Doom Eternal's reveal came earlier this year during E3 where it was shown alongside the showcasing of other big Bethesda projects such as Rage 2 and The Elder Scrolls VI. Let's have a look on these two games that Xbox is offering for Game Pass this week! The game will feature double the enemies compared to the previous title, and they will also visibly take damage from weapons fire, with chunks of body parts being blown off.
Instead of latching on to environment features (or perhaps in addition - it's not clear), the Meat Hook attaches to "living" demons, pulling Doom Guy in close for even more spectacular kills. Paired with a new boost mechanic, Doom Eternal is looking to strengthen the speedy shooter.
Once again, DOOM Eternal puts players in control of the DOOM Slayer, a gun-toting, demon-murdering antihero hellbent on revenge (no pun intended).
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. You'll also get a new dash skill to help navigate the underworld. Of course, the footage was packed with a variety of terrifying new demon types, including a teased boss encounter.
Promising "twice as many demons", DOOM Eternal will bring back the likes of the Archvile, Pain Elemental, and the Arachnotron, as you'll see in the gameplay reveal trailer below.
What New Things Can We Expect?The Nintendo Switch version will be handled by Panic Button, who previously ported Doom (2016) to the console. However, in Eternal players can actually team up and invade other players as a group of demons.
A optimistic estimate would suggest that Doom Eternal might release towards the end of 2019.
