A modern hobby of some programmers is Make Doom work on all possible systems: From an oscilloscope to Christmas trees and voting machines to … Doom Eternal. You read that right: Doom 2 from 1994 can be played entirely in the newest branch of Bethesda and id Software.

This is how you play Doom 2 in Doom Eternal

The classic shooter is hidden as an Easter egg in your home base. You can explore the Doom Fortress between missions. If you enter the name »FLYNNTAGGART« on the computer, Doom 2: Hell on Earth starts.

In the meantime, the new Doom Eternal itself was able to establish itself in the Steam Charts, occupying four out of ten places in the week from March 17 to 23, 2020
