Sigil II is done. Romero has laid the finishing touches on the new Doom mod (which are actually called WADs, or "Where's All the Data?"), and pre-orders are now open for the new Doom "mega WAD" created by the maven of mayhem himself. Prices start at €6.66 for the digital edition, but just like last time with the original Sigil, Romero is making big box versions of the WAD. These versions are super popular and two of the three big box SKUs have sold out in less than 2 hours.

"On December 10 it's Doom's 30th anniversary, and on Doom's 30th, I wanted to release another episode. It's the sixth episode, and it's called Sigil II," Romero said. "That is the day that we'll start shipping Sigil orders."

Sigil II comes with 9 hellish levels and 2 deathmatch maps.

Sigil II is more of a passion project for Romero. The FPS godfather is currently working on a brand new big-budget first-person shooter built with Unreal Engine 5, complete with online multiplayer. The game is set in a fresh universe so don't expect Doomslayer or BJ Blazkowicz to show up.
