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.
I recently obtained Doom 3 because I already heard of this up coming mod. Basically I bought it to play this mod. And oh boy, this is definitely Hexen. The quality is absurdly good and not only that it re-creates the atmosphere of the old classic Hexen series. I my self who enjoyed Hexen as a child in the past couldn't ask for more.
It scares me that this is just a demo, and it is most likely just a little sneak peek as to what is going to come. This modification is going to blow us all away and I look forward for the full retail version.
The only problem I encountered in the demo so far was that I accidently died forcing me to play it all over again. But this has already been mentioned by a previous reviewer. I also seem to walk straight to doors before they are even opened. Despite these little flaws it is worth the effort for downloading and I personally will keep my eyes peeled for updates and news regarding this modification.
I thank the team which is working on this more than a thousand times. And you may expect many players to enjoy this as much as I do.
Hi there! Just learned about this mod! Herretic was among my favourite games back in the old days as was hexen and hexen 2.So this mod has a soft spot for me as i hope the devs manage to finish at least one episode with all the character classes.
I have not played it yet but from what i have seen it looks very interesting BUT the levels from the screenshots look very empty...I mean the general architecture is great but there are no details of any kind...It somehow almost feel as a full 3d version of playing herretic/hexen with doomengine were everything is high res and many 2d models are 3d as well as the enemies but everything is so simple and empty that you know you playing a very old game...
I mean have debris all over the place,pottery,carpets,plants,bushes,vines grown all over the walls,haystacks,carts,corpses all over the place,blood,dead animals,flags,glasses,windows and when inside buildings have chairs,tables,carpets,painting,rags,bookselfs and in general make the world as a living place that got invaded and turned to hell.
1. visually very impressive.
2. jumping/climbing system very good.
3. run very well, very quick load times.
4. menus and of gui all very good.
1. why is noclip and such disabled?
2. cant change the player forward direction speed.
3. couldn't find any info on game play, like what are all the different glowing objects in-game and how to use them etc..
4. cant choose difficulty level -
all in all, very very good considering its an alpha.

I cant belive seeing this, now i have slow pc and playing hexen 2 h2 portal of praevous, i wish, once someone...somehow, sometime will make a mod for H2, in the same time, i plannig to learn and make my own mod, my dream is like this!
