Nobody Has Beaten Doom’s Hardest Difficulty Level

I don’t see what the appeal is about permadeath, but those who do are going to love Doom’s "Ultra Nightmare" mode.

Speaking with Doom Executive Producer Marty Stratton and Creative Director Hugo Martin, IGN has learned that no one at developer id Software has yet managed to complete Doom’s hardest difficulty mode. The new Ultra-Nightmare setting is Doom’s punishing Nightmare mode with a permadeath twist. Screw up once, and you’re dead and back at the beginning of the game, leaving only your helmet as a marker of your progress.
