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.

Updates on the technical hurdles overcome and also on QA map testing.

Posted by HexenEdgeOfChaos on Sep 28th, 2010

Having worked out many of our performance issues, compression issues, and code-based problems of the past, these last 2 months have brought many of the loose ends together. Saves are fully working, our first hub is all linked together, and persistent data has been implemented between levels of a hub. It has been exciting times indeed!

We formed a small testing team and began testing this summer. We've ironed out a lot of map bugs; still more to go. As always, new level shots can be found in our random screenshots thread here: Hexenmod.com

As we're wrapping up and polishing our first release we will be looking to communicate with news sites and hosting mirrors so we can have an efficient, widespread, well-planned release. Still no dates yet, but perhaps for next month's news update we'll be in a better position to make such a statement. The time is drawing near.....

I.d. Software should give you some support imo! I mean, come on, the more unique quality mods bring value back to a game, especially when they plan to release a next installment.
