In my last post yesterday @titeuf85 mentioned that the demo of The Dark Army: Uprising would be released today. And now it’s released!

 

 

 

Unlike before, you must own the original game, Return to Castle Wolfenstein™, to play. Recommended installation process is described right below — please, follow these instructions:

  1. Install Return to Castle Wolfenstein™ on your computer (SteamGOG…).
  2. Extract tdaV2_demo.zip anywhere on your computer.
  3. Move the content of the extracted folder, which is itself called tdaV2_demo into your Return to Castle Wolfenstein™ game directory.
  4. Launch the demo from one of the provided .bat files, located in the core folder called tda_demo(tda_x86.bat for 32-bit and 64-bit computers; tda_x64.bat for 64-bit computers only).

Once in the game, you will need to adjust your gameplay settings. Some users may however experience some display issues, which are yet to be fixed. See the FAQ for more information.

The Dark Army: Q&A Interview with WolfWatch

The Dark Army is back with an interview in partnership with WolfWatch!

As promised, The Dark Army: Downfall is back this month, a half-year after its official reveal. In case you haven’t noticed, today marks the eight birthday of Wolfenstein (2009). As you all know, The Dark Armyexperience is meant to bridge the gap between the classic and the current episodes of the famous franchise, thus it is set chronologically between the aforementioned game and The Old Blood, which was released in 2015. That’s why today is the day for an exclusive Q&A Interview, in partnership with WolfWatch.

The last time we directly published a Q&A Interview was in 2014, but earlier this year we had the chance to be interviewed by WolfWatch. So we have decided to answer some of your questions related to The Dark Army: Downfall, but also the upcoming RTCWCOOP Anniversary Upgrade (which is coming October 5), The Dark Army: Uprising and other projects! Additionally, this interview will feature an unreleased 2015 talk with some of the voice actors of The Dark Army: Uprising.

“The blazing conclusion of The Dark Army”

  • How can you describe The Dark Army: Downfall?

The Dark Army: Downfall is the second part of The Dark Army. It is the direct continuation of its prequel, The Dark Army: Uprising. The Dark Army experience is meant to bridge the gap between the classic and the current episodes of the Wolfenstein franchise, thus it is set chronologically between Wolfenstein (2009) and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. Be aware tho that The Dark Army: Downfall is not “the second half” of The Dark Army: it’s the second part, and it’s not equal in size to The Dark Army: Uprising. The Dark Army was split into two indeed, but both parts are not equal. As it was stated during its reveal back in February, The Dark Army: Downfall is the core of The Dark Army experience. It is the blazing conclusion of The Dark Army, while being longest part of the story. The Dark Army: Uprising can be seen as a prologue, when The Dark Army: Downfall, on its side, can be seen as the main story. The Dark Army: Uprising introduced you to new characters, new game-play mechanics, new character philosophies… which will all be expanded in The Dark Army: Downfall.

“This could be our last project featuring B.J.”

  • What kind of story will be told in this second part?

The Dark Army: Downfall may just be our last project, or the last featuring Wolfenstein‘s B.J. Blazkowicz as the main character. The story revolves around him in The Dark Army: Downfall. When the story of The Dark Army itself was written back in 2011, it was way shorter than it is actually. When Wolfenstein: The New Order was announced in 2013, to release a year after, the story of The Dark Army had been completely revised, and started more and more to be focused on the main character, B.J. Blazkowicz. As the story became way longer, the project was officially divided in 2014, after the release of the aforementioned game. That’s when the goal of The Dark Army became clear: bridge the gap between the episodes of the past, and the current/future ones. Thus the story had to bring something logical at its climax, which would have the player say “Oh damn! That’s a clever way to bring the events of the latest games!”. Hopefully, the story of The Dark Army: Downfall will have all it needs to make you say that once you will complete the campaign. Don’t see the story of this second part as being action-driven: along the franchise’s typical action, you’ll also find emotional, tragic, yet beautiful moments, especially since this could be our last project featuring B.J. Blazkowicz. There’s a deep message to transmit through this aspect of the mod. To conclude on that, all famous quotes used during promotion since 2013 will make 100% sense once you see how the story ends!

New Wiki Created for The Dark Army – Wikia!

A somewhat new (created in April 2017) wiki was created on Wikia for the Rtcw SP mod called The Dark Army! That’s right – The Dark Army now has a wiki that’s entirely dedicated to everything about the mod, like characters, weapons, items, and more. You can find the link below.
