For me as a big fan of the old Doom game, the question looms: are the tiles compatible? In this case, I view the new game as an expansion Does anyone know anything?

The tiles will be the same format as Imperial Assault and Descent 2nd Edition. I'm not sure if they'll fit very well with the old DOOM style tiles, which I believe had some different engineering on the rooms, though they are technically the same scale of 1 inch squares.

Yeah, I've tried combining the Doom tiles with Descent 2e tiles before, but the old puzzle-fit connectors in Doom and I believe Descent 1e were a different style, so they don't fit with the newer games' tiles. Descent 2e and Imperial Assault tiles fit together perfectly, though, so great to hear these are compatible too!

Ah damn. That's bad news. So no new Doom boardgame for me.

Thanks! I've been trying to find out if Imperial Assault and Descent 2e tiles can be connected.
