Improvements from Hexen: Beyond Heretic and Quake included destructible environmentsmounted weapons, and unique level up abilities. Like its predecessor, Hexen II also used a hub system. These hubs were a number of interconnected levels ; changes made in one level had effects in another. Furthermore, the Tome of Power artifact made a return from Heretic.
The gameplay of Hexen II is very similar to that of the original Hexen. Instead of three classes, Hexen II features four: Paladin, Crusader, Assassin, and Necromancer, each with their own unique weapons and play style.

Thyrion is a world that was enslaved by the Serpent Riders. The two previous games in the series documented the liberation of two other worlds, along with the death of their Serpent Rider overlords.

Eidolon is supported by his four generals, themselves a reference to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. To confront each general, the player has to travel to four different continentseach possessing a distinct theme Medieval European for Blackmarsh, Mesoamerican for Mazaera, Ancient Egyptian for Thysis, and Greco-Roman for Septimus.
Then, finally, the player returns to Blackmarsh in order to confront Eidolon himself inside of his own dominion Cathedral.
What was originally supposed to be the final game in a trilogy, the sequel to Hexen was originally titled Hecatomb but was abandoned after John Romero left id Software in Activision The Age Of Space - Naive Diver - Hexen that the previous entries in the series, Heretic and Hexen, were different enough from one another that they should treat them as separate entities going forward, instead of just one final game to complete a trilogy.
Hexen II was based on an enhanced version of the The Age Of Space - Naive Diver - Hexen engine. However, due to the prevalence of 3dfx hardware at the time of release, the Windows version of the game installs an OpenGL ICD opengl This driver acts as a wrapper for the proprietary Glide APIand thus is only compatible with 3dfx hardware.
Much of the music in this game is remixed versions of the soundtracks of Hexen and Heretic to match the hub themes. Activision acquired the rights to publish versions of the game for the PlayStation and Sega Saturn.
A modification titled Siege was created and released by Raven Software in using updated QuakeWorld architecture, aptly dubbed "HexenWorld". The production concept was to eliminate a normal deathmatch environment in favor of a teamplay castle siege. The basic premise was to divide the players into two teams—attackers and defenders—with each side either assaulting or protecting the castle respectively.
At the end of the time limit, whichever team controlled the crown was declared victorious. The mod featured appropriate objects used in the single-player portion of the game, namely catapults and ballistae. The classes, however, were drastically altered with new weapons and abilities, reflecting the departure from the normal deathmatch experience presented in HexenWorld. This time the source was released under the GNU General Public Licenseallowing source ports to be made to different platforms like Linux and the Dreamcast.
It focuses on the attempted resurrection of the three Serpent Riders by the evil wizard Praevus, Тише - Земфира Против Мумий Тролль - Земфира Против Мумий Тролль takes place in a fifth continent, Tulku, featuring a Sino - Tibetan setting.
