In an unplanned move, work has begun on HardQore 2! HQ2 will not be on Quake 4, but instead Doom3. The mod size and scale will also be much smaller and less ambitious than the original HQ. The HQ/AA team has spent many years working on the Ruiner Mod for Doom 3 and in return have gained enough knowledge and assets to help us create a sequel very fast.
As of today, HQ2 is playing identical to the first one and is already 50% complete. We will be adding more new features to the mod and improvements to the 2d game play over the original HQ. We plan on releasing the first one level build this summer. More info and screen shots are coming soon.
