DOOM – E3 2015 Gameplay Trailer

doom-4DOOM! Doom 4! No, it’s DOOM with capital letters!! TEGGUN!!!

Yes, let’s wet our pants in excitement because if it’s even half as awesome as the trailer suggests, this will be incredible bone-crunching and blood-curdling fun! That said, I was rather disappointed with Doom 3 as I seemed to spend too much time fighting monsters in the dark, unless there was a light switch somewhere and the baddies were hiding it. In any event, this looks kick-ass and hopefully will get the series back on track. John Romero isn’t involved, sadly, though.

Developed by Id Software and to be released by Bethesda Softworks (who need to make more review copies of games available as they’ve been in short supply of late), the game takes place on Mars, where the UAC Corporation have been discovering artificial symbols that marked Mars and brought an army of demons from Hell. D’oh!

There’s a single-player mode, plus many multiplayer modes which include traditional 4r-player deathmatch, domination, freeze tag, and clan arena. It’ll also include an in-built tool titled “Doom SnapMap” which allows players to construct custom maps, and share it with the online community.

Classic weapons such as the super shotgun and BFG-9000 make a return, along with enemies from the original games such as the Revenant and Cyberdemon.

Check out the trailer below and the game is due for release in Spring 2016. And that date won’t slip back at all. After all, it’s only been in production since May 2008!
