Hell Revealed II (HR2) is a 32-map megawad for Doom II. The name implies it is a direct sequel to the legendary Hell Revealed, but neither of the mappers who made the original were involved in this project. Instead, HR2 was made by a team of 14 members led by Jonas Feragen with the original Hell Revealed mapper Yonatan Donner's approval.[1]. Released in December 2003, HR2 was considered one of the most difficult mapsets at the time and a worthy sequel. It won a Cacoward in 2004.

HR2 had a long gestation, with development beginning in 1998. A "beta" with 17 maps was released in February 2000, but several years passed before Andy Olivera pulled the project together and released the final version. This included Olivera reusing one of his older maps as MAP28.

Differences between beta and final versions[edit]

All the levels in the beta version made it to the final version, but several levels were moved around:

  • Hardcore was moved from MAP08 to MAP13.
  • Excess Meat was moved from MAP11 to MAP18.
  • Raw Hatred was moved from MAP13 to MAP11.
  • Mind Trap was moved from MAP14 to MAP19.

There is also a second version of the Hell Revealed II Beta, with a wadfile dated to February 15th 2000. Demos recorded on some levels are incompatible between the two versions.



In 2021, NightTerror became the first to complete the difficult D2all UV max of this mapset. It took him 5 hours and 25 minutes.
