Halfway between remaster and remake, the new version of The Dark Army: Uprising has just been announced! And a playable demo is coming tomorrow!

TITEUF-85 from 85 Productions posted some news last night about The Dark Army – Uprising on MODDB

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!

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!

This is an unpaid position for voice acting multiple German main characters who speak English, in the upcoming The Dark Army: Downfall, Return To Castle Wolfenstein mod and sequel to the much-popular The Dark Army: Uprising which ended in the Top 100 during the 2016 Mod of the Year Awards Mod DB annual competition. The project is free and made by volunteers, no remuneration is foreseen.

They are searching for a voice actor who needs (and will need) to:
Have a high-quality microphone/headset in order to record.
• Know it’s an unpaid work; any claim will be ignored.
• Try not to leak any information about the project.
• Fill out a form, accept rights and the project’s modalities.
• Send a demo, in the original format (unmodified).

• Have a German accent while speaking English.

Core project was started in 2013, pre-development in 2014, and development in 2016. Development of the project has reached a stage where the characters need to speak. Your role will be important: you’ll give your voice to one or more German characters, who speak in English — the German accent here is really important because of the context the story takes place in: paranormal-horror World War 2; the enemies are Nazis. You can be hired to voice act multiple main characters of the story. The project design document (which includes the script) is 100-pages long; the story has many characters.
