Hexen2
Hexen II is the sequel to Hexen developed by Raven Software using the Quake engine in 1997.

StoryEdit

The Enemy is Eidolon and his four generals who each rule in a different part of the world of Thyrion:

  • Famine, in the Medieval European themed land of Blackmarsh;
  • Death, in the Mezo-American themed land of Mazaera;
  • Pestilence, in the Ancient Egyptian themed land of Thysis;
  • War, in the Greco-Roman themed land of Septimus.

Each of the generals are guarded in their lands by countless minions.

Game PlayEdit

Hexen II is similar in concept to its predessesor:

  • There are four characters to choose from: an Assassin, a Crusader, a Necromancer and a Paladin each with different  attributes and experiences, skill sets, advantages and disadvantages and of course unique weapons.
  • The game has a hub based design with your character having to return to a central hub after completing tasks and gathering items in the surrounding levels.
  • However unlike Hexen the characters in the game gain experience which enhances their skills and gives them special abilities.
  • The game introduced rather more complex puzzles than previously.
  • There are numerous items and artefacts to store in a characters inventory for later use.
  • There are monsters and enemies that are appropriate to the style of the Hub.

Game StructureEdit

The game consists of three opening levels and five hubs:

  • Blackmarsh with three levels: Blackmarsh, The Mill and the Barbican.
  • The King's Court Hub with four levels: King's Court, Palace Entrance, Innner Courtyayd and Stables.
