About This File

A 7 level "episode" for Doom 2 utilizing new textures and music. For fans of Deus Vult and Alien Vendetta. There are only two difficulty settings: Normal (easy and medium) and hard.The most noticable areas of difficulty change is in key areas, such as replacing an archville with a baron of hell (for example). Normal difficulty is a toned down version while Ultra Violence is what makes VV fun. My advice is to play it on UV, and if it proves too much, play it on normal. However, Map06 in particular is quite hard on UV.

Par completion time is around 80-120 minutes depending on the player; however it will take most players longer than 120 minutes the first time around. Co-Op play is not only an option, it's preferred! Load it up, get some friends, and have some fun. ZDoom is recommended. Some enviroments in the later maps might be too big for older computers slower than 1.0 ghz.

A tip for people who are going to complain about map06: In order to get the gate to lower, you must find a series of teleporters which will take you to various locations in the hills that will lead to the switch. The first teleport is located behind the marble face in the lava. This is completely beatable. And as always, save often.

As for map07, I decided to include it in this release simply because I wasn't about to release a dead simple remake in a 5 meg texture pack :)

Nice, but Alien Vendetta and Deus Vult are much much better. 4/5

This really is an awesome level set. Kicks the shit out of all the sterile design orientated wads that have been getting released in the last few years. And while this looks great, it plays even better! 5/5

I liked Deus Vult better but still, it's a great map IMO.

This has nothing to do with DV or AV. The first 5 maps are average medium monstercount maps and are quite boring. Note for map05: don't put monsters in hard to reach places. Map06 is the only one worth mentioning. Even then it's only the 3rd room that counts as the first one is more annoying than hard and the 2nd and 4th are too easy. With my first run totalling at about 1h 25m i'd rather spend a bit more time (1h 40m to be exact) and complete Deus Vult again, and again, and again... 3/5 - Belial

      One of the best megawads I've ever played. I especially like map05, though the

      I've just finished playing all the maps, and seeing this TNT maps remade is a great feeling. Generally they are all a step above their original counter part, but also having played TNT Revilution I can't help but compare then, and putting the maps that pull the same inspiration side by side there is no contest, Renascence is left way behind, not to say there are bad, but Transduction and Fortress of Bullets are just in another League.
      Now, Taking advantage that I'm talking about Revilution it's map 18 (Hell's Signs) was made by Eternal and probrably is a little glimpse of what episode 2 of Renascence could've been. Finally, I find it very tragic that this isn't getting a sequel, but since Eternal still an active mapper so the hope isn't complete lost.
