DOOM Eternal’s brutal gameplay revealed at QuakeCon 2018

The music seems to take the same heavy and metallic route of the last game, so we'll be looking forward to that soundtrack.

We're getting our next look at DOOM Eternal - including our first look at the gameplay of the title and likely some more information about the title's plot - at QuakeCon in August.

The footage also introduces enemies, both old and new.

It's worth watching, but a few of the things revealed during the stream confirm that the team certainly aren't in the business of reinventing what made the original Doom so badass, they're simply expanding on it and packing more meat onto the bones. The video should begin at the Doom Eternal section, which is around the one hour 16 minutes mark. Set to an all-new pulse pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, players will fight across dimensions as they slay new and classic demons with powerful new weapons and abilities. There's no need to worry, purists - you'll be able to turn this feature off and enjoy the game as a strictly solo experience. If ID Software could make that happen again, Doom Eternal might end up the best Doom yet.

There's a lot to be excited about, but DOOM Eternal doesn't have a release date yet.

A ton of stuff is new to Doom Eternal.

Doom Eternal has no release window as of right now but will release on Xbox One, PS4, PC, AND Nintendo Switch... yes, you read that right.

Promising "twice as many demons", DOOM Eternal will bring back the likes of the Archvile, Pain Elemental, and the Arachnotron, as you'll see in the gameplay reveal trailer below. We'll report on it as soon as it does. "We're not building a Doom game, we're building a Doom universe". Sign me up. New weapons include a wrist-mounted retractable blade used for the bloody "glory kills" that the game challenges you to complete and a shoulder-mounted flamethrower that's flawless for char-broiling large groups of baddies at the same time.
