02 - Seven Portals

The Seven Portals lead to many dangerous places...

Greetings mortal, are you ready to die?
The Seven Portals are the first hub of Hexen.


The game begins with an introductory level, the Winnowing Hall, intended to familiarize players with the game's controls and interface. The action then takes place within a large fortress complex on the fringe of the conquered world of Cronos. The fortress features a central courtyard where the seven portals are located and three sub-regions, the Guardians, each with different themes - Ice, Fire, and Steel. The hub's primary puzzle is relatively simple and requires the player to gain access to two switches, which open the seventh portal.
