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. They can capture more resources by raiding various capture points on a map.

These resources consist of food and weapons supplies. Every round is a day in Forsaken and each day requires you eat and use up 1 food resource for each member in your faction. You capture more food supplies and steal from other factions in order to keep from starving to death!

Hoarding weapon supplies allows you to save up for bigger guns, upgrades, and other special equipment. Weapon supplies are shared resources and you must work together as a faction to know when and where to use them most effectively.

The winner of the "war" is the faction that controls all the territory on the server, or starves the other factions of their resources. All 3 factions play at once over a series of barren cityscapes, fighting for control of this post-apocalyptic world, and ultimately for their survival.

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.

Sorry to hear about the mod, but its great to see you taking some steps to give the community something. Open sourcing the mod and releasing the assets is a fantastic contribution to the community. I'm sure many will benefit from it.

You guys need to work on your public relations... nobody has heard anything from you for a VERY (fricken) long time... actually, all I really care about is that you update this site... doesn't even need to be much media, maybe an ingame pic here or there or something... just so I don't see the disheartening "Last Update - 1 year ago" every time I check on your progress. I know you're not dead, but many people are writing you off as such.

The mod is dead. On the bright side, it looks like there's going to be a source code release shortly. :)

Just an update for those still watching, development is still in progress.

Currently a lot of the core members work full-time, so working on a modification in their spare time after a day job can be the last thing on our to do list.

As far as where the game is currently...
1) Finishing off a few models.
2) Finalizing animations.
3) Bugs bugs bugs bugs bugs.

The majority of the work to be done is art-related, so if you are interested in joining send in an application on the web site! We are primarily looking for mappers and animators right now, but definately interested in whatever else someone would like to contribute.

Look for a FRONT PAGE update in the upcoming months.
