There was a lot of news revealed about Doom Eternal during Bethesda’s E3 2019 conference. As a Doom fan myself, the newest trailer has me really pumped up. It showcases multiple new arena’s, including a cathedral area, new environmental hazards, and brand new kill animations. My favorite of which either being the “bop” where he smashes the demon’s head into it’s body, or the kill where he breaks a demons arm and shoves it into it’s eye socket. The game just looks as visceral as a modern day doom should.
There was also a multiplayer mode introduced called Battlemode, and oddly enough it really fits the world of Doom well. They’ll be 2 on 1 battles between two demons and one demon slayer. As the demon, you have to strategize against the Doom Slayer, which is absolutely hilarious to me.
A collectors edition has also been announced, featuring an artbook, steelbook, wearable helmet, and many other goodies as shown above. The helmet will be completely wearable, and all together it will cost approximately $199.99.
The game will release on November 22nd, 2019.
