New Doom 2 Level From Co-Creator John Romero Released To Raise Funds for Ukraine

Editor’s note: The war in Ukraine is a constant, painful, and emotional topic. IGN encourages members of the community to behave respectfully when discussing this topic and does not condone the harassment of any kind.

Id Software co-founder John Romero released a new Doom II level almost 30 years after the game’s launch to raise funds for Ukraine.

Romero is selling the new level for €5 ($5.53), with all proceeds going to the Red Cross and the UN Central Emergency Response Fund, which are working to support the people of Ukraine, he said in a tweet (below).

Level of “One Humanity” can be purchased from the Romero online store, and the game requires an original copy of Doom II and a modern source port.

To support the people of Ukraine and the humanitarian efforts of the Red Cross and the UN Central Emergency Response Fund, I am releasing a new level of DOOM II for a donation of 5 euros. 100% of proceeds go to these agencies. Thanks. pic.twitter.com/p0VbjdIofP

Many in the gaming industry supported Ukraine after Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale invasion of the country. Kyiv-based developer GSC Game World recently shared a heartbreaking video of how they were affected by the war, and CD Projekt suspended game sales in Russia and Belarus.

11 Bit Studios, GOG, Raw Fury, Bungie, CD Projekt Red, Beetlewing, Wargaming, and other developers, publishers, and game leaders donated money to charities helping Ukrainian citizens and refugees.

Ukraine has also officially called on Xbox, PlayStation, and “all game development companies” to temporarily stop supporting Russia and Belarus in an open letter written by Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Fedorov.
