Death Wish is a massive new Blood campaign that has been under development since January 2010 and has finally been released. Every level is highly polished, and you may even see a few Mapedit tricks you never thought possible! The creator is a long-time Build veteran who has pulled out all the stops to make this the most amazing, original user content for Blood ever released.


  1. Over 30 levels spread out across 3 episodes, which includes secret levels and transition levels for flowing smoothly back into the main campaign.
  2. 6 new cut scenes, appearing at the beginning and end of each episode explaining the story and its developments throughout the course of the game.
  3. New story, taking place after the events of the original Blood and its add-ons while staying within the same mythology.
  4. The Tome message system, giving the player hints and story tidbits during play to further deepen the story and reveal hints or secrets.
  5. All the levels have been adapted to be playable in Co-Op mode, so you and up to 7 other friends can tackle Death Wish together.
  6. All levels include modified enemy and item placement depending on difficulty settings for added replay value. Even long-time Blood pros will find a challenge in Death Wish's brutal Extra Crispy setting.
  7. A very detailed plain-text Walkthrough is included. It is split into 2 sections: One with the basic player path discussed and the other revealing all available secrets.
  8. A Commentary text file is included, revealing the creator and lead QA tester's thoughts on Death Wish and its content.
  9. A detailed README file is included, ensuring that everyone can get things working properly even on varying file system configurations.
  10. Simple drag-and-drop installation — no confusing or malfunctioning installers.

A Long Time Coming

It has been ages since our hero Caleb set out against the evil Cabal, and this may be his biggest challenge yet. Three complete episodes, complete with the elusive secret levels, await.

The journey begins in the mountains and quickly takes you to the unforgiving, icy north. From there you will traverse a plethora of varied environments from dry deserts to dank caves in pursuit of your longtime foe Tchernobog. Years have passed and the world has changed, but Tchernobog's burning desire for power has remained the same. With Tchernobog's new powers to aid him, will Caleb be able to defeat him once again before it's too late?

Oops I posted this in the news comments instead of the mod's main page comments, wanna make sure this gets seen so sorry for doublepost.

Cant get this to work. Im using windows 7 64 bit and I've got the gog version of blood. after following the gog installation instructions for this mod when I click on dw.bat I get an error saying cannot start or run due to an incompatability error with 64 bit version of windows. blood alone works just fine and I've played other mods for it using the mod launcher thats on the gog forums. I have absolutely no idea how to use dosbox and any help would be appreciated. I also dont know where else I could post this.

I also realise that the instructions said to use DW GOG.exe but when I click on it dosbox launches, does some stuff and then exits, the game never starts.

That's strange. Are you using bmouse by any chance? I had that happen to me when I forgot to copy bmouse into the correct directory.

If things still aren't working correctly you could always try just launching the mod straight through DOSBox to make sure it at least works that way.

Nope I'm not using bmouse. I also had a friend guide me through how to use dosbox and I could get the game to launch that way but when it did it was windowed and when I tried to fullscreen it the colors got messed up.

Well on a hunch I installed bmouse and the shortcut did do more this time but it still closed before starting the game.

Wow this is amazing. All of the levels are expertly designed with amazing architecture. These are some of the best levels I have seen for any game, let alone for Blood. The third episode had me at the edge of my seat. The first level (of the third episode) scared the crap out of me.

If there are going to be any more updates I suggest adding more colored lighting. I see a lot of blue and red colored lights but they don't affect the sprites.

A sector with colored lighting (that affects the sprites) qualifies as a "special effect sector," the number of which I can use in a level being limited. For a heavily colored level such as Shadehaven or an effects-heavy level like Duck & Cover it would be impossible to use accurate / extensive colored lights. Whisper Peak was tricky to make since all the sectors with "fog" qualified as special effects that quickly ran up my total, forcing me to use very simplified architecture.

Help please,I'm at the 3rd level, past the skeleton key door, and the game crashes with a message: ERROR (6012) src\actor.cpp

I started new game yesterday, played until 2nd level, then before beating it, I overwrote with today's update. Any idea how to make it work?

The mod's been fukin sweet so far btw ;)

Amazing mod.
Out of the 30 levels I think there maybe only 1 or 2 I didn't like as much. Otherwise it's solid all the way through.

There is an amazing variety of environments all with different well executed atmospheres and interesting well thought layouts.

Gameplay is always fun and health-ratio is pretty much perfect in every map.
There is also some neat effects here and there and tons of secrets to find in each level.

A must play for any fan of Build engine games.
