Posted by: [email protected] (Alice O'Connor) on rps December 10, 2018
Celebrating the 25th birthday of Doom‘s shareware episode today, Id Software co-founder and level design wizard John Romero has announced he’s making a whole new episode for the seminal first-person shooter. Sigil is its name, and launching free in February 2019 is its game. Romero calls Sigil “the spiritual successor to the fourth episode of Doom,” the one added in the Ultimate Doom expansion, saying it “picks up where the original left off.” While Sigil will be free, it is getting paid physical releases too, with the fanciest including “a pewter statue of John Romero’s head on a spike.”
