The first new level for the game is being released by one of its developers, John Romero, after 21 years. Perhaps the best part is that this new level is completely free, reported BBC.

The new level will be available for players via the file-sharing website Dropbox.

Doom, released in 1993, had a staggering 10 million players in just two years after its release. The report also said that since the source code (the program used to power the game) was written in a human-readable computer language, Romero estimated that there are around 30 alternative versions of the game.

Romero also said that the new level was a warm-up for an entire new project. "Whenever I start a new game, I usually warm up, so to speak, by creating levels in something I’m familiar with," Wired quoted him as saying.

Doom was one of the games that was a very important milestone for computer gamimg, especially with respect to 3D graphics and gaming.
