Gamers Can Win a 3Dfx Monster Board and HEXEN II T-Shirts

Los Angeles, CA, May 28, 1997 -- Get ready for a gristlier and more graphic Hexen II! Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) has teamed up with 3Dfx Interactive to launch a Hexen II/3Dfx contest on the Activision Web site. Beginning now, and running through August 29, 1997, Hexen fans can visit the site, participate in a trivia contest and enter to win a Diamond Monster 3D board worth over $200.

"Hexen II marks the first of many titles from Activision that will support the 3Dfx card," said Bobby Kotick, CEO and Chairman of Activision, Inc. "3Dfx makes Hexen II look spectacular and heightens the immersion factor even more for gamers, resulting in an incredible display of pyrotechnics and carnage." Hexen II is the eagerly awaited sequel to Hexen: Beyond Heretic. Developed by Raven Software and id Software the game transports players to four worlds - a medieval town and castle, a Roman villa, Egyptian Pyramids and Meso-American ruins - and pits them against droves of foul fiends including scorpions and mummies as well as some nefarious Boss monsters. Players fight as one of four character classes with weapons and powers specific to each class.

In order to enter the contest, Web surfers need to fill out an entry form at Activision's Web site and correctly answer a few questions about Hexen II and/or 3Dfx. The questions will vary from day to day and gamers can play the contest as many times as they wish, but they will only be entered once for the drawing. Once a week, six names will be randomly drawn and posted on a winner's page. The winner's page will also feature new screenshots of Hexen II and details about the gameplay, weapons, monsters and artifacts. Each week, one of the six winners will win Diamonds' Monster 3D board featuring 3Dfx graphics worth over $200, while the other five gamers will win Hexen II t-shirts.
