DOOM Eternal

Bethesda Softworks and id Software certainly made us wait for its world premiere of DOOM: Eternal’s gameplay. Cliche as it sounds, it was worth every minute. Check out the footage for yourself below.

The footage starts off with the Doom Slayer’s new weapons on display, including a new shotgun with a grappling hook at the end, and the Ballista, which fires explosive bolts. The Slayer also has the ability to dash, both on the ground and in mid-air, allowing for quick movement and side-stepping. Another new ability allows the Slayer to supercharge melee attacks after Glory Kills, sending groups of demons flying with a single punch.

Levels have also been expanded more in scope, and it’s possible to dash and grapple all over the place while pelting demons with rockets. Combine this with the lighting, texture work, and overall amount of stuff going on, that too at 60 FPS, and DOOM: Eternal just looks unbelievable.

Currently in development for Xbox One, PS4, and PC (and Nintendo Switch as well), DOOM: Eternal releases in 2019. What are your thoughts on the gameplay? Let us know in the comments below.
