'''Hexen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel''' is the only official expansion pack for Hexen: Beyond Heretic, released on September 3, 1996. The game features 26 new levels: 20 new single player maps spread across three hubs, and six new deathmatch maps. Deathkings begins where the original Hexen story ended. Having discovered the Chaos Sphere after the defeat of Korax, the heroes are whisked away by it to the Realm of the Dead, and they must find their way home. Getting back will not be easy, though, for the way is blocked by the Dark Citadel.

The '''Doom press release beta''', the final pre-release build of the game to be distributed externally, was released on October 4, 1993. It was intended for use by journalists to allow them to trial the game before its release. The beta is time sensitive and will not start if the DOS system time is later than October 31, 1993. A utility created by Lee Killough is bundled with the public release on the idgames archive which locks the system time into range while it is resident in memory, allowing play to proceed.
