Just wanted to get this page up to draw attention to this fascinating prototype. I'll have to finish this sometime later.

The E3 prototype of Hexen II has quite a few interesting differences, such as Quake weapons using the Hexen II palette, unused textures and models, Windows sound effects, and a scrapped level not seen in the final game!

Map Differences

Surprisingly, these appear to work pretty well in the final game and even a modern source port such as Hammer of Thyrion.
