Where does The Ultimate Doom's Episode 4 Takes Place

Recommended Posts

Uhm... it's a hellish outpost / giant fortress before the city in fire you'll find at the end of episode 3 / 4 where you found the poor daisy's head on a spike and then in your hands, ready for revenge and Doom 2 lol

Hell's Basement, I am given to understand.

 

Take a left at Perdition's Gate, then the second exit from Pugatorio, then the ramp down from The Seventh Circle, et voila! You're in Hell Beneath.

The gateway between Hell and Earth, the place where all sinners are burned so their sins will be repented, except Doomguy.

I think nobody cared and it doesn't take place anywhere, it's just a cool set of really hard (for the time) add-on levels for people who hadn't had enough Doom yet.

I always thought it was on Earth: just a hellified town, or something since at the end of Episode 3, you exit the "door to find the green fields of Earth".

It's earth, utterly conquered and occupied while you were dilly-dallying on Mars.

i think it must be hell. The doomguy may return to hell because of his daisy. Also, there are no UAC logo in any these levels execpt e4m9(if was not mistaken).

It takes place on Earth, the end text of Episode 3 explicitly states that. It is the entry point of the invasion, so the first part of Earth that the Demons conquered which can be explained by their very strong presence there. It also served as a rally point, where another Spider Mastermind coordinated the initial invasion efforts on Earth. But you arrived a while after it has given the bulk of the demon army the command to fully initiate the rest of the invasion. Thus began the Hell on Earth.

Firstly, we can think that doomguy died at the end of episode 1. If so, episodie 4 could be the doomguy's resurrection to go back to Earth: look at the ambiguity of the maps, the bible phrases... Episode 4 could be a kind of "purgatory" between hell and life.

Episode 3's end text certainly doesn't say "episode 4 takes place on Earth." Episode 4 wasn't thought up until after Doom and Doom II were released. The original game's ending says that the protagonist will return to Earth, and shows Earth suffering an apparent demonic invasion. The story section in Doom II's manual picks up that thread with Doomguy arriving back on Earth (though it takes the perspective he got back via drop pod) and learning about the demonic invasion, eventually seguing into map 01. There's no unaccounted time in between games. Furthermore, Doom II's text screens tell us that the entryway for the invasion was map 20.

 

Like Woolie Wool said, they're just a set of levels. There's no intended story, aside from E4M7, which comes from Dr. Sleep's Inferno series and is actually supposed to be about Dante looking for Beatrice in Hell. Which is not to say that a player couldn't create a story in his head if it makes them more enjoyable.
