Forsaken is set in the year 2009, 3 years after a genetically engineered virus escaped a secret government lab wiping out mankind in a matter of days. Out of the surviving human population 3 factions formed; The “Governors”, a band of ex-military soldiers lead by a fanatical General. A freak and ruthless “Religious Cult” that say the predicted this 'cleansing' all along, and the final faction are ordinary people, a handful of Civilians bewildered and angry at what happened to their families and everyone they knew. Forsaken is an urban warfare multi-player mod for Half-life 2, featuring various unique gameplay modes & scenarios and is the depiction of these three factions; and their struggle for power, territory and ultimately survival, within this dark new era of human existence. The objective-based team play is all about the control of territories (maps) and the resources in those territories. At the start of a "war" each faction has a certain amount of resources....
All good things must eventually come to an end... but not without full source code and a playable build.

I regret to inform you that Forsaken has officialy died. The team apologises to everyone who was watching this mod for not making a full release, but we leave you with gifts. We have released the last playable build of the game (minus some features) for all to enjoy... but that isn't all. We also released all art assets, map assets, and source code to Forsaken as a separate download for everyone in the community to learn from and expand upon. We hope you enjoy our parting gifts to you.
