An update is necessary for everyone to understand what's going on as The Dark Army: Uprising is finally going to release in some days. The work's hard right now and there are a few things you need to know: the modification will be exclusive to Windows for some months, you'll have to wait some months before the other editions and other stuff release... Well, a bunch of important news today as the modification is finally going to be out — it's what I'm planning for this fourth year with you all.
» Strategy Guide and Project Design (making-of) coming February 20, 2016
You may know that a Strategy Guide, as well as a making-of document known as Project Design, are being worked on — it has been decided that both will get a release on February 20, 2016 not long before the Premium Edition's release. For info, both will be included in the Premium Edition.
» Special and Premium editions delayed to March 7, 2016
As you all know, the modification will be released under three different editions: Standard, Special and Premium — each of these will have different content. As a major part of the modification's extra stuff (guide, making-of...) isn't ready for release, I must delay the release of the Special and Premium editions as they're planned to contain some of the stuff in question. You'll have to wait March 7 to download these editions. Note that, even if these are available for everyone, one of these, the Premium Edition to be precise, will be temporarily locked and will require a password to be installed as it will contain rare stuff.
Glimpse of [Mission 2: Hunted Hunter » Episode 2: The Base].
Beware the powerful enemies of this level — X-Creatures, Super-Soldiers, Venom Guards... what a mess! Prepare yourself for war: it won't be easy, advised for hardcore fans of the series.
» Premium Access, contests to acquire the Premium Edition, starting 2016
The Premium Edition will not be available before March 7 (just like the Special Edition) — when it will be released, it will be download-able for everyone however it will be protected and you'll need a password to install it. This password can be obtained via the Premium Access program: a contest everyone will be able to play. If you're selected, you win a workable password. There will be multiple Premium Access contests throughout next year (until the Premium Edition becomes available for everyone).
» Early-access to Golden Guns and Sneaking Guns packs explanations
As you may know, Golden Guns and Sneaking Guns are skin packs for the modification's weapons. These will be released next year. Those acquiring the Special Edition of the modification will get Golden Guns earlier and those acquiring the Premium Edition will get both skin packs earlier: thanks to passwords/codes. You'll indeed have passwords/codes but you'll have to wait a moment before knowing how/when to use these.
» Mac and Linux versions delayed to April 18, 2016
Even if a lot of work has been done recently regarding the arrival of The Dark Army: Uprising on these platforms, Mac and Linux versions of the modification have been delayed to April 18. Also, you have to know there won't be multiple editions for these platforms and that these versions won't be compatible with the Golden Guns and Sneaking Guns skin packs.
» Modification's Mod DB forum opening soon — expecting feedback
A forum will be available from the modification's Mod DB page for the players to help each other. Despite the fact you'll get support/give support by/to other players via this upcoming forum, you'll more importantly be able to provide feedback from there, as there will be an specialized feedback thread.
» Feedback important for patches — expect few day-one bugs/glitches
Be aware there will be some unfixed bugs/glitches in the modification (on day-one at least). Some of these aren't able to be fixed right now, due to particular constraints, as some other will be fixed soon. A list of known bugs/glitches will be provided on release. Right now, no issue halts the progression. However, if you notice anything which is not in the list, you'll be able to report it in the forum.
