Doom, from development team id Software, has been labeled as a reboot to the original Doom series, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find easter eggs from the first title that released into the market decades ago. In fact, a new easter egg was revealed by id Software to further show off hidden levels of the original Doom video game which can be played in full.
Originally released back in 1993 and programmed by three members, John Carmack, John Romero, and Dave Taylor, the video game is receiving its reboot this year. Developers id Software are back once again to bring out another demon killing fueled first-person shooter with publisher Bethesda Softworks.
We’ve seen plenty of similarities and inspirations that came from the original video game title within the Doom franchise, but today we’re seeing some really incredible easter eggs hidden within each mission in the upcoming release of Doom.
IGN sat down with id Software’s Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin who revealed for the first time ever, a set of easter eggs that will be hidden throughout the Doom video game. If players are able to hunt down the proper levers to unlock a hidden door then they can step into the past with levels of the original Doom video game.
These easter egg levels will vary in size as some may only consist of one room compared to the entire original title levels that may come up in other missions within the game. While the levels will be accurate to how they were originally developed and the demon placements, gamers will still have access to their current weapons.
It’s worth noting out that even though some missions may not feature the full level within the easter egg, each discovery will unlock that full level that gamers can choose to play through within the main menu. Take a look at the video above to see where one of the easter egg levels are located within Doom.
Doom is set to release on May 13, 2016, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC.
