It's going to be a ZDoom map pack that uses many zdoom features, and allows the player to freely make use of jumping, crouching and even rocket jumping without worrying about breaking the game flow.
The map is specially aimed at Zandronum's online cooperative play. All maps will have 8 player start locations so a lot of people can join without causing telefrags at the start, and all maps will have almost twice as much monsters in multiplayer. All maps will also feature starting locations for DM games, so the maps can provide some little fun for deathmatch.
PLOT AND MAP PROGRESS:
Episode 1 - Operation Blowtorch
The government has secretly working with Teleport technology (inb4 how original) in the Area 51. But something went wrong and an intelligent and heavily armed alien force has emerged from the gate and have overtaken the whole Area 51. The military could not nuke the place out because the gate was constructed in an anti-nuclear shelter one mile under the ground. A nuclear strike could destroy the base and kill the aliens on it and borrow everything underground, but the portal would still be open and the aliens would soon or later find a way out. Then, the military sends the most combat hardened marines that ever existed (the Players) to get down, and close the portal manually. After it they could carpet bomb the base and everything in radius of 150 miles to make sure that no alien have escaped.

Without finding a way to close the magic gate, the brave marines decide to cross the gate and try to shut it down from the other side. They get into the alien dimension.

The marines will have to struggle to cross this hostile land and find the main source of the portals.

Episode 4 - The Dimension of the Damned
Crossing another portal, the marines reaches a very dark place. The sky is pitch black, and there's a huge fire consuming everything in the horizon and this is the only light source around. The terrain seems to be an incomensurable mountain range with lava flowing from the peaks. The only buildings present are creepy structures of marble and iron built near the cliffs and are very distant from each other. The Marines have reached this frightening place of no return, and they have no other option than going forward and face the nightmares that inhabit this desolate land.
