Watch Doom Eternal Xp v1.7 from TekAdvisor on www.twitch.tv Doom Exp adds quite a few new things to Doom, including a progression system, melee (including Doom Eternal's Hellblade), mobility boost and a bit of a randomizer. I've got the feeling that it'd go really well with a map pack more aggress...
