John Romero announces Doom spiritual successor Sigil

Posted by: on eurogamer December 10, 2018

Legendary game maker John Romero has announced Sigil, "an unofficial spiritual successor to The Ultimate Doom's fourth episode".

The announcement comes 25 years on from 10th December 1993 - the day the original Doom launched. That's a quarter of a century ago! Just to make you feel old.

Sigil contains nine single-player and nine deathmatch levels, and will be released for free in mid-February 2019. As a megawad, you'll need the original Doom (not the remake) to play it.

Doom II mod Eviternity teaches everything to know about demon slaying

DOOM - February 11, 2019

Doom 2 is more than just Doom these days. Some modern levels for the 90s classic FPS feature thousands of enemies, fiendish traps and difficulty beyond anything Id Software dreamt of. Eviternity, released yesterday, runs the gamut. It’s a 32-level campaign split up into six episodes each with a fresh look and some new monsters. You’ll start out in gloomy gothic tunnels, plinking away at zombies with a pistol. By the end, you’ll be screaming through the vast halls of heaven itself, cutting through ungodly-huge swarms of demons with BFG in hand. It’s rather brill.
