What is ET: Legacy?

ET: Legacy is a modification of the free multiplayer first-person shooter Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.

After two decades of peace the world is burning again and it‘s time to choose sides. Battle it out to restore order in the world in this class-based first-person shooter that emphasizes teamwork and strategy over lone-wolf game play.

Set at the West Front during World War II the player can choose from different classes to once and for all defeat the enemy in historically inspired battles.

Why create ET: Legacy?

ET: Legacy was founded to restore W:ET's unique gameplay mechanics, while introducing them to a heavily cleaned up code-base and advanced graphics that meet modern standards.

The goal of this modification is promoting Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory as a viable competitor to modern games like SD‘s DirtyBomb or Crytek‘s WarFace.




What is different?

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory contains some of the most liberal features in the gaming industry for both clans and players.

While this is nothing unique, all games in this category have micro-transactions, sometimes even pushing to the point of being Pay-to-Win. In Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory there are no micro-transactions, no purchasable cosmetics that distract from gameplay, no perks being bought with daddy's credit card. Everyone has the same equipment at hand, thus raw skill, reaction time and team-play are the only differentiating factors between players.

Community Servers

Clans have the possibility to set up their own server with settings, mods and maps of their choice. This way clans and players have the chance to play and train together in the environment of their liking and form their own small community. You decide whether you want a realistic and unforgiving environment with Friendly Fire and for example realistic bullet damage. Or whether you want a more relaxed approach for the occasional after-work clanmatch to blow of steam.

Custom Content

You are tired of playing the same 10 maps over and over again, with no real variety? Then you definitely should try ET: Legacy. A pool of hundreds of custom levels at stock assure a constantly changing gaming experience for the player base. Setting custom skins, sounds and settings further differentiate servers from each other.
You can set-up your community server so it exactly matches the preferences you like.

You want to host special events to keep your community interested and loyal? Christmas and Easter specials or even a spooky Halloween night are absolutely no problem.

Basic Concept

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is set during WW2 with Axis and Allies. You can choose to support either team with one of 5 distinct classes which assure there is a role suitable for you. The individual Kill-Death ratio is only secondary. You die for your country, but make damn sure your death counts and your mission is successful.



The Soldier doesn‘t have any special ability, but the muscles to carry heavy weapons.

You are the spearhead to every attack wave.



The Medic can heal and revive teammates with health packs and syringes.
You are the guardian angel of your team.



The Engineer carries dynamite, landmines and pliers to destroy, kill and repair.

You are the key to the operation.



The Field-Op can support teammates with ammo and call havoc upon enemies with air and artillery support.

You are the operation coordinator.



The Covert-Op is responsible for espionage, reconnaissance and light sabotage.

You are the eyes and ears to your team.

Hello! Since I'm having fun to this game. Just a quick question, Is No Quarter mod (New weapons, skins etc) compatible to ET: Legacy Standalone?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Yes it is

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

any thoughts on porting the whole thing to the unreal 4 engine?

Well, thoughts yes, but with the current manpower it is simply impossible. Also we want to maintain backwards compatibility for now to keep all the custom assets from the original W:ET working.

i guess idtech4 is even out of the question, have you guys ever seen what Unvanquished ( Unvanquished.net ) has done with the engine

They are using a modified ET-Xreal engine or OpenWolf, which basically is Xreal with some additions.
For the most part its capabilities are the same as ours. However they ditched the old renderer completely and only worked & used the newer one, while in our case this was not an option.
Our project aims to restore the legacy of W:ET and a big aspect of that is to keep all the existing assets (or as much of them as possible) compatible with the game. Because of compatibility problems with this modified renderer it is unfortunately not an option for us.

Maybe in the very distant future when we have own assets and a larger map-pool of our own, we can re-evaluate whether the W:ET legacy can be restored even without being compatible to all the assets the community has created over the course of 13 years.

You guys should improve the graphics and launch it with Steam and this great game will be reborned. Good job!

Thank you very much! Improved graphics are in development, however we can't ship it through steam. We still (and probably always will) use standard W:ET assets and don't have the rights to re-release them unfortunately. But we will do our best to retrieve its old glory!

I'd like to help you guys with the asset replacement.

I'm talking:
-texture replacements - using public domain texture sources or creating my own from scratch with normal/specular/relief maps - GIMP2
-map enhancements - optimizing and increasing the detail level on official maps - Radiant
-model replacements - mostly static level models, recently I started working on player models - Blender
-audio - using public domain recordings for the effects or Reaper for music

I have no problem with releasing all my work with a free to edit and redistribute license.
