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.
It doesn't feel like it has been a year since our first demo release. People joined, people left, solid progress has surely been made. Our current team is still very much enthusiastic about the project and daily updates in at least one department of the project is the norm. So what have we done? What is our future?
Well as all of our past news items have stated progress continues daily. Mapping, models, textures, sounds, music, code, you name it! Really the whole team is jiving pretty well right now and things continue to stay on course.
For the future? Well our next release has always be planned to be the entire first episode and would conclude the Cleric's journey. That includes 3 full hubs(about 3.5 levels per hub) and would be a little over triple the size of our demo release. There's also discussion on what to include on the other classes if for nothing else than some public testing of their mechanics. It will all depend on how things continue to progress in the time frame we are eying. A couple new team members of course wouldn't be a bad thing!
We hope to have some very cool updates in the coming months so stay tuned!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Hexen: Edge Of Chaos. We love games like Doom III that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
