Yesterday QuakeCon 2018 kicked off with Bethesda and id Software showing off a world premiere gameplay trailer for DOOM Eternal. Mostly, though, what was shown looked consistent with the 2016 game, just amped up. Destroy every demon in your path with an upgraded array of guns and mods, including the Super Shotgun's new Meat Hook attachment to pull yourself point blank with the faces of hell. In 2016, id Software re-defined the word "reboot" withDoom, putting us back in the boots of one of gaming's most iconic heroes: The Doom Slayer.
The Gameplay starts with the view of Doom Slayer looking at his helmet and wearing it, seeing his new feature of the sword and getting ready for the mission.More news: Bartomeu Leaves Barca Door Open to Pogba Signing
The official press release for DOOM Eternal mentions the story and gameplay changes that can be expected from this sequel. You can further use the momentum created from grappling in to soar past the target and get some shots in on their backside.
Most notably, players from other games can invade another player's game as a demon in "invasions", thus shaking up the gameplay formula quite a bit.More news: Family of airline worker who crashed stolen plane 'shocked'
We're Not on Mars Anymore - Rip and tear across epic, never-before-seen worlds.
Doom tethered the demonic alien hordes to the Martian hellscape and kept them well away from our home planet, but that all changes with Doom Eternal. We also got a look a Phobos, which isn't quite as disgusting, as it hasn't been completely overtaken by demons yet. In addition to new weapons, the Doomslayer also has new traversal mechanics like dashing and wall climbing.More news: Thomas Markle reportedly fears he won’t see royal daughter Meghan again
It's an entirely optional feature, but players that opt in may have to deal with actual human threats, and sometimes even more than one as online players are allowed to form their own Slayer-hunting squad of demons. Like in other games, invasions will optional, so you can choose to turn them off. Eternal has no release date or window set at the moment.
