Doom Eternal’s First Gameplay Trailer And Details Revealed
Bethesda has released the first gameplay video for Doom Eternal, the sequel to the 2016 reboot. The follow-up was originally announced during Bethesda’s E3 2018 press conference with a cinematic trailer. This trailer was shown once again during the QuakeCon keynote, before game director Marty Stratton and creative director Hugo Martin appeared on stage to discuss the sequel.
Doom Eternal will be about shooting monsters with big ass guns, and for the sequel, the Doom Slayer will be the “strongest, most badass hero” id Software has ever created. The Slayer has had a transformation and has a new weapon called the Ballista, which can spear demons with a fiery bolt. There’s going to be lots of new weapons in Eternal, and id Software has built new enemies for players to challenge. Old favorites have been renewed, and some have been reinvented, such as the arachnids.
They also revealed off a new character called the Marauder, who looks a lot like the Doom Slayer–and there’s a story behind that, the developers teased. A new system called “Destructible Demons” was also briefly mentioned, and it’ll help players “rip and tear” through enemies.
