Whereas Populous only generally alluded to undefined deities, Populous II is specifically set under the backdrop of Greek mythology. The player is a demigod, one of Zeus's countless children with mortal women, and has to battle one Greek deity at a time until finally facing his father.
A data disk was also released for Populous II, called Populous II: The Challenge Games. This was set in Japanese mythology and had each level as its individual challenge, slightly in the style of a puzzle game.
