Return to Castle Wolfenstein

GameSpot talked to Marty Stratton of id Software today about the upcoming multiplayer demo of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Activision's popular World War II shooter. According to Stratton, the demo will be released tomorrow, and it will include the beach map from the previous demo, which includes the basic multiplayer and stopwatch modes, as well as Trench Toast, a brand-new map that features the checkpoint mode. The new map will also be available to download for those who own the full version of Wolfenstein.

Trench Toast is a terrain-based map that features lots of fortifications and sniper positions, as well as a number of canals and trenches for players to use as cover. The new map supports far more players--up to 32--than the original checkpoint map included in Wolfenstein, and it features lots of hidden areas and a wide-open style rather than the streets featured in the other checkpoint map.

GameSpot will have the new multiplayer demo available for download tomorrow. Until then, you can take a look at the new screenshots in the gallery above, which show off some scenes from the new map.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein was developed by id Software, Gray Matter, and Nerve Software, and it was released earlier this month by Activision. The game is set in Germany during World War II, and it lets players assume the role of B. J. Blaskowitz, an Allied special forces agent sent behind enemy lines to investigate Nazi experiments with the supernatural. The multiplayer mode features team-based combat with four player classes and a variety of maps. For more information, read our full review of the game.
