Mars is going to be a lot less hospitable when the new Doom comes out. At its E3 2015 keynote held on Sunday evening, Bethesda took the time to show us its second best game (fallout 4 is first), they gave us our first extended look at the game that will drag us into the depths of the Red Planet’s underworld.
The 2015 reboot of the original 1993 PC masterpiece will be developed by id Software and released on the PS4, Xbox One and PC in spring 2016.
Doom is a reboot of the franchise. It’s not really Doom 4, and won’t continue the story of Doom 3. It’s a training simulation to prepare the first settlers of Mars before they get there… that or it’s an origin game, a true remake that takes place on Mars and will have the brutal, gory gunplay that made the original so beloved. I mean you can use a chainsaw to dice up enemies in any direction. Any direction.
The first gameplay demo consisted of the UAC protagonist zipping around Hell, performing blood-soaked melee attacks and using the super shotgun to completely dismember any demons in his path.
It looks like the most brutal Doom yet, and you won’t be sneaking around so much as you will blowing the Hell out of well Hell’s biggest monsters. Plus, you’ll be able to double-jump. And climb up the sides of crates and up through gaps.
Bethesda also announced that Doom will include multiplayer with free-for-all, capture the flag and team deathmatch variants. Also new is Doom Snapmap, a create-your-own game mode editor for creators of all skill levels, it literally allows you to take premade blocks and snap them together. It looks pretty damn good.
It can’t be worse than doom 3 right?
