The official E3 story
for DOOM Eternal
is now available on
. This includes the revelation that the sequel to the 2016 DOOM
reboot will launch on November 22nd. Don't let the story trailer moniker fool
you, this includes gameplay footage, making for a pretty action-packed experience.
The accompanying post does shed more light on the game's plot:
forces of Hell have claimed Earth, overwhelming the planet with demons.
It’s time for you to once again fill the skull-crushing boots of the DOOM Slayer
and save humanity from utter destruction.
Of course, there’s only one way to stop the chaos: rip and tear through every
demon in your path, until it is done.
In DOOM Eternal, fight through the relentless demon onslaught with unmatched
speed, devastating weaponry and evolved aggression-first combat as the legendary
DOOM Slayer. See the newest trailer for a taste of the adrenaline-fueled combat,
engaging gameplay and expanding universe that awaits in DOOM Eternal’s
The Slayer is deadlier this time around, but so are the enemies he faces. To
annihilate the demon onslaught, players need to master a deadly combination of
raw firepower, fast movement, aggressive resource management and old-fashioned
instinct in DOOM Eternal’s demanding encounters.
The Slayer must rely on every aspect of his upgraded arsenal and abilities to
combat the escalating strength of Hell’s fully unleashed minions. Every resource
matters and slaying at full strength means managing them aggressively. If you
need something, charge into combat and take it from the demons.
Use the new Flame Belch ability on the Slayer’s shoulder-mounted Equipment
Launcher to set demons ablaze and then shoot the immolated foes for armor. To
restore health, use overwhelming firepower to stagger a demon and follow up with
the ultimate rip-and-tear finisher, the Glory Kill. Ammo is scarce, so
eviscerating enemies with the Chainsaw is essential for restocking the Slayer’s
As the waves of demons you fight get tougher, you’ll need to utilize the right
weapons in your arsenal at the right times to maximize your damage. With DOOM
Eternal’s demon destruction system, tearing apart demons piece by piece is not
only fun, it’s useful, as targeting and destroying a heavy demon’s primary guns
can help make short, bloody work of even the toughest foes.
From the gap-closing Double Dash to the Meathook mod for the Super Shotgun,
which allows you to hook into and get up-close-and-personal with a demon, DOOM
Eternal puts you in control of the ultimate demon killing machine. But
resourceful fighting is only one of the many additions to the Slayer’s kit. On
top of powerful new weapons like the energy-bladed Crucible and devastating
Ballista, new options like scaling sheer walls, vaulting from monkey bars,
punching through walls, breaking chains and much more allows you to master the
environment as much as the combat.
Demons have taken over Earth, but you will show them what hell is really like
this year when DOOM Eternal launches November 22.
