Arx - End Of Sun is a new free and fan made game that is based on the first person dungeon RPG : Arx Fatalis developed by Arkane Studios.

In our game world you will play out the events ( with a liberal dose of poetic licence ) that precede the original story of Arx Fatalis.

The modification / total conversion itself is based on the IDTech4 (Doom3) engine.

You will no longer require a copy of Doom3 to play Arx - End Of Sun. We are now running on a custom version of the engine code and we use no assets from any commercial titles in our game.

Arx - End Of Sun is not an Arx Fatalis clone, Our game is full of new content based on the original game universe. We use no assets from the original game or any other commercial game. We are using a completely different and newer game engine. and we aim to capture a likeness and pay tribute to the original game of Arx Fatalis.

The Arx EOS total conversion is currently being developed by a very small team of hard working volunteers, everyone is working for free in our limited amounts of spare time, often sacrificing other activities or taking time off real work to work on our game. We hope that many people will enjoy playing our efforts when it is released.

Arx - End Of Sun - News Post - Late December 2011

I guess you know there has been no news for a while?

Having worked slavishly on the Arx - End Of Sun project in isolation for many months, it gives me great pleasure to welcome several new extremely talented members to the Arx - End Of Sun team. The enthusiasm for the mod is exponentially growing and so is our progress. In no particular order, let me introduce our new members:

  • Mr.Rocket - Texture artist and mapper
  • Tox - Modeler, texture artist and mapper
  • Nemyax - Modeler
  • DoomTrinity - Weapon animations and script-code genius

We are all working tirelessly in our pursuit to achieve our first fully playable quest & side quest as an internal mile stone. This is no easy undertaking either. Two of our members, Solarsplace (myself) and Mr.Rocket are also fully committed members of the Hexen Edge Of Chaos team too - so we are full time on two total conversion mods.

We have already implemented many original Arx game play elements along with several new features. Tox has already re-created and massively improved many of our in game static and animated models. We now have rather spectacularly animated sword weapons with multiple attack modes controlled by two modes of attack and player movement. Nemyax is the newest member of the team and is currently producing the carnivore rat models that you may lovingly remember from the original game.

Here are a few work in progress screen shots to wet your appetites!

The vast majority of our story involves new areas and environments for the hero to explore, within the subterranean world of Arx. While there are a couple of key locations you may remember from the original game, such as the Human Outpost and the Tavern areas which we have re-created from scratch - The rest of the content will be new.

You may notice the appearance of one or two of the ‘Wench’ characters from the Dark Mod? - This lady is actually Lizzy the bar bar keeper of the Yellow Tulip Tavern, and predecessor to Tizzy from the original game.

It is not 100% certain at the moment that any TDM AI models will make it to any release at this stage although they are of course superb! - Everything else that you see is custom made by the Arx - End Of Sun team.

News & Work In Progress - Late December 2011

Mr.Rocket has brought life to the world with many new textures and is currently working on a grand new map for the Snake Women’s temple.

The goblins, selfish as always only care about gemstones. They tolerate humans - but don’t give them an excuse to attack you.

Ok, guys... seriously, Arx Fatalis is THE MOST underappreciated game of all time, on any platform, ever. It is easily in my top 5 and when you've played games for 20 years that's quite a feat.. so PLEASE, please, really pretty pretty please, actually finish this mod, cause if you do it will easily be the best thing ever done with the Doom 3 engine.

Same here. If this mod is cancelled. I would have to create an Arx mod for NWN which sadly doesn't support a first person view. This mod must be finished.

Very excited for this. Arx Fatalis was one of very few games I've completed more than once. The demo gameplay looks excellent -- I can hardly wait to play it.

OT: Dark Messiah was IMO great. Flawed, sure. It could benefit from having all the zombie sequences amputated. Combat with orcs and humans was really, really great, especially on the higher difficulties.
