The Haunted is a fast paced thirdperson action horror game that focuses on delivering an intense multiplayer experience. Your goal is to liberate cursed places and survive the assault from the minions of hell. The game features several multiplayer modes such as coop-survival, demons vs. humans and demonizer. The Unreal Engine 3 powered graphics lay a perfect tone for the gameplay.

  • Playing as human is action focused survival gameplay with a huge
    arsenal of weapons and melee attacks, total freedom in movement and
    brutal, intense combat.
  • The minions of hell come in many variations and approach from
    everywhere to give you the feeling of a real fight for your life. There
    is no place to hide, together or alone. In addition to that, watch out
    for dangerous traps and environmental hazards.
  • Some multiplayer modes can have players taking control of vicious
    demon masters. Here you can spawn monsters and play them by yourself,
    or place traps and trigger the environmental hazards to create a
    unpredictable threat for the humans.
  • The monsters are harrowing and locations feature a classic horror atmosphere with a remarkable western-gothic style.
  • Solo Mode: The singleplayer mode pits one human against the forces of evil.
  • Coop Mode: Up to 4 human players have to make a stand against the
    undead. Send as much as possible back to hell and redeem the souls of
    fallen comrades.
  • Battle Mode: 4 Human players against 4 demons.
  • Demonizer: Similar to coop, but each dead human will turn into a demon until no one is left.

Hello everyone! Hopefully you all know that Hell's Reach released on Tuesday this week and I can assure you that it is a lot of fun! If you haven't gotten it already put some money aside from your budget of big holiday games and grab Hell's Reach, it's well worth it especially if you play it with friends.

Now as promised I have some WIP pictures to show off my new map: TH-Invasion, which is of course my first custom map for Hell's Reach. Originally I designed it on paper to be a re-imagining of TH-Shrine, however it quickly evolved into something different and Invasion will bring a unique style of game-play to Hell's Reach that the base maps don't provide. The environments for the game are built around the idea of constant flow and room to move, that's how the Haunted's game-play works: movement. Invasion will maintain that type of game-play, but it will do it in a more open fashion as opposed to the somewhat maze-like maps already in the game.

Some of you may have already seen these pictures, as I recently posted them here today, but for the rest of you please understand these are WIP. Take note that the pictures were taken in game-view and they look a bit weird because I have a default post process volume, in other words I just made the volume and haven't done anything it yet. Once again WIP.

There you have it. What you see here is the open area that will become the map, and the surrounding scenery that will provide the lovely backdrop.

Thank-you for reading, and I hope to have another update out next week!

I can't wait for release. Ive been with the mod for a long time, I still occasionally play it, I remember being really happy when one of my suggestions was taken up.

I can't wait for the game! I really hope you guys kept the changing patterns for each level, the way the game cycled day/night, weather changed and you had storms and all sorts...REALLY made the game great.

Pre-ordered.

For anyone with doubts: This mod (now being made into a retail game) won the unreal development award and funding to become a real game. Not just any mod can do that.

It was a mod for UT3, but it's not a mod anymore. It has been developed on the full version of Unreal 3 for commercial AAA release. I work for THQ and we are all pretty amp for this release. Congrats to the team!!! This game is bad ***!!

It's a game, not a mod.

Complete with funding and the backing of the unreal team.

do your research and play it before you decide.

The mod had more content and gameplay hours than many retail co-op games ive played lately.

I played this -mod-, before it became commercial and was impressed, but not enough to consider forking out 20 dollars for it.

And by backing of the unreal team, you mean a pat on the back and permission to go commercial.

I'm not trying to say "Oh noes! Dun buy it, iz horrible!" to anyone else, I'm simply stating I'm not convinced. Simply doesn't look like enough effort went into this to make it an actual game, than the mod it once was.

As for more content and gameplay hours, you're full of ****. I played it back and forth in that abysmal creation of a console-port game they called Unreal Tournament 3, and it was a fancy weekend at best.
