The Dark Army is a single-player modification for the original Return to Castle Wolfenstein game on PC, only running on Windows operating system (following update from the developer).

The development is directed by TITEUF-85, as well as the production. The mod will feature many cinematic scenes, apparently these were started recently; the current cast for the characters is currently unknown. Latest update on social networks finally reveals that it will be a standalone modification, and not an add-on as it was first announced. This mod will be released next year, as a single-player experience only, in addition to the well known war themed First Person Shooter. There is still some unrevealed content at the moment.


The Dark Army takes places late in 1944, some weeks after the failure of the Nazis in Isenstadt (Note: In Wolfenstein, there is no direct indication of the exact date of when the game takes place, it occurs at some point after September 3, 1944 based on Befolgen Sie! propaganda posters, but some ingame citations appear to show signed and dated material listed as '1945'). A British undercover agent working for the Office of Secret Actions (a.k.a. OSA) organization reports that Deathshead has survived to his Zeppelin accident, and is now working on a totally new bio-mechanic experience, in order to create a new army of Super Soldiers. According to the Intel the British agent provided, Deathshead, hidden in a secret base in German mountains, has send infantry troops in a village not far from his position, for some archaeological excavations, in order to find a special artifact, named “The Dark Relic”. This relic is somehow important for his works, in order to create his Super Soldiers, with a totally new and powerful form of energy. Deathshead plans to create the ultimate army of Super Soldiers with this dark and powerful relic — with the goal to institute a new order.


Here are the different features of the mod :

  • About ten new and exclusive missions.
  • New and remade guns.
  • New and better light system, with anamorphic lens flares.
  • Colored GFX 2D in-game icons.
  • Finest blood effects with new sprites.
  • New HQ sounds.
  • New HD textures.
  • Better assets, a new title screen.
  • Very much more.

More features are going to be revealed soon, regarding the latest news.


The development of the project was started on July 2013, by TITEUF-85 (a french developer), and revealed later in the month.

Following latest Status Report from the developer, the project is on its 61% of global completion.


The project was teased as a simple additional map pack for Return to Castle Wolfenstein. There were many pictures and information before the official reveal. During the announce, it was revealed that it wasn't a map pack anymore, but a real addition for original game, a modification.


In first place, it was announced that there will be a public playable demo some weeks before the game release and a closed demo for some mappers, before the public one. It was confirmed, in the second Q&A Interview, that the plan was abandoned, for some distribution reasons maybe. But finally, the developer announced a demo version for November 2014, for the players to test the mod the year before its release.
