New Release of the Hallowed Mod for Doom 3

01 08 15 - 15:26

It's a “Beta” release. It's a simple player campaign with different gameplay then stock Doom 3. I liked the first release so I'll download and give this one a shot. When you're playing, e-mail me your screenshots and I'll put them in the rotator on the right.

You can download the latest release from the Hallowed Mod website. There's also a site but it's not updated yet.

Thanks to id tech forums for the info.
