Epic Games store is giving away perhaps the most popular game in the PC gaming history – DOOM. It was a game that was instant hit not only when it was released in 1993, but it is still being played by hardcore fans in its various forms on a number of different platforms. Later in 1997, DOOM 64 was released for the Nintendo 64 and again it became a very popular game all over the world.
On its 25th anniversary in 2020, a special enhanced version of the game was released that contained better graphics and support for the newer hardware. This is the version of DOOM 64 that is available as a giveaway on Epic Games store. Despite the 64 in the title, the game can be played on a Windows PC having decent hardware a modern graphics card and at last 8 GB of RAM.
The background story of DOOM 64 begins after the DOOM: Hell on Earth installment in the DOOM Franchise. In that installment, you fought tooth and nail to prevent the coming of hell on the Earth and won. But it has begun all over again. So many years later, a weak signal has been detected coming from the abandoned UAC research facilities on Mars. It has been found out that a single entity remained behind on Mars and it can raise the demons once again. You have to go back there and stop the demon invasion of Earth by putting a stop to the Mother of all demons.
The plot is very interesting, the gameplay is non-stop FPS fights and it comes with improved graphics and sound. It is a delight for both the old timers and the new generations who have never tasted the DOOM series of games.
