DOOM Eternal: release date, news, trailers and more

After the monumental success of its 2016 reboot, id Software is working on DOOM: Eternal, a sequel that will see our favourite space marine challenge demons as they seek to invoke hell on earth. Following in the narrative footsteps of the classic originals, Eternal has all the ingredients to be another wonderfully violent shooter we can’t wait to lose ourselves in.

DOOM Eternal – what is it?

It’s a direct sequel to the 2016 reboot, something that is immediately obvious from the DOOM Marine himself and the denizens of demons hungry for bullets in the debut trailer. Mick Gordon has also returned to compose the soundtrack, ensuring we’ll have plenty of metal brilliance to rock out to while vanquishing evil.

Presumably, after the events of DOOM, Samuel Hayden has succeeded in unleashing the hordes of hell onto our planet after subduing our hero in the game’s final moments. If true, the faithful marine has plenty to be mad about. So, get ready for a brutal and bloody journey.

DOOM Eternal Gameplay – How does it play?

No in-game footage has been shown thus far for DOOM: Eternal, with a more substantial debut to take place at QuakeCon in August. Considering the relatively small gap between Eternal and its predecessor, we imagine many of the same elements will return with a bunch of welcome refinements.

We expect the return of fast, frantic gunplay alongside glory kills and classic weapons ripe for experimentation. Time will tell whether the multiplayer mode will return, which received a lukewarm reception compared to the beloved campaign. One thing we’d love to see is the arcade mode implemented as a post-launched update available right away in DOOM: Eternal.
