What do you get when you splice together the grandfather of first-person shooters and one of the most influential survival horror titles of all time: pure unadulterated hellishness, it would seem. Mind you, this frighteningly brilliant concoction will soon become a guilty pleasure we can all savour once now-revered modder DooMero finishes v4.0 of his Resident Evil 4-Doom hybrid project.
We don't imagine it'll fit neatly into neither the Resident Evil nor Doom's familiar storyline and remain entirely canonical, but that doesn't mean we aren't waiting with bated breath to find out just how it is the cast of Resident Evil 4's Mercenaries mode have managed to wind up on Mars, lost in a sea of id Software's most nightmarish creations.

Interested in giving this mind-bending mod for a spin? Go ahead and grab it for free right here, but do make sure to dig up that old copy of Doom you have sitting atop your shelf, and also to install either Skulltag and Zandronum.
