DOOM’s Ultra Nightmare Difficulty includes Permadeath

DOOM

You know a game is hard when the developers, the people who know every little trick in the game’s book, say that they have not been able to beat the game’s hardest setting. id Software’s executive producer Marty Stratton and creative director Hugo Martin have admitted that no one on the team has been able to beat the game’s ULTRA-NIGHTMARE mode to IGN earlier this week.

The reason for this? id has added a brutal permadeath mode to the Ultra-Nightmare mode that forces you back to the start everytime you die! Stratton and Martin even joked about a competition in the office to see who can get the furthest, however so far no one has been able to get close to the game’s end.

DOOM will be available on May 13 2016.
