HeXen: Edge of Chaos is based on the original Hexen game that was developed by id Software and Raven Software. In order to play this game Doom 3 must be installed.
Official Project Summary:
The Doom3 engine (also called IDTech 4) is still a great engine that can compete with the latest games coming out today. It was with this in mind that we began, over 4 years ago, the development of heXen:Edge of Chaos.
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. You’ll even be able to visit some places that you’ve seen before in the course of your previous adventures.
Our story ties into the expansion packs and also touches upon the Heretic narrative; especially the incredible atmosphere painted into these rich worlds and their darkling journeys.
The download is for Windows and Linux.
