Where Hexen Ends, the True Nightmare
Deathkings of the Dark Citadel picks up where Hexen left
off. Having finally obtained the Chaos Sphere, you find yourself suddenly
transported to the Realm of the Dead where the sphere is powerless. To escape
this unholy, evil world and return to the land of the living, you must journey
through a blighted wilderness and lay siege to the mighty Citadel of the
Deathkings. In their destruction lies the only passage to true freedom.
20 new, never-before-seen levels that are
darker, deadlier and even more unspeakable than the original Hexen.
Additional levels specifically designed for
Deathmatch play (multiplayer mode).
All levels designed by Raven Software, the
original creators of Hexen.
Full version of Hexen required to operate. Works with both
Windows 95 and DOS versions of Hexen. Requires 5MB of hard disk space to
DOS products such as this are not intended to run on newer
systems and normally will not work on such systems. If you don't have a DOS or
Windows 95 system don't order this game.
Computer Player, July 1996
"You thought it was over when you grabbed the Chaos Sphere
in Hexen. How naive can you be?! When you're dealing with Doom
clones, it's never over - not even when they're titled, 'Final, really,
last-edition, ultimate-end Doom - no sequel to follow version 9.99.' If
Hexen didn't give you enough monster-bashing puzzling levels,
Deathkings of the Dark Citadel will give you more of what you want.
Specifically, there are three new hubs (episodes) consisting of 20 brand-new
levels designed by the team at Raven. Though there's nothing really new in the
weapons or monsters department, if you really enjoyed Hexen, then the
new levels and puzzles will be enough. As with add-on disks for Doom,
Deathkings of the Dark Citadel requires that you already have
Hexen version 1.1. If you don't have version 1.1, don't worry; the patch
