Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Hits Double Toothpicks!

Eleven entire years of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory marks landmark in game landmarks. It's hard to believe that 1.1 decades have passed. It's hard to believe that over 19 million "down-loads" have been "down-loaded". It's easy to believe that the Old City has been captur- Old City Lo- Old City Captured!

Many are the player hours. Many are the maps and mods. Incalculable is Splash Damage's gratitude to everyone who made, and remade, and most of all played Wolf: ET.

For all the Fuel Dumps dumped, the Siwas Oasised, the Seawalls Seawalled, Würzburg Würzburged, Rails Gunned, and Gold Rushed, we can only say V-4-3

Happy Birthday, Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory!

Extraction is Dead, Long Live Dirty Bomb

Remember when Dirty Bomb went to PAX last year and came back as Extraction? Yeah, about that…

Long story short, the game’s back to being called Dirty Bomb. This not only better reflects its personality, but also ensures that we have a single, consistent name across the globe. On top of that, we get to use #PlayDirty on Twitter (#LetsExtract just didn't quite have the same ring to it - well, except for dentists, maybe). If you want to find out more about the rebrand, check out the official press release.

To celebrate this name un-change, Nexon’s teaser website for the game has received a fresh coat of paint and beta sign-ups have reopened. If you want to help us test Dirty Bomb, get on over there and put your name down for a chance to be part of the beta.

In related news, Nexon have also confirmed that there will be dedicated servers available for Dirty Bomb in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Yay.

We’ll have much more news about Dirty Bomb soon. Stay tuned!

Axeso5 bringing Dirty Bomb to South America

Since announcing Dirty Bomb and partnering with Nexon and Destiny to operate the game in North America, Europe, Australia and Russia, we’ve had a lot of requests from players to bring the game to South America too. We’re pleased to be able to confirm that exactly that is now happening: We’ve teamed up with Axeso5, one of the most experienced operators in the region, and they will be running Dirty Bomb in all of South America.

If you live in the region and want to help test Axeso5’s Dirty Bomb infrastructure, you can sign up for their upcoming beta test on Axeso5's freshly launched Dirty Bomb website.

Splash Damage Wears Hats, Raises Money for Charity

March was National Brain Tumor Awareness Month and it culminated in a great event called Wear a Hat Day. Never one to miss out on a chance to dress up, we promptly threw our collective headgear behind it.

We had a whole bunch of team members show up at work in their best/worst hats (see picture above for evidence) and managed to raise some money for brain tumor research in the process, with wristbands going for £1. We managed to raise £108, with Splash Damage matching everyone's contributions for a final tally of £216, all of which will be going to the charity.

You can find out more about Wear a Hat Day on the Brain Tumor Research website.

We've Hit 2 Million Player Accounts! Free RAD Bux Up For Grabs Inside!

Goodness - we've just hit 2 million registered player accounts for WarChest and Splash Damage! It's hard to believe that just over 12 months ago, we launched our very first self-created, owned, and published game with RAD Soldiers - a big milestone for the studio. We've had countless of happy players since, and we're not afraid to celebrate a little with you. To mark the occasion, we're giving away 500 RAD Bux to 5 lucky, random posters. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and we'll pick the lucky winners on Friday.

Remember, if you've never posted here before, you can simply use your RAD Soldiers account to sign in.

Finally, if for some inexplicable reason you've not yet played RAD Soldiers and enjoy strategy games that are all about blowing up your friends, you're really missing out! You can grab it for free from the Google Chrome Store (PC) or the App Store (iPhone, iPad).

Good luck!
