During the development of Portal of Praevus, Raven Software worked feverishly to lay the groundwork for yet another revolutionary action game: Heretic II. Based on Id Software's Quake II engine, Heretic II successfully blended first-person shooter action with a third-person camera to create an entirely new game genre.

This new perspective on the Heretic/HeXen universe was the biggest critical success in Raven Software's storied history. With dozens of awards and numerous accolades, Heretic II showed the world that third-person action games could be fun and intuitive, while it solidified Raven's reputation as one of the industry's top game developers.

The game was published by Activision Inc. and released to the public in 1998. Heretic II was one of the last 3-D action games to ship with fully playable co-operative gameplay.

Heretic II has since inspired a new generation of third-person action game development...a testament to the groundbreaking impact of the title.
