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.
