"Hexen II Mission Pack: Portal of Praevus" is an expansion pack for Hexen II, consisting of two new hubs, new enemies, and a new character class. It was developed by Raven Software and published by Activision on March 31st, 1998.

After the defeat of Eidolon, an evil wizard known as Praevus attempts to resurrect the Serpent Riders to use as his slaves. You must stop him from succeeding.


Eidolon has been defeated. Evil has not.

After the fall of Eidolon, a brutal winter smothers the land - the work of the nefarious wizard, Praevus, who now schemes to harness the darkest powers of the Serpent Riders. Who will dare impede him? Be you the Necromancer, the Assassin, the Crusader, the Paladin, or the scornful Demoness - former minion of Eidolon with a lust for revenge - you must wreak havoc against the wizard and defeat his evil vision. Lest you be numbered among the dead at his wretched victory.


The game consists of two hubs, the first being the familiar Blackmarsh area. The second is a completely new Chinese-Tibetan themed continent, Tulku. There are new enemies to populate these locations as well.

The expansion also introduces a new character class, the Demoness, a former follower of Eidolon who prefers to see her master remain dead than become someones slave.

Demoness Abilities

Other minor adjustments to the gameplay (interface, scripts, ect) were made as well.
