Look I know that we have Battlefield 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Black Ops 4 on the horizon, but one game I am keeping a close eye on is Doom Eternal.
To say that I loved the reboot of Doom is a huge understatement. It had a story that I actually cared about and the combat in the game was absolutely brutal and I mean that as a compliment. Doom did not screw around when it came to the gore and violence.
From what I have been reading, Doom Eternal is going to be kicking things up about a million notches. The idea of the gameplay in Doom Eternal is that you now move around a level much quicker than you did in Doom. This is by design and the idea is that it will make players much more aggressive.
Running around the map chopping off one demons head with a chainsaw here, a shotgun to the head there all before spinning around 180 and blasting whatever has been on your tail the whole time sounds like a lot of fun. I think it is great that they are not just trying to give us more of the same, but actually improving on what Doom already did. Which when you consider how good Doom was is pretty cool.
In a recent interview, one of the developers had this to say,
“DOOM Eternal has some incredible enemies. We want you to feel unleashed like nothing is holding you back. This is a pure, unfiltered, action FPS experience.”
I think this is the perfect way to describe Doom Eternal; Unleashed! We still do not have a definitive date for when Doom Eternal will be released, but I have high hopes that it is going to be early next year.
