Splash Damage's first game - Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory - was released exactly THIRTEEN YEARS ago. Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory was born on 29/05/2003. Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory was originally planned to be released as a commercial expansion pack to the popular FPS Return to Castle Wolfenstein and later as a standalone game.
SplashDamage@Twitter: To celebrate #WolfET's birthday we're giving away this signed copy! #RetweetToWin - Winner chosen @ random!
However, due to problems with the single-player aspect, the multiplayer portion was released on 29 May 2003 as a freeware standalone game. In January 2004, the source code for the game logic (not the game engine) was released to the benefit of its modding community. The game uses a modified Return to Castle Wolfenstein engine, itself being a heavily modified Quake III: Team Arena engine (id Tech 3, which has been open-source since 2005).
As of the first day of the 2010 QuakeCon, 12 August the entire source code was released under the GNU General Public License v3.Multiple source ports have been started.
While the attempts made by OpenWolf and ET:Xreal concentrate on innovating the renderer, the most active community project ET: Legacy focuses on fixing issues by backporting improvements from ioquake3 while staying binary compatible to the original game client, server and its mods.
This is a new Allied-attack map, created by ETc|gouki, Nico$ and ETc|#.Jay.#
= Storyline =
The Axis Forces have begun to manufacture the deadliest V2 missiles ever created. They are producing these mega weapons at a heavily-guarded secret factory and the first of these new V2 missiles is ready to be launched against the Allied attackers in Europe.
Allied HQ has discovered the secret location of the V2 factory and despatched one of their elite Commando Units to destroy the factory before the first of these missiles can be launched against them.
=Allied Objectives =
**Capture the forward flag and defend it.
**Destroy the factory generator.
**Repair the Allied Command Post and defend it.
**Destroy the Axis Command Post.
**Destroy the main generator, thus preventing the V2 missile from being launched.
This is Magic's new map release, CFT Firelite. As the title of the map suggests, it's a new "CTF", ( Capture The Flag ), frag map. On this version, however, it's not just a case of capturing and defending various flags in order to win the round.
Each team must capture the enemy's flags and get them all the way back to their own base. Each team must complete this objective for a total of three times to gain victory over their opponents.
Magic would like to thank the following members of the Wolfenstein Community for their help in creating his new map:
This is a Wolf ET remake of the Return to Castle Wolfenstein singleplayer classic map, "Dark", which has been created by Pheonix and R3b3L.
The Allied troops must steal a Jadgpanther tank and fight their way through the long dark road that leads to Wolfenstein. The Allies will use their stolen tank to blast open an access route that will take them to the tomb of the war god, Heinrich, who the Axis forces are determined to resurrect in order to change the course of the war.
Once the access route to Heinrich's tomb is opened, the Allies must plant and detonate dynamite inside the underground tomb in order to rid the world of the threat of Heinrich once and for all. The Axis forces will do all in their power to prevent this from happening.
"I'm sure that this map, regardless of the objectives, will be appreciated by most of the veteran RtCW and Wolf ET players and I hope that it revives many beautiful and nostalgic moments from Return to Castle Wolfenstein." - Pheonix
Enemy Territory Snipermap UJE skull sniper beta 1 made by [UJE] Niek
Again a kind of spooky map. It's a dark arena setting ,where it's possible to cross ... The gates will open every 2 minutes so non crossers will have a good time too , i hope..... It's not easy to cross you first have to find the way.
* Alot of funny and scary sounds in it * Gate scripting made by Sage (Thanks for that) * Beast inside
