DOOM 2016 Classic Maps
Tip: Each of the 13 missions in DOOM 2016 has a secret — a hidden switch / lever you must pull to open a nearby secret room door that you must enter — that then unlocks a classic DOOM map (confirmed by the on-screen “Extras Unlocked” message). As such, DOOM 2016 features 13 playable Classic Maps from Doom and Doom II. If you find & unlock one, it can be played in full by visiting the CLASSIC MAPS campaign missions menu selectable from the main menu.
Of course, by entering the newly opened secret door you get to see classic DOOM graphics (although with new enemies in the place of the old ones) and you get to play part of the map (sometimes only one room) from the original DOOMs; Whereas the unlocked Classic Map actually has the full map playable from the CLASSIC MAPS menu.
Note: These Classic Maps play exactly like the original DOOM 1 and 2 levels, pixelated graphics and all, but the Hell demons are of this generation.

The Classic Maps are listed in this step-by-step video, in the order that they appear chronologically from A) finding the switch/lever to B) going into the newly opened Classic DOOM Map area.
