Brutal Doom Adding Night Vision Rocket Launcher And New Death Animations (VIDEO)
If you’re a fan of video game mods and the overall gruesome destruction of demons, there’s a good chance that you’ve crossed paths with Brutal Doom. The mod has been tearing things up since 2010, and with its 21st update soon to go live, an abundance of new features are being added to keep Doomslayers coming back for more.
Developed by Sergeant Mark IV, the Brutal Doom mod gives fans of the original Doom the pleasure of kicking monster ass with more vigor and in bloodier fashion. The incoming update makes this even more possible by adding alt-fire modes to weapons. Take the rocket launcher for a spin with a 3X night vision scope added to it for maximum carnage, or pummel an enemy in the face with your pistol – the world is yours! A plethora of the bigger baddies are being equipped with shootable dead bodies, so if you didn’t get all of your aggression out the first time around, just keep firing at their lifeless corpses. Check out all of this and more in the video below:
The upcoming Brutal Doom update, which will begin open beta testing next week, features so much more than alternative firing modes for weapons and the ability to shoot corpses. New death animations will also be arriving, giving a little extra flare when you mow down all of those Mancubuses and Arch-viles. The popular door feature will also be making its return. With it being reactivated, all dead bodies can now be squashed with a closing door.
The multiplayer functionality will also be receiving a bit of an overhaul. Tweaking is happening in the weapon balance department, while new execution animations being added to the mod will allow players to obliterate their opponents by grabbing them and ripping them in half. Brutal enough for you?
A new offline deathmatch mode is also coming with the update, allowing players to take on a large sum of bots in 10 new levels, including updated classic Doom arenas. No word has been announced as to when the new version will be going live, but as it was stated above, open beta testing begins next week.
