I'm always looking for ways to make some cash from Soldat while still having the game free. This version has some ads in the installer. You can choose to install some useful software if it is presented to you. Also you might see an option to install a Soldat Community Toolbar which will most of all keep you updated with community news and useful links. That's it. Without further adieu these are the new files. Download and have fun!
