Genesis of Hexxen: Hunters

Ulisses Spiele Digital lends its developing prowess to this game, drawing inspiration from the revered table-top RPG, Hexxen: 1733. In this haunting backdrop, the world was thrust into chaos a century ago when the gates of Hell sprung open. But as darkness grew, so did the light. A group of valiant souls, aptly named “Hunters”, emerged, wielding newfound powers and dedicating their lives to eradicating witches, werewolves, and unimaginable terrors.

Engage, Battle, and Strategize

Players are invited to build their team of Hunters, selecting from a diverse roster, each equipped with unique abilities. With every quest, they will tackle massive hordes of adversaries, strategizing for each encounter. Whether it’s harnessing Goetz’s precision shooting or leveraging Faye’s arcane prowess to set the stage for Franziska’s deadly lance, each battle promises to be distinct.

Post-battle, players will find solace in their safe haven, a hub where wounds heal, weapons upgrade, and invaluable intel is shared.
