Doom (2016) missions

The Foundry is a level in Doom (2016). It is an integrated steel mill and as such is filled with hazardous molten liquid metal. The Praetor suit does not offer sufficient protection from the heat if the player comes in contact with the metal, and so it must be avoided. The third mission, Meltdown, takes place here after VEGA alerts the Doom marine and Dr. Samuel Hayden that the demons have shut down the cooling turbines and could cause a catastrophic explosion to occur.

"With the satellite back online, the full scale and origin of the attack is revealed. Olivia Pierce, the Lazarus Project's lead scientist turned cult leader, attacked a Hell wave and released hundreds of demons from their holding cells in the Lazarus Laboratories. The devastation that followed has left the facility on the brink of complete destruction - the Foundry reactors are in critical meltdown. Samuel Hayden, a survivor and Head of the Mars facility has offered you his help if you need it. You don't. You just need ammo and a way to stop the meltdown before it tears the base apart."

At QuakeCon 2016, producer Marty Stratton displayed a beta version of the level on a much earlier build of what was still considered id Tech 5, and mentioned that this level began as part of the original Doom 4 concept which was abandoned and rebooted. While undergoing massive revisions during the re-development of the game and being greatly expanded into its final, vastly non-linear layout in the process, this makes it one of the largest known surviving relics from the previous concept.[1]
