Just when you think you've seen it all in Minecraft, along comes a whole new adventure like this - one that is so detailed, so complete, and so impressive that it makes you go wow. In this case, the adventure draws upon the classic FPS pioneer, DOOM, mixing two of gaming’s best-known franchises in one.
Redditor Sibogy released his news to the Minecraft subreddit, announcing his free-to-download adventure - including maps, textures, weapons, game logic, and more - was being released after 1200 hours of dedicated work, spanning two years.
The game is inspired by DOOM 2016, with some aspects of DOOM Eternal drawn in and provides a remarkable DOOM-like experience with the frenetic pace and thrills and frights you expect from DOOM, but within Minecraft’s block-like experience.
Installation is simple; follow this link to read about the adventure and to find the download link. You can also make an optional donation to Sibogy in thanks for his hard work. There’s no requirement to donate in order to download or enjoy the adventure, but do keep it in mind once you’ve given it a play.
Download the zip file, then create a new Minecraft 1.16.3 instance. To be clear, this is for the Java edition of Minecraft, and not the Bedrock edition as played on mobile devices. If you don’t already own the original, Java-based Minecraft you can buy it and join in the fun, and you’ll also find it is included in Microsoft’s GamePass subscription.
No other mods or add-ons are needed; everything you need is in the one download. Once you have created the instance find its .minecraft/saves folder and unzip the download into there. Launch Minecraft, click Play, and load the new saved world. You’ll be prompted to change some video and audio settings, such as field of view, brightness, particles, and others, but it’s all worth it to get the best effect.
Next, select your difficulty level - and off you go. You'll be amazed at how immersive it is, and how well Sibogy has captured the DOOM-feel within Minecraft, replete with collectibles that play the DOOM theme, weaponry, working lifts, enemies, keycards, and more.
