Read that headline again carefully. Total Chaos is an open world survivor horror Doom 2 mod. Doom 2 came out in 1993. There is a new mod for it coming out in 2014.

Let's take a look at that trailer.

The mod is an open world survival horror where players are dropped on an island with a video camera to explore the deadly surroundings. The island was once run by a community of coal miners which one day suddenly disappeared, leaving behind the abandoned concrete jungle to waste away. Total Chaos is a sandbox mod, so the player has freedom of choice of either finding the lost community, surviving on their own against the islands deadly forces, or explore the island to uncover its most hidden secrets.

There are no guns in Total Chaos, instead the players must use their wit and the hazards they find in the environment to defend themselves.
Light fires to destroy those who hunt you down, set traps to take down unsuspected enemies. Blunt weapons can be found on the island, but close combat is not recommended.

The mod with the assistance of the source ports introduces many new graphical features, such as 16x motion blur, high resolution textures, 3D models and bloom effects.

The team notes that it's not a straight up mod of Doom 2 but rather a modified version of the Doom 2 engine that utilizes OpenGL, mouse look, and a few other features. However, the team also notes that it's still Doom 2 at heart and you can even use console commands to spawn in enemies as if you were playing some crazy bizarre Doom 2.
