
