Return to Castle Wolfenstein is built on the awesome Quake 3 Arena engine by the id Software team. The game itself is loosly based on World War II seeing the Axis and Allies do battle.
The games flawless attention to detail, fluid multiplayer and single player gameplay means that it has already been modded a great deal! These mod's do not let this game down either adding to it's wonderful single player campaign and also creating new multiplayer environments which see's this somewhat arcade war simulation taken to the next level in excitement...
now get this damn game and load up some mods because it ROCKS!
Since Tuesday, Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Cooperative is available to download for free on Steam, and here on Mod DB, to celebrate Return to Castle Wolfenstein's 20th anniversary - in Europe this time.
As you may know, the cut campaign of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory that Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Single-Player & Cooperative is attempting to recreate was a squad-based one. While this element is only partly featured in Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Single-Player - with the presence of said squad as recurring allies to the player - it is not as much class-based as it's supposed to be. With Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Cooperative, things are different, however, as the mod is played via RTCWCoop, that is now featuring class-based gameplay, as of its latest beta version, which is required to play Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Cooperative in the best conditions. While RealRTCWCoop does not possess this element yet, it is only a matter of time, and the mod can still be played with this port, minus the elements mentioned above.
As indicated above, Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Cooperative is only fully compatible with one version of RTCWCoop: RTCWCoop 1.0.3, which is still in development. While the latest public release of RealRTCWCoop is already based on RTCWCoop 1.0.3, it is not the case of the of the latest public release of the actual RTCWCoop, which is still RTCWCoop 1.0.2. As such, if you are aiming to play the mod using RTCWCoop, you will have to download the RTCWCoop 1.0.3 beta. Why is that? RTCWCoop 1.0.3 is an upcoming version which will get rid of a lot of bugs/glitches, especially related to AI Scripting. Tests have demonstrated that it is impossible to complete most of the missions of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Cooperative in prior versions. Not to mention, the RTCWCoop 1.0.3 beta also brings class-based gameplay, which is very appropriate for Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Cooperative. RealRTCWCoop does not have that feature yet, since the RTCWCoop 1.0.3 build it uses is older, that is why your experience with both will be different.
Compatible with both cooperative ports of Return to Castle Wolfenstein (RTCWCoop and RealRTCWCoop), the Mod DB version comes with an installer - allowing you to select which addons you want, among other things.
Exclusively compatible with RealRTCWCoop, the modified version of RTCWCoop related to Return to Castle Wolfenstein free remaster RealRTCW, the Steam version can be subscribed to (downloaded) from said remaster's Steam Workshop - and it comes with an installer - allowing you to select which addons you want, with all maps and compatible addons pre-installed: Enemy Territory User Interface, Wolfenstein 2009 Sounds, and European Style (optional).
My mods are always very story-driven, and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Single-Player & Cooperative is no exception. While it's not as much cinematic as my previous Return To Castle Wolfenstein mod, The Dark Army: Uprising, it's intended: due to feedback from the community, and in order to respect the original material as much as possible, dialogue/story is occurring in real-time. A pretty effective change that also did not prevent me from writing more than 200 lines of dialogue for this mod; a concept which will be carried onto my future projects related to this game.
Speaking of the voiceover, I will be releasing a Q&A Interview of all involved voice actors in the coming weeks. They've been doing such outstanding work in the past few months, and I want them to have the spotlight. You'll be learning more about these unseen heroes who voiced your heroic allies. Stay tuned.
The yearly Mod of the Year Awards have recently started, and as such you can now vote and help Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Single-Player & Cooperative on its quest to become the 2021 Mod of the Year.
Every vote counts, especially for mods related to such old shooters. For example, 5 years ago, in 2016, The Dark Army: Uprising - another mod of mine - became the first Return to Castle Wolfenstein mod to ever reach Top 100 during the Mods of the Year Awards, and that was happening for Return to Castle Wolfenstein's 15th anniversary. And with its remastered release last year, it did it again. And it's all thanks to the community.
I work very hard on these mods, and them getting recognized definitely helps. With Return to Castle Wolfenstein's 20th anniversary going on, now is the perfect time to mark Return to Castle Wolfenstein modding history once more, and make it to the Top 10... or even, with some luck, Mod of the Year. Let's prove Return to Castle Wolfenstein is still kickin'!
So please go ahead and throw a
stielhandgranate vote, fellow WolfPlayers.
As you may know, I have a Patreon account for my modding activities. My mods are released for free - always have been, and always will be - so those who are/will be kind enough to donate (aka become my patron) will be getting in-game goodies as well early access to demos and/or full versions of my current and future projects, depending of which tier they've subscribed to (subscriptions ranging from 3-5 EUR), and of course that includes Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Single-Player & Cooperative and its future expansions.
