Many longtime fans of the original Doom know about Sergeant_Mark_IV’s mod, Brutal Doom. Quite possibly the most definitive gameplay enhancement mod around, Brutal Doom is still going strong since its debut in 2012, and improving with each iteration. Seriously, if you haven’t played with this mod, you’re missing out. I mean, it’s friggin’ free to use!
Shilling aside, Sergeant_Mark_IV yesterday gave an update on the public test version of Brutal Doom v21. It’s not the completed version (which will probably be released after Christmas), but there’s already tons of new and enhanced features for guns, gore, enemies and even the maps. Ever wanted to rip out a Cacodemon’s eye and throw it at enemies? How about giving your rocket launcher a 3x zoom with a night scope? What about the ability to grab a zombie soldier and fling him across the room? You can with this update.
In addition, Brutal Doom is also up for Moddb’s Mod of the Year awards. If you’re a fan of the mod, consider voting. Rip and tear to your heart’s content!
