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.
Website updates and a new composer make up this round of news.

For this month's news post we'd like to start out by introducing our new composer Mystic Realmz! We've been quietly in search of a new composer for a little while and were directed over to Mystic Realms, who was more than thrilled to hop on board. He's already started producing some tracks for the project and I must say we're all a bit excited to start expanding our musical library for our designers. You can find some of his previous work around the net especially a few that have been in other doom 3 mod projects and in Joe Goss's animated work. Welcome to the team!
We've spent a good portion of the last few weeks updating our website. You can now find updated links, official videos, all of our downloads, and a completely updated media section. In addition to updated information site wide, we've also added a fantastic IRC chat widget right in the site. This is perfect for anyone who always wanted to chat but never wanted to try IRC. Simply go to our contact page, or Hexenmod.com and enter your nickname. It's that easy! Upon connection it will send you directly to our chat channel. No need to install or learn a thing!
As we've had good fortune expanding the team lately, we would still love to add to our pool of level designers especially. If you have some level design experience and a love for Hexen then send us a message! Until next time...
