Heretic was the first game to use the Doom engine outside of id. Produced by John Romero in cooperation of Raven Software, Heretic promises to be a great fantasy blastfest in a package! Fight off Gargoyles, Golems, Wraiths and Weredragons with your Dragonclaw, Phoenix rod, Hellstaff and Firemace! This game also introduces a new item system that's become a general must for most games, using with the familiar bracket keys. Items include Wings of Wrath, Polymorph Egg, Chaos Device, Disc of Repulsion, and everyone's favorite Tome of Power, that supercharges your weapons!

As much as i am pleased to deliver this action-packed video, but alas, this is the end of the HexenMageTower's mod-making for Hexen, (don't worry, there is still Heretic and Doom) and this is the version of the mod which i would like the fans of Hexen to have. Not the obsolete and underdeveloped Legend versions which float around the net, - including here. See the mod for what it truly stands for, get plenty of glimpses into the new level sections, combat and characters. Gameplay from the Marine Mod is also included, since Legend:FW just wouldn't be complete without it.

Have fun with the mod!

May the classic games live forever!

I wonder why Heretic, Hexen, Blood & Shadow Warrior died... These 4 were AS GOOD as Doom, but only Doom survived... Give me a remake for any of them with same levels, remastered, modern graphics, extra episodes & some new content... THEN I'll be please to spend money on a video game. Series like Call of Duty are definitely not for me.
