heXen:Edge of Chaos will be a new and free game, based on the original Hexen game which was developed by id Software and Raven Software. Edge of Chaos is being developed by a team of fans who have always loved the original Hexen since it came out. In fact, most of us spent countless hours with the entire series. When id Software released Doom3, we immediately saw immense potential in the engine itself; the 'Hell' maps gave us the inspiration to make a hack-and-slash game based, primarily, on the original Hexen.
Now announcing the date of our exciting first release! Herein lie words, wallpapers, and something special with which to tease you.

Hear! Hear! That time is near! We have been crunching away every day and it's all wrapping up. At this time, we would like to announce our planned release of the first playable version of our game Hexen: Edge of Chaos for November 2010.
It will contain the Cleric's first hub which consists of 3 full maps and some 1.5 to 2 hours of gameplay. You will fight monsters, solve puzzles, fail puzzles, use weapons, utilize artifacts, break lots of stuff, and curse our names to Chaos when you most likely die a few times along the way. Surely you all expect some degree of obscurity that comes with puzzles for this game... and the price for failure is steep...
We know, we know! We've read comments from followers: "Don't tease us!" and "Oh you silly people... causing a frenzy with your single image release! We need MEAT!". (Ed: Soylent Ettin is made out of people!) Well then, we say how about something more!
For you today, in our state of excitement, we have a Hexen: Edge of Chaos wallpaper in various formats....even for your iPhone! All made from our specially talented artist Slash.
Also for you today is a very special clip. If you've read our history journals then you are aware of what happened to the past heroes, and also know that strange things are brewing. Well... YOU have been summoned! Evil things are happening indeed in this world... Will you answer the dear Astronomer's call??
