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:
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.
This is what he said about the upcoming news.
It’s almost been a year since the release of The Dark Army: Uprising and the release of its latest patch. It came back after many hardships following its failed initial release almost two years ago, and received a lot of acclaim here on Mod DB, to the point it ended in the Top 100 Best Mods of 2016 during the 2016 Mod of the Year Awards which were held at this time, thus becoming the first Return To Castle Wolfenstein mod to ever achieve this feat. However, truth be told, we were never truly satisfied with what we had accomplished, and we were left with many regrets. Many other great, better Return To Castle Wolfenstein single-player (but also multiplayer, coop…) maps and mods, would have deserved to receive such praise. So we decided to put the development of the sequel, The Dark Army: Downfall, on-hold, and focus on the development of a new version of The Dark Army: Uprising, secretly, in order to make the mod truly worthy of its success, but also for the love we received from the players on Mod DB as well as other websites and communities all around the world.
Two days ago, we started teasing something, as you probably noticed, both here on Mod DB and through social networks. Earlier today we have revealed what it was: the aforementioned new version of The Dark Army: Uprising! Baptized 2.0, this new version will be halfway between a remaster and remake: we have re-imagined the story, the environments, the ambience… all according to the feedback you were all so kind to provide. We are itching to create the most appropriate experience possible, using your reviews, comments and thoughts as guides. But more feedback will be necessary to improve the newly cooked formula we ended up with… with the help of a public demo!

Return to Castle Wolfenstein is an excellent game by Gray Matter Studios,
using the engine of the game called Quake III.
Unfortunately, few mappers were interested in doing mods or maps (single player), to give continuity to the story of the hero B.J. Blazkowicz.
Enjoy and thank you,

It’s been awile since last Q&A interview. Yo$hik is an Ukranian RtCW mapper who has contributed alot for the RtCW scene.
One of his creations is DARK MATTERS SP MAP MISSION, VENDETTA to name a few.
Q. Hello Yo$hik. How are you doing?
Hi Ray. Very well, as far as possible in this cold and wet deep autumn, thanks.
Q. Thanks for having this interview with you.
This is also a very interesting event for me. Not every day to you: knock-knock, we’re up to you to take an interview 🙂
Q. Is there a special meaning behind your nickname?
So, by this nickname hides a small particle from my childhood. My true name is Sergey, but when my godfather came to me on birthday’s or holiday’s, he always called me a hedgehog. Yes, it sounds funny. Hedgehog is the verbatim translation of the word from my native language, but if somebody said it on my language, you would have heard like «yoshik» (?????). And when in the far 2004 I got access to the Internet network, and there was a question of choosing a nickname, I chose «Yoshik». So he lives with me to this day.
Q. What made you first discover RtCW (Return To Castle Wolfenstein)?
That year, when RtCW came out, I did not have a computer, just like my friends. And neither me nor my comrades knew about the existence of this game. At that time in our small city, there were popular computer clubs where you could rent a PC for a fee and play some game to take fun. Popular then was in most cases networking multiplayers modes, but sometimes played singles campaing. And on the some day, the club’s administrator put a few new releases, among which was the Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Severance Blade of Darkness. I played a small amount of time, but both of these games fired me deeply into my heart.
