It has been 25 years since Doom was first released. For those who actually grew up playing the game, you might have fond memories of it, and for those who are unfamiliar, Doom was one of the original FPS titles that helped popularize the FPS genre, leading to many FPS games having been created since.

Now to celebrate the game’s 25th anniversary, its co-creator John Romero has decided to release a spiritual successor to Doom called Sigil. This will be essentially a mod of the original Doom where it will come with nine single-player levels, and nine multiplayer levels. Sigil will be a free download but it will require gamers to own a copy of the original Doom.

However if you’re a super huge fan of Doom and Romero’s work and contributions to the game, there will also be physical copies of Sigil that can be bought. The first version will cost $40 and will come with an oversized box and a 16GB USB drive shaped like a floppy disk. The other version will retail for $166 which includes an art print, a collectible coin, a pewter statue of an in-game Easter egg, and also a soundtrack by Buckethead who was at one point in time a guitarist for Guns N’ Roses. Gamers who are interested can head on over to Sigil’s website for the details.
