In "The Hidden", players choose the role of either a near invisible killer, Subject 617, or one member of an Intercept squad who have to capture him, I.R.I.S. In the simple but challenging gameplay of an 'one against all'? mode, Subject 617 creeps/sneaks through the maps armed only with a knife and three pipe bombs. The IRIS team carry a selection of weaponry, fully customisable at round start, from F2000 assault rifles through to shotguns or sub machine guns as well as a pistol as a secondary weapon. However, they can hardly see Subject 617 as, just like the 'Predator', only the outline of his silhouette is visible. On top of that the Hidden also moves a little faster and has many abilites such as pouncing, wall grabbing, corpse pinning and the fatal pigsticker attack. Therefore co-operation is necessary for I.R.I.S. if they wish to prevail (if they dont want to become the prey/victim themselves). This leads to an outstanding gaming experience on public servers:...

Great gameplay even tho the fact that it's only a mod I love it!

This is a mod with huge potential, but this was made a long time ago and the people how made it rarely update or just do any maintenance. That being said its still fun, you will encounter a lot of bugs that will frustrate you. I recommend you try it out, once you get the hang of it, it will be a blast.

This is an amazing multiplayer source experience. There are two teams, the knife wielding failed experiment 617, also known as The Hidden, and the IRIS agents dispatched to kill it. Playing as the IRIS agents, you are allowed to select from several weapons, two side arms, and special equipment. You and several team mates try to eliminate the almost invisible Hidden on various maps. Playing is The Hidden, your goal is to pounce around the map, picking off IRIS agents one by one. You are equipped only with a knife, but you can jump around the map very rapidly. Your most useful ability is that you are at all times almost entirely invisible, allowing you to get out of an area undetected. But make no mistake, you are still visible, and will be seen if you hang around too long. This game is not dead, and many people still play it.

Really fun mod, i find myself enjoying it alot. could use a little more work on the graphics do.

it is an awesome game keep at this game and never stop

It is a good mod but there still a little room for improvement it needs to have a distraction for the humans like zombies the survivors fight the zombies while the hidden is killing the survivors

Very fun to play. Even though this mod is old many still play it and hopefully it will stay that way.

Absolutly amazing!!

Best MOD EVER! Needs to become an official game!
