The ultimate and the last iteration of the long surviving Heretic mod which will try to rise to the same standard as the final version of it's Hexen counterpart - Legend FW. The design will be taken more or less after Legend FW and all the lapses, glitches, under-developments and other flaws of the version 2007Final.3 (which was the last) will be addressed. Expect the darkest, most gothic and polished to the max version of Wrath of Magic to date. My Farewell Bow to the realms of Heretic. Old school. New style. Aggressive, pull-no-punches classic FPS action.

Yes my friends, the hour is here! Wrath of Magic development has officially been resumed. It has been over a year that it's been dusting on the digital shelves, when i stopped the progress between E2M5 and E2M6 in favor of Hexen-based projects. The Hexen road is almost at an end, and my Heretic-based grand project finally has the space to rise up. While the finalization of the Cleric mod / Marine Mod for Hexen and their optimization for Legend 8.33 is still going on - and thus not allowing full speed development, but things are definitely going forward, and i have already moved on to E2M7. Some new screenshots to boast the new glory :-) As i have examined, a good amount of testing will be necessary, in order to maximize the gameplay potential - as i did with Hexen. But that is quite far for now, as i am just about two-thirds of the game in, levels only. Some things are still quite chaotic, as WOM:FW was conceived using rather primitive means, - and the vanilla design offers pretty much nothing - which means basically building everything from scratch and go texture-by-texture afterwards.

The mod will be released when all 3 episodes are completed and tested, not any earlier. No demos. As for the episode 4 and 5 - too soon to think about those. I cannot give an ETA yet, cause the mod has been on ice way too long, and some things there are in a rather raw and untested stage, - or use inferior modding techniques. Very roughly, to at least partial satisfaction of your curiosity - i will name late summer 2019. Maybe earlier, and maybe later. One thing in certain: the game is afoot!!!

say goodbye to the vanilla game

Ice-covered part of the level has a mighty new look

this final battle area near the exit has been remade accordingly

bringing some life to this one

Alternate view of the revision, and now requires Wings of Wrath for combat

...and this looks waaayy different now!!!

Hey,
The mod will come out somewhere in the 2nd half of 2019. I am very much looking forward to continue it's development, but i cannot work on all the mods at the same time. Right now i am working as much as i can to conclude the Hexen:Legend saga. That means to finish the final DLC "Mercenary: Dark Power" and Legend 8.33 update, which is the final finishing touch. I planned to release the Mercenary earlier, but the balance came out wrong, and i had to start from scratch. I can't resume working on Heretic and still be busy with Hexen, but trust me, i am doing everything possible to get to that point as fast as i can.
My ETA on resuming the work on Wrath of Magic: Farewell Edition is end of January 2019. In about a month, tops. Sorry for the delays, but i am doing my best.

Regards,
~HexenStar

Thanks, i'm honored!
One thing for sure, i dare to say that it is
going to outshine any other Heretic mod, hands down.

And I'd vote for it myself, if it was completed ;-)
Well, either this one, or Legend 8.3 (lol)

On that positive note, i will reveal that most likely
Gothic Chapter mod will (reluctantly, but still) be
canceled, due to the increasingly high standards in
design, established by Legend FW/WOM FW. Such mod
for Doom will take forever to make. So, alas, no go.

However, "Marine Mod 2" will be developed instead -
and this time it will bring all the guns and glory
into the world of Heretic: Wrath of Magic FW.
