If you thought 2016's Doom was the perfect marriage of classic Doom with modern AAA gaming, think again! Because someone else has just perfected this unholy union, thanks to... a new mod that puts loot boxes into the 1993 version of Doom.
And it basically works the way you'd see it in a modern big-budget game. The Doom Loot Box Mod's official description reads: "Weapons and powerups are removed from the map, and will sometimes be replaced with crates. All enemies have a small chance of dropping a key. Use a key to open a crate and get a random weapon or powerup."
YouTuber StronkiTube took the mod for a test play, and found that it took him about 600 kills of grinding to find 10 keys. True to form, you CAN also purchase keys through a new marketplace added by the mod -- but trying to do so gives you a notice that the game's servers are offline forever.
Wow. It's so accurate it almost hurts.
