Caleb will need to muster all his strength to take down the mighty Tchernobog, who has managed to free himself from the grip of death.

Death Wish is a campaign for Blood with over 30 new levels, cut scenes, and more. All levels have been adapted so that Co-op play is not only possible, but enhanced with a helpful checkpoint system. The campaign includes several secret levels which all connect back to their episodes through special transitional missions.

The entire mod was developed by a single mapper, "Bloatoid", who has been editing with the Build engine for many years. The original Death Wish was created between January 2010 and October 2011. Updates have been made over the years based on feedback from players and observing online streamers, as well as the addition of several extra secret levels. A 4th episode is in development.

Let the festival of Blood continue!

I've joined Twitter! @BloodDeathWish

I'll be posting screenshots and videos there for people who want to see more frequent Death Wish content as I work on the next big update. I have a very busy schedule this year, so don't expect the new episode to debut until 2022. In the meantime, I wanted to keep everyone up to date on how things are going.

I'll also be posting some fun stuff.

I can also answer questions and respond to feedback more effectively on Twitter, so feel free to contact me there if you have a comment or suggestion.

As for the 4th episode, I have 2 levels completed and am done about 70% of the 3rd. I don't have screenshots for 3rd yet, so here are some revision previews for some old maps:

dwe2m2 1


New employee lounge in DWe2m2's launch facility.
You'll have to find a secret way to enter since the doors are locked by default.


dwe1m11 2

Some dockside refinements in DWe1m11, including flashing beacons on the dock and on the perimeter.
I've also added some things to connect different locations and make the progression less linear.


So follow me on Twitter for more frequent updates and videos. I'll be showing off previews of episode 4 every once in a while as the levels develop for people who want a sneak peak. Big announcements will still be made here on ModDB as well, but for an early look you now know where to find me.

I think I'v encountered a bug. The door to Key 7 in Mothership can't be interacted with. It doesn't have the dagger key symbol to open it whether I have all the keys or not.

This is a change, not a bug.

The outer door now opens by shooting a large button above the door, and the inner door opens with the Dagger Key. This allows you to grab Key 7 before the ending explosion sequence starts. I wanted to make this change because accessing the secret level attached to this mission was disproportionately difficult compared to the others.

The walkthrough text file was also updated to include these changes.

i just wanted to throw out that after playing a lot of classic and classic inspired FPS games lately I raised my review score and wanted to apologize for being too harsh.

it might not still be for me but i'm going to try an open minded fresh play. regardless this is a mod fans of Blood and classic Build engine style games REALLY should try and decide for themselves how they feel of course.

If you end up warming up to Blood a bit more there are some other level packs worth checking out like Eviction, French Meat, Bloody Pulp Fiction, Fleshed Out, Caleb Will Have His Revenge On Toronto, Way of Ira, Trauma Therapy, BAITD, etc. that are all free on ModDB. They have different authors so you might like one over the other depending on your preferred playstyle.

Did you ever finish Dusk? I heard that picks up near the end. I haven't had a chance to play that or Ion Fury yet.

thanks for all the mod recommendations!

i actually am on the last map of the last episode of DUSK and think i preferred the start haha. Episode 1 had a rural horror theme i liked and less "spawn in an army" moments. still a neat game and i'm glad its out there! i really do hope someday content creators like you can be adding to DUSK.

since i'm in a BUILD engine kick i'm playing Shadow Warrior classic literally right now. i can't find any fan projects for it here or anywhere. do you know of any?

happy new year btw!

That's my go-to for Shadow Warrior Content, try looking under the Maps/Codes tab.

I'm not familiar with Shadow Warrior user content, unfortunately. There are 2 official expansions called "Twin Dragon" and "Wanton Destruction".

How the f did this not get in the top 100 :(

DW is usually not in the top 100 for popularity unless it's around the time I update. I'm not sure if it's ever been #1, but I saw it at #2 below Brutal Doom when I checked in a couple months ago after the 1.7 update -- pretty good for an expansion to a game with a much smaller player base!

Pretty good? Dude, this is better than Hellbound or Black Mesa or Nightmare House 2 or any other fan made levels for any FPS I have played. Yes, the combat is janky because Blood, but if you could port it to GzDoom engine, and release it as a commercial game (like Hedon for example)? I would actually pay for it.
It's just a tiny matter of creating (or licensing) all original assets: sprites, textures, sounds, animations, music. But at least the janky combat could be fixed.

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.
