Death Wish is a new campaign for Blood with over 30 new levels, cut scenes, and more. All levels have been modified for Co-op play. The entire mod was developed by a single mapper, ensuring consistency and quality.

I started working on a 4th episode for Death Wish. The edits to old levels will probably be minor. The new episode continues where the 3rd left off. I'm taking my time to make sure the level quality stays high, so don't expect this update until 2021 (I don't plan to wait until October to release it like I usually do, though). I'll release some preview images from time to time until then. Here's a look at a few completed levels:

dwe4m1 1

dwe4m1 2

dwe4m1 3

dwe4m1 4

dwe4m2 1v2

dwe4m2 2

dwe4m2 3

dwe4m2 4

That's it for now. I'm testing in DOSBox and occasionally in Fresh Supply, so there shouldn't be any compatibility issues on release. The new levels will be outfitted with all the co-op play extras that were added to the old levels in the v1.5 update.

If anyone is wondering about the label change, it's because Death Wish technically isn't a mod, but rather an expansion/add-on, as it only uses vanilla assets (aside from the videos) and should be compatible with any Blood mod that is compatible with the base game.

Until next time!

I love it that this game is simply never dead! I played dead wish when it came out some years ago singleplayer, then at least 2 times in coop, it is the best addon ever so I am very very very pleased to read this news!

Thanks! I don't read about people playing it in coop very often. :-)

The new maps will include the checkpoint system and other coop extras that the other episodes received. I'll be upgrading the old content here and there as well -- more on that in my next news update.

There's a thought that's been making the rounds in the back of my head and I thought I might transfer it to yours: a secret level that is based on a section of Killing Time for the 3DO. Any part. There would obviously be a lot of creative liberties, but I think a lot of the elements of Killing Time would translate pretty cleanly into a Blood map.

Also Hopscotch on the Rocks is a ****** bop.

Okay, when I get some free time I'll have to check that out.

I like this version 1.6.11. I like how the all Death Wish games so far can play well with the originalDOS version of Blood.

This game will work with Blood One Unit Whole Blood version 1.21 via DOSbox 074 in Mac Catalina and possibly other 64 bit operating systems. The game may quit at times due to a lack of memory, but don’t panic. In DOSbox just type in "dw.bat" to restart the game. If the game won’t start and you see “can’t find fm chip", just restart the game again with "dw.bat" and wait two seconds before hitting any key, and the game should start up well.

Okay, on E3M3 I found a moon key that no one else seems to have acknowledged. I'm guessing it was added in an update? Where the hell does it go to?

I checked the latest version in Mapedit and there's no Moon Key placed in that level. Did something drop it?

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.
