The Haunted is a fast paced thirdperson horror-action game with focus on a intense multiplayer experience that is all about making a stand and liberating cursed places from the minions of evil. The game features several multiplayer modes such as coop or demons .vs. humans, where enemies are spawned and controlled by players. The outstanding visuals lay a perfect tone for the gameplay.

Sorry for the lack of updates. The haunted is still alive and the first version will be released prior to October 17, which is the MSU phase2 deadline. It will support online multiplayer as well as gameplay against AI. It's still unbalanced and unoptimized and will include one map.

The problem with the current concept is that it doesn't fully take advantage of the potential this mod has, that's why the gameplay may head in a different direction for future versions.
It's still a bit uncertain where exactly we're heading and i can't make any promises on things.
Since mod making is really complex these days, many design decisions have to be made based upon the available resources.

It's safe to say that we're focusing more on the single player aspect, since making a multiplayer-focused title for ut3 is ironically not a good idea due to the lack of online players and the inaccessibility of the online system. We haven't tested the haunted in an online game with multiple players yet, since nobody i know is able to host a ut3 online game.

Regarding the team, ScHlAuChi(Gameplay/Level design) and McLogeNog(Level design) are currently working with me on the haunted. Depending on where the mod will go in the future, we will need some additional help, especially a good environment artist.

But more details on that after the first version is released.

Here are some new pics(more in the media section), but you'll hopefully play the mod by yourself in a few days.

To be honest I actually welcome Single Player mods more than Multi Player mods right now. Keep up the good work. :)

Alright, i'll look forward to playing when you release it for the MSU competition. To bad Unreal 3's online play fails horribly. You even need to authenticate for a LAN game! What the crap?

Singleplayer mods are much better on UT3... I never play online, I'm always offline playing mods. Same for all uts
