Overlord: Raising Hell is the official expansion to the 2007 action-adventure video game Overlord, which was released available for download over Xbox Live for the 360 version and online for the PC version worldwide on February 15 2008 alongside additional multiplayer add-ons. A PlayStation 3 version of the original Overlord was released in June 2008 that was also named under the same title, that included all downloadable content to date on one Blu-ray Disc..
The expansion adds an extension to the game's single player with new levels, plot, enemies and weapons.
At this point, Abyss gates have appeared over the rest of the land, allowing the Overlord to try to conquer the rest of the dimension. In the Evernight Forest Abyss, Oberon Greenhaze and the remaining Elves are being tortured by having to watch a poor-quality reenactment of their demise at the hands of the Dwarves which is used to mock their God, the Mother Goddess, and as an excuse to kill on stage. However, the play constantly restarts to Act 1 since the “terror” prop for Act 3 can’t be found. Behind the set, the Overlord finds the terror being the Dwarf king Goldo’s steam roller “Rollie”. With it he finishes the production and burns Oberon to ash with Rollie’s flamethrower allowing access to another Abyss stone.
Back at Heaven’s Peak, the women have left through their Abyss gate and dominate the dimension where previous Heaven’s Peak ruler Sir William the Black is being constantly burnt with the rest of his cult. To appease the women, the Overlord uses Sir William to power humiliating pedal-operated devices for domestic tasks like washing the floor or cutting grass. The women are eventually returned to the normal world, and the Overlord kills Sir William off a second time when he tries to take the next Abyss stone for himself. At the Golden Hills Abyss, Goldo Golderson has been turned into a large Golden statue, encasing an Abyss stone. By luring the now demented Dwarf forces, they quickly pick away at Goldo until the Abyss stone is revealed for the Overlord to take.
With all four Abyss stones, the Overlord gains access to the Internal Abyss gate in the Ruborian desert. Despite heavy resistance of its undead forces, the Overlord enters its main Labyrinth. After breaking through a wall constructed with the pieces of a shattered Kahn the Warrior who still cries out for Jewel, the Overlord confronts the Lord of the Abyss for a final showdown. Apparently the lord was trying to gain access to the normal world after having been banished by the Mother Goddess.
Upon his defeat, the Abyss lord tears down his domain and the Abyss gates. While the minions, along with the lost Jester make it back to the normal world safely, the Overlord is stranded in the Abyss. However, the Overlord witnesses the Abyss' Wraiths falling to their knees, as defeating their original master has made the Overlord the new God of the Abyss. Back in the normal world, Gnarl and the minions mourn their loss, and Gnarl admits that he had a soft spot for this particular Overlord and considers the possibility that he might return, ending the scene with the same quote with which he ended the previous game: “Evil will always find a way”, at this point revealing that the Overlord’s mistress (either Rose or Velvet) is pregnant.
