Default Trailer and campaign description

Hey guys,

I am happy to present The Enemy Within 3.0 - completely new incarnation of the old and (I hope) well - known and liked campaign for A-10C. This version is how I always wanted it to be, but only now I had enough knowledge and contacts (kudos to all the voice actors!) to make it happen.

It is a paid DLC, as the changelog is too long to post here. It is not a simple refurbish, it is a complete reconstruction. I loved the original storyline but felt that it could be told in a much more entertaining and engaging way. So what I did, I have rewritten from scratch 20 out of 21 scripts, rebuilt from zero most of the missions (which means that even if they have the same name, they will most likely be taking place in a different location, with different enemies, situations, surprises and dialogues). I have replaced three missions I liked least with completely new ones.

And reduced the price of the campaign, feeling that it still is The Enemy Within, so it would only be fair.

Below some useful links for those who want to know more:

FREE VERSION OF THE FIRST MISSION: if you want to compare the old with the new or just get the feeling of what to expect, feel free to download it.

VIDEOS RECORDED DURING THE MISSIONS can be found on my YouTube playlist.

And for those having trouble with setting up the radios, a short tutorial:

might not play it for a while but it's worth giving you the $8 to keep you going. It's the least I can do. I also have 2.0 as well and only half way though it.

Thank you guys! Appreciate it! Hope that you'll find some time to try it out - IMHO it is much much better than 2.0.

Just bought last month and now on mission 6. I’ve never played any other campaign so I have nothing to compare it to, but I’m loving it.

So should I stop right now and restart with 3.0, or keep going? I’ve seen previews for Piercing Fury and immediately noticed it has way more voice acting and dialogue and I really like that for the immersion aspect. Will probably be my next campaign. If 3.0 has that, I’ll buy before continuing to Mission 6. I’m not too invested at this point since it’s still early. If you want my $8 now, just tell me . Otherwise I’ll continue enjoying what I already enjoy. Just looking for an honest opinion.

Thanks for contributing to this amazing experience. Words aren’t enough.

Hey! I think 6 missions of the original are enough to feel the difference. TEW 3.0 is what I always wanted Enemy Within to be - and it has over 4x more VOs, much much more background storyline and more consistent characters than the original. What I’d advise you to do - download the free M1 of the new version from the link above and check for yourself how it compares to the original and then decide.

As for the Piercing Fury you can’t go wrong with that, it is an excellent campaign!

Thanks for the reply. I think I’m spending more than $8 worth of my time just asking questions, so I’ll be sure to buy 3.0 later when I’m back at home, whether I ever play it or not.

But in the meantime, a few more questions

-Have you tested it in VR?
-Any known bugs?
-Are there different kneeboard items in each mission?
-Sometimes my kids watch me play. Any bad language in the voiceovers, or would it be kid friendly? I have no problems kicking them out of the room (like when Game of Thrones is in season), just wanted to know beforehand.
-Will my wife miss me?

I'll try to answer some of your questions.

I'm pretty sure at least one, probably several of the testers used VR and that the campaign is VR compatible.

I took a break from testing in the final phase, but I don't think there were any major bugs left before it was pushed for release, and even the small stuff should come as polished as it'll ever get before another DCS update requires a fresh layer of paint.

As far as I'm aware, the language is mostly child-friendly. It's certainly no Tarantino-script.

Flying combat sorties is never easy on the families. Consider it a TDY and tell her you'll be back before the end of the month, that's easily doable when flying one mission a day. She'll understand.

Yurgon ->

All missions were tested in VR, one of the beta testers flew exclusively like that, so yeah.

We've squashed lots of usual bugs before the release, so I hope it is bug free.

There are separate kneeboard pages for each mission + PDF files too.

I think there is swearing once or twice, but I am not even sure...

As for your wife - Yurgon answered it pretty well
