OpenMW 0.32.0 Modern Game Engine Released

OpenMW is a new and modern engine based on the one that runs the 2002 open-world RPG Morrowind. The OpenMW engine will come with its own editor “OpenCS” which will allow the user to edit or create their own games. Both OpenCS and OpenMW are written from scratch and aren’t made to support any third party programs the original Morrowind engine uses to improve its functionality.
