SnapMap is a free and easy to use map creator, allowing users to create the most challenging maps or add twists to existing multiplayer modes. id also promises to update Doom’s multiplayer with new game modes and SnapMap with additional features such as map modules, editing tool and AI enhancements. These updates will be free of charge.
