To celebrate today’s launch of DOOM, Bethesda has partnered with champion Australian chainsaw carver, Rob Bast, to bring the iconic Revenant to life in an 8ft sculpture – to be exhibited from today at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), the world’s most visited moving image or film cultural centre located in Federation Square, Melbourne.
The chainsaw is a key part of the DOOM Marine’s arsenal and using his own saws, Rob has painstakingly recreated one of DOOM’s most fearsome foes in the form of an incredibly detailed sculpture made entirely from recycled sustainable cypress wood.
The amazing journey of this piece, which took almost 150 hours to create, can be viewed in the following video:
DOOM has been developed at id Software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and invented multiplayer Deathmatch. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes.
