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.

Progress report with information on our goals for next release.

Posted by HexenEdgeOfChaos on Jun 23rd, 2012

We update this month with a progress report of where the team is currently at. After giving away a few games through our Steam group and officially cutting our final attachments to Doom 3(ARB Shaders) in the last few months, the team talked a bit about our best path for our next release. We had some discussion, posted some pros/cons and ultimately came up with getting a release out sooner rather than later.

The next release was penned as all of the cleric's episode(3 hubs, 12 levels) and we've been working towards that since our previous release. It was a little too spread out, perhaps, to get such a larger release together in a suitable time frame. So with that we've decided to refocus a bit and push a next release of Hub 1 and 2(8 levels total) for our next release, effectively getting new content to everyone much sooner. Then of course pushing for the full episode release shortly after(especially since we have the Hub already under development currently).

We'll have more news on that in the near future. For now a little concept some of you may have already seen for the cleric player model we are currently working on:

Finally, we are actively looking for a texture artist to join our team. Level textures and assets provided by a modeler are the main duties of this position. Just send us a message if interested! (Level designers too are always welcome!)

Happy gaming!

This is great news, I also love to know more about the Mage :) Are there any plans about her?

Aha! Thanks for that. IRC web link is fixed. As for the witch, we've discussed some general things regarding her and have some story made up for her. However there is nothing specific yet as she is the third episode of the overall plan. The fighter will be the next episode so we have a bit more details regarding his story right now.
