Doom co-creator John Romero announced a spiritual successor to his hell-based shooter on the same day as the 25th anniversary for the original game's release. Titled, Sigil, it will be released as both a free mod and in a premium collector's edition.
Sigil is set after the fourth episode of Doom and is billed as a free megawad that will include nine single-player and nine deathmatch levels. Romero says Sigil is slated for a mid-February 2019 release and players will need to have their own copy of the original 1993 version of Doom.
Romero is partnering with Limited Run Games on a special collector's edition which includes custom cover art by Christopher Lovell and a new song by Buckethead written specifically for Sigil. There will be two versions of the Sigil collector's box, a premium and standard version, but both include a 16GB floppy disk themed USB that's loaded with the Sigil mod and digital extras.
You can order the standard edition for $39.99 and the collector's edition for $166, with the more expensive version featuring more goodies like a pewter statue of John Romer's head on a spike. Pre-orders are live now.
