What made the original Doom an amazing experience? Was it the fast movement? The big guns? the demons that you’d make your personal target dummy? The music? The intensely polished visuals?
id Software believes it’s all of the above. At E3’s 2015 Bethesda press conference, they dropped the first ever gameplay reveal of the new reboot.
Here’s the trailer, I suggest a second pair of pants.
Well, that was quite the ride. With gorgeous visuals, visceral gunplay, and a clear focus on frenetic action, I am absolutely stoked to jump back into the world of Doom. I didn’t pay much attention to the series growing up, but I can tell you that if there was ever a game in the franchise to convince me I need it in my life, it is definitely DOOM.
And in case you didn’t get enough from that measly minute, here is the raw gameplay captured from the conference for your viewing pleasure, but be warned, it gets pixelated.
I think my favourite thing about the soundtrack beyond it’s otherworldly, hellish soundscapes and atmospheric droning and pulsing, is that Mick utilizes modern metal to help craft such a unique sound. From Djent to 9-string guitars to Russian synthesizers, he holds nothing back and it definitely shows.
You can expect DOOM to drop spring 2016 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
