by Rainier on May 2, 2006 @ 10:16 a.m. PDT

Act of War: High Treason is an expansion pack for the near-future, geopolitical techno-thriller RTS, Act of War: Direct Action. Developed by the prodigal Eugen Systems and loaded with new features, including modern-day naval combat and mercenaries, Act of War: High Treason is set for release in March 2006 for the Windows platform.

Get the Act of War: High Treason Patch #1b off WP (175mb)

AoW: High Treason v1.1b note :

  • if you have previously installed Patch 1 and can launch the game without problems, you should NOT download this new version of Patch 1.
  • if however you have previously installed Patch 1 and you weren't able to launch it, then 1) uninstall High Treason in its entirety (keep save games and profiles if you wish but make sure that the file "patchversion.nfo" is deleted), 2) download the patch from here and re-install High Treason, then the patch.

No modifications to the game executable have been made; this is the same patch with different installer and copy protection implementation.

However, if you are running Win64 and used to have issues launching the game with or without patch, installing this version of the patch may (or may not) help.


The "Modding Tool" is an advanced tool allowing you to change the models and textures in the game, alter their atributes, and save your changes to share with others -- essentially creating a modified version of the game (a "mod").

- Instructions can be found in the file "High Treason Editor Instructions.pdf".

- Some documentation is still in French, stay tuned...


Both the Map Editor and the Modding tool are released as "unofficial, non-supported goodies", to be used at your own risk, and without any warranties from Atari or Eugen Systems that everything will work... Of course we'll do our best to help out if you experience any issues or need assistance, but basically these tools are released as "freebies" for the community, to be utilized and supported by the community. For this purpose, Eugen Systems have created a Wiki section on their web site where you can share ideas and tips, and a dedicated forum on modding. //wiki knowledge base //Modding forum
