Report RSS Brutal Doom v21 draws closer

Great improvements on blood and gore, new weapons, better maps, and so on.

Posted by on

It won't take long until the next version of Brutal Doom comes out.


Some of the new features that will be included:

- Revamped blood and gore, better decals, added green blood to Hell Knights and Barons of Hell.
- Option to start with a pistol instead of an assault rifle.
- Return of the Skulltag weapons (BFG10k, Railgun, Grenade Launcher, and a brand new AA-12) as an optional setting.
- First person executions for smaller enemies that doesn't requires Berserk Packs or Demon Strength Runes.
- Several new maps and improvements to the Starter Pack (Now to be called Extermination Day).

Basically all desired features are already added, and it's mostly on bugtesting phase. In a few days I will announce a release date and an official trailer.

I have recorded several dev diaries showcasing some of the new features. Check them out here:

By the videos I'd dare to say it's [almost] a complete revamp for our classic Doom. Seeing IMPs jumping to attack is something pretty awesome. The increased shoot rate in some weapons [mainly the chaingun] is a soberb feature, because now I can retire my old Dehacked file suprweap6.deh to make that a better weapon.
I know some people will hate me about this comment, but something I hated from the start in some FPS games [mainly Halo 1 and Halo 2, as I only play in pc desktop] was the slow ammo reload. FOR GOD'S SAKE... Its terrible to get attacked by several enemies and had to hide to reload my weapon. I'm really thankful for your patience to change that.
Hopefully I will wait for you next update, all features I watched in the video made me desiring to play it asap.
My very sincere congratulations for your HARD work.

Awesome!
Mark, please, bring back the knuckle crack animation from v20a (the one in 20b is faulty) and the chainsaw wielding mechanics from v20a as well, it plays more comfortable.

Please consider the option to remove dual-wielding entirely either through in-game option or mutator. They just clog up my next/prev weapon cycle.

I didn't realize you partake with the retro doom asskicking of the brutal variety. Well met fellow gore connoisseur sir Totalitarian.

I haven't visited this site for a while. Exiting news!

One question though about the video:
(Dev Diary - Brutal Doom v21 - Blood, Pistols, and Automatic Shotguns.)

Are you working on a unique pistol firing sound for upcoming release or will it share the rifle firing sound?

Thats always bothered me, a rather simple change way back when I was using the Pistol Brutal addon.

Same thing with the sshotgun single barrel shot, it should have a proper sound instead of the pump shotgun one :\

I just wish the pistols slide didn't lock back when reloading normally AKA when the guns not empty ... oh well i still look forward to playing this especially with the grenade launcher AR addon.

Under Barrel Grenade Launcher v2
Moddb.com

Since im assuming you will be able to duel wield the pistols as well I think being able to duel wield the rifles becomes a bit redundant and therefore id opt for a secondary grenade launcher function instead. This at the very least would make the rifle a more effective in its role as an actual mil spec assault rifle imho.
