DOOM Eternal Announced

Bethesda's "BE3" pre-E3 show tonight included announcement DOOM Eternal, an upcoming sequel to DOOM (2016) in the works at id Software. They don't yet offer a release date, and it doesn't sound like we'll see that much of it during the show, as the official E3 teaser trailer is all cinematics, and it promises a livestream gameplay reveal on August 10th from QuakeCon. Here's more on the game from the description of the clip:
Announcing DOOM Eternal, the direct sequel to the award-winning and best-selling DOOM (2016). Developed by id Software, DOOM Eternal brings the ultimate combination of speed and power with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat.

As the DOOM Slayer, return to take your vengeance against the forces of Hell. Set to an all-new pulse pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, fight across dimensions as you slay new and classic demons with powerful new weapons and abilities.

Witness the worldwide unveiling of DOOM Eternal gameplay at QuakeCon 2018 in Dallas, Texas on August 10th! The reveal will be live for attendees and livestreamed for everyone.

I dunno. the DOOM remake was fun, but the outsourced multiplayer was complete garbage. Which was a damn shame. I know that most of you old farts around here don't give a damn about multi but considering that DOOM was basically the game that invented first person deathmatch, I was kind of dissapointed with that.

If they can show off some good old fashioned in-house deathmatch, with *gasp* dedicated servers this is gonna be a day one buy, otherwise If Im still alive and gaming at the time, Im gonna be getting this at a discount.

Given that the id/Beth bet on DM is Quake Champions, and it's not doing well, I doubt this will invest much in competing. The market just isn't there anymore, and all decent Doom DM would do is cannibalize from Quake Champions while the majority of multiplayer fans go to large battlefields or battle royales.

Well, that didn't show us much. I guess it will be the same as Doom 2016.

Which is perfectly fine, and in fact, exactly what they should do. Doom 2016 was amazing, and more-or-less universally loved (campaign anyway, screw that awful multiplayer). It's not something they should mess with too much.

They only issue I had in the previous game was that too much of your character progression was tied to finding secrets and hidden powerups. I'm definitely not saying they should get rid of the secrets, but finding them shouldn't be necessary for character advancement. In any case, I'd file this as a minor negative.

I just wished there had been an option to replay the whole game with those unlocks unlocked, and to continue finding/unlocking what you missed. You could replay levels individually, but not save in the middle. Given that some levels were like 2.5 hours, that meant powering through the entire level or just playing the first part of it repeatedly.

Couldn't they just have made a DLC / expansion packs for the last one.?

Seems a bit soon to have cranked out a full fledged sequel ..?

It'll be coming out like 3 years after the original. Seems fine to me.

I find it entertaining that they claim you'll be a more powerful demon slayer, given that you were basically a god that they ran from in fear.

Which is part of what made Doom 2016 so much damn fun.

fuck yeah, gimme that sweet sweet double barrel shotgun to blast point blank for soothing cloud of gibs, seriosly nice homage to doom1->2 times. I've got a good feeling about this, not going to preorder shit but given it's not broken and more of the same 20016 Doom I'm getting this on launch. Would be sweet to allow coop campaign but no biggie if it isn't.

Doom 5?

Doom 1, Doom 2, radial geometry maps with pixels...

Doom 3, aka Closet/No Flashlight Doom...

Doom (4) aka 2016 DOOM...

Shit yeah we're up to 5 already. Looks good though, I'll definitely get it after a bit of a price drop.
