The day has finally arrived, today at Quakecon, the folks at id Software showed off the first gameplay footage from DOOM Eternal. After its predecessor received a port for the system, it's great to see the continued support for Nintendo's latest console. The entirety of the gameplay revolves around you shooting, slicing and dicing as many demons as you can in increasingly brutal ways.
Thought it was neat to see concept art and weapons from the game, it wasn't long before Bethesda jumped into gameplay. Now other players can join your game as demons and try to kill you inside of your (formerly) single-player campaign.
The first gameplay footage of Doom Eternal reveals that it is very much a follow-up to 2016's Doom.
As for the demons, classic characters like the Arch Vile, Arachnotron and Pain Elemental have returned, having been left out of DOOM 2016.
The demo offers a few glances at returning weapons, like the iconic double barrel shotgun, as well as new additions to the arsenal, like an automatic chain shotgun and a new type of energy weapon.
As expected, DOOM Eternal runs at 60 fps and is looking better than ever, with graphical fidelity that exceeds anything the franchise has done before.
NASA Announces First Crew for Commercial Space Travel
While there's talk of pushing NASA's last Soyuz return to January 2020, the space agency won't extend the Soyuz agreement forever. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk , she said, founded the company in 2002 to build the safest and most reliable spacecraft possible.
The biggest reason for this seems to be the shift away from traditional multiplayer and onto the invasion mechanic that Doom Eternal has.
In a game design twist that riffs on the likes of Demon's Souls, the developers said you can take control of a demon and invade other player's games.
Intense is an understatement when it comes to the gameplay reveal of the next Doom.
At this point, there is still no official release window for DOOM Eternal.
DOOM Eternal- When is it coming out? For now, here are some pieces of concept art to look at, the screens released so far are all 4K versions of the PC build, so we won't show them here, not until we get some Switch screens instead.
