Brutal Doom new concept art

Brutal Doom V22 will bring major performance improvements

Modder ‘Sergeant_Mark_IV’ has revealed the Brutal Doom V22 will bring major performance and optimization improvements. In order to showcase these performance improvements, the modder shared a comparison video (between V21 and V22) that you can find below.

For those unaware, Brutal Doom is one of the best mods for id Software’s classic. Brutal Doom adds realistic gore, dismemberments, headshots, executions, lightning effects, and particles. Furthermore, it makes enemies smarter and harder, makes guns louder and beefier, and adds epic new boss battles. This mod may have also inspired Bethesda to include the finisher moves in its Doom 2016 game.

As Sergeant_Mark_IV noted, Brutal Doom V22 can run more than twice its previous version. This will be crucial for both owners of older and newer CPUs, especially for maps that display A LOT of enemies on screen.

This new version of Brutal Doom will also add some new content to it. Players will be able to use new weapons, such as the Doom 3 Sentry Bot, Soul Cube, Freezethrower, Devastators, and the Karasawa.

There is currently no ETA on when Brutal Doom V22 will come out. Until that happens, you can go ahead and download its previous version.

Speaking of Doom mods, we also suggest taking a look at the following ones. Doom Voxel is a must-have mod as it turns all of its 2D sprites into 3D voxels. Aliens Eradication TC is a must-have mod for all our Aliens fans. Doom RTX is yet another must-have mod as it introduces full ray tracing/path tracing effects to the game. Then we have Brutal Doom: Black Edition, a mod that attempts to bring Doom 3’s art style to the game. And lastly, we have Schism which is a Doom/Hexen/Heretic mashup using Brutal Doom, as well as Bloom (a crossover between Blood and Doom).

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
