After years of waiting, the fourth iteration of Doom has been officially unveiled, detailed, and named. Called simply Doom, this game brings the story back to the beginning. It's an origin story.
At this year's QuakeCon conference, id Software showed off the new game, finally detailing what exactly we can expect. It focuses on fast-paced combat and it takes place on Mars, outside of a Union Aerospace Corporation building. You'll be using melee combat a lot, and combat is brutal. Id is designing crazy enemies and weapons, and you'll be able to carry around a large arsenal "all at the same time," executive producer Marty Stratton said.
Doom looks to be especially violent. During one section of the demo id presented, the player ripped an arm off of a guard to get through a biometric scanner. The player proceeded to then wield a chainsaw, wreaking havoc.
In 2008, id announced that it was working on Doom 4, the next installment in the long-running first-person shooter franchise. Publisher Bethesda then revealed in 2011 that the project had been completely scrapped and restarted. Original Doom creator and longtime id Software programmer John Carmack also left the studio last November, joining Rift VR developer Oculus as its Chief Technical Officer.
Finally, when Wolfenstein released in May 2014, we got word of the game again. We learned that there would be a beta for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Now, we know what it's called and how it looks.
No release details have been announced yet, but the game will launch for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It runs on id Tech 6 at 1080p and 60 frames per second. Are you excited by a new Doom game? Let us know in the comments!
