Ever since I heard about a Hexen mod for Doom3 I couldn’t wait to play it. That mod is Hexen EoC.
A few years past and the team that created it finally released a 3 level demo version which turned out really nice! After playing through it all, I decided to take a stab at making a map for the game. While letting deadite (Eoc team coordinator) know I’v been making graphics and textures and things like that for quite some time now, and the team looking for more members, they gave me a choice between map or texture creation. I picked texture creation and they hired me on as one of their main texture artists. While the map I started on is still stashed away in a safe place for possible later use, I was more interested in making textures for the game, and I’ll have to admit, I’v been hooked ever since. Although you will only be able to see the stuff I’v made so far in the full game mod version yet to be released, you can grab the latest Eoc demo here until then: http://hexenmod.com trust me, it’s good!
EoC will be a new and free game, based on the original Hexen game that was developed by id Software and Raven Software. In order to play EoC you will have to own Doom3, have it installed, patched to the latest point release, and ready to go.

Here’s also an optional HD video trailer of the official game demo:
See you on the Edge, mortal… 😉
