Alongside the first official smattering of bloody and hellish screenshots, Bethesda and id Software also revealed earlier today the first-ever look at the game's gameplay, as well as provided a myriad of details about the upcoming sequel. At the time, there was nothing but a cinematic teaser, but we were promised gameplay footage at QuakeCon 2018. The developer showed off some all-new gameplay today during their QuakeCon Keynote.
You can catch the DOOM coverage from the show from 29 minutes in at the embedded video above. The Slayer's got several new skills and weapons up his sleeves, including a new dash mechanic, a grappling hook mod for scaling walls and slicing up baddies and an explosive spear-launcher called the Ballista.
Marty Stratton, the game's director, said that the lead character has been upgraded to be "the strongest, most powerful hero we've ever created".
This story won't be entirely full of blood and carnage, and will also take us to new places such as a attractive city on what looks like another world. Beyond that, the last major new addition to the Doom formula is body carnage. Developed by id Software, DOOM Eternal brings the ultimate combination of speed and power with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat.
Here's what taking Tesla private means for the company and Elon Musk
Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, a major backer of the Vision Fund, has built a $2 billion stake in Tesla already. Public companies have four days to report certain material events that shareholders should know about to the U.S.
The studio also pledged the campaign won't unfold only on Earth, showing off a bit of fight footage from Martian moon Phobos to round out the demo. This includes the Pain Elemental, Archvile and Arachnotron from previous Doom titles, while new enemies include the Doom Hunter and corrupted Marauders. What we do know is that one, it'll be out for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch; and two, there will most definitely blood.
Doom Eternal already looks like a bigger and better version of 2016's Doom, but it seems like we won't have to wait too long for even more Doom this time.
KitGuru Says: DOOM Eternal is looking excellent.
