The game looks to be even faster than its predecessor, introducing some new traversal mechanics like swinging from an exposed pipe. We also got our first look at one of the massive bosses in the game. Destroy every demon in your path with an upgraded array of guns and mods, including the Super Shotgun's new Meat Hook attachment to pull yourself point blank with the faces of hell. "And [we want to give] people more reasons to come back, whether it's Invasion, or DLC, it's really important to us".
All in all, Doom has never looked more like Doom based on today's footage. During QuakeCon, the Doom Eternal demo was running on what Stratton described as "very high-end" PCs. However, gameplay footage was missing from the announcement, with only a short cinematic trailer being shown. Initial reports seem to indicate that Doom Eternal will launch on Switch on the same day as other platforms. Don't worry though - if you have enough trouble with Doom's AI demons, you can turn off invasions. So if you're not a fan of gore then don't hit play, but for the rest of you tell us if you enjoy what you see.
Doom is a first-person shooter video game developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks.
This mode will allow everyone to invade someone else's single player campaign and be as much destructive as you can be by being a Demon which will give Doom slayer a real taste of hell.
DOOM Eternal was also confirmed for the Nintendo Switch so it is now launching alongside the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. If you access to Xbox Game Pass and do not see them, they should appear in just a few minutes. However, in Eternal players can actually team up and invade other players as a group of demons.
Developer Panic Button, the studio who brought the original DOOM to Switch previous year, may or may not be the ones handling it this time.
No release date has been set for Doom Eternal.
