Hexen II: Hammer of Thyrion

Hexen II: Hammer of Thyrion

Hexen II: Hammer of Thyrion is a cross-platform port of Hexen II.

Hexen II is a first-person shooter computer game developed by Raven Software, the third game in the Hexen/Heretic series, and the last in the Serpent Riders trilogy. Using a modified Quake engine, it features single player and multi player game modes, as well as four character classes to choose from, each with different abilities.

Hexen II: Hammer of Thyrion includes many bugfixes, improved sound and video modes, OpenGL improvements and documentation.

Hexen II source, and the Hammer of Thyrion source port, are free but the game itself is not. You must have an original copy of the game released by Raven Software and Activision, else you can only play the demonstration version.
