Welcome to the Battle for Wesnoth downloads page. The BfW project team officially releases the source code and builds for Windows, macOS, and various Linux distributions.

If the latest binaries are not currently available for your OS, please check back in a few days to see if they have been placed here. Packagers have been informed of the release, please be patient. In the meantime, read the FAQ.

Wesnoth is also available for OS X from Homebrew and Macports. Macports carries only the stable version. Homebrew carries stable releases, development releases, and can also build the "bleeding edge" master branch from the Git repository.

Stable (1.14 branch)

1.14.x is the current stable branch. These releases are recommended for most players, as they provide a well-tested and balanced game experience with only occasional bug-fix updates. Each version of this branch is compatible with each other. The online player community for it is also the largest and the add-ons server has a vast selection of content.

Source code

Windows (7 and later)

macOS (10.8 and later)


  • There are binaries for many different GNU/Linux distributions. Not all are always up to date with the current release. Please have a look at the Linux binary page for more information about the binaries for your distribution.
