    Is heretic 2 any good?

    I first got my hands on the full version of Heretic II in early 2017 alongside Portal of Praevus to complete my Heretic/Hexen collection. Honestly, it's a pretty good game with enjoyable combat, and the switch to a third-person perspective doesn't stop it from feeling like a competent shooter. I wish I could have experienced the multiplayer at its height, though. That said, I really wish that the source code was made public like the other games and that Activision and ZeniMax would settle their disagreements over the series so that it would get rereleased on Steam for newer gamers to experience, alongside Portal of Praevus. This game doesn't deserve obscurity, in my opinion. I think we should do more to ensure it gets out of that state.
  2. I've been waiting quite a while for updates on what you've been doing with Heretic II. Thanks for coming back to this great, forgotten game. Hopefully, you can keep building on this. EDIT: I've given it a try, and the framerate in-game seems to be capped. Any way of fixing this, or is it something you have to work on?

    A new blog post from the Hytale team has been posted. This one is all about the game's server tech.

    Ion Fury, a new Build Engine game out now.

    New update's out (on Steam, at least)! This one has a new level that was shown off at PAX South, secondary fire modes, and more added stuff.

    If you're looking to get caught up with what the team has revealed so far, here's the blog archive. The latest entry is about the Hytale Model Maker that was used to create the game's assets and will ship with the game itself so players can make their own stuff.

    I'm going to keep hoping they have something coming. They did this for a reason, and they haven't taken the banner down yet. Maybe they just needed a little more time before the official announcement.

    It should also be mentioned that Ion Maiden has voxels now.

    Any Heretic/Hexen fans here?

    All of the games are pretty good, from what I've played. I still hope Portal of Praevus (Hexen II's expansion) and Heretic II get digital re-releases someday so everyone can have the complete collection without having to hunt down physical copies. I don't feel it's right that the first three games in the series (and Hexen I's expansion) get to be on Steam and these two are out in the cold. I mean, I can understand why-- different publisher and all-- but it's just not fair. Speaking of Heretic II, I feel like it's a bit underrated. It's genuinely a good game, despite the perspective switch.
