Deus Vult II is a twelve level episode replacement WAD created by Huy Pham (Doom Marine). As with the first Deus Vult, it contains maps rich with nigh-overwhelming opposition, in the vein of Alien Vendetta or Hell Revealed, with difficulty increasing sharply in the later levels.

It received one of regular awards during the 2008 Cacowards as well as the Mordeth award.


Deus Vult II modifies several weapons in the protagonist's arsenal and adds a couple of custom monsters, coded through DeHackEd tweaks including the flying baron of Hell seen in Erik Alm's Scythe 2 as well as the Cleric from Hexen.

It also features three different soundtracks: the "Ultimate" soundtrack heard in ZDoom (all levels except MAP19 use MP3 music), the "idgame" soundtrack heard in ZDoom (maps 12 and 22 use MIDI music again), and the MIDI soundtrack heard when playing in a port without support for ZDoom's old MAPINFO syntax. The MAPINFO lump is also used to give a different music theme to the text screen between MAP31 and MAP32, and another for the transition between MAP20 and MAP21, from the other text screens.
