Today at this years Quakecon, id Software have showcased some gameplay footage of DOOM Eternal. Originally teased at E3, the sequel to last years DOOM sees players step into the *bloody* boots of the Doom Slayer who is set to battle the Demon spawn of Hell, one more time!
The trailer (which you can view below) shows a lot of new gameplay mechanics. Firstly, the Doom Slayer has a new gauntlet which incorporates a blade that will be used for melee combat and glory kills. Another new feature is the addition of a grappling hook to the series staple Shotgun. This will be used for level parkour, as well as bringing the Hell Spawn closer to your Wrath. Everything in the video points to a bigger, faster and more brutal addition to the ever so popular franchise.
One of the biggest new additions is in the way DOOM Eternal will treat multiplayer. Players will be able to invade each other’s games and will also be able to co-op invade as well. It’s worth noting that it sounds like this feature will be entirely optional for those who wish to experience the story on their own.
Although no release date has been confirmed here’s hoping that the Doom Slayer doesn’t take too long to grace our Xbox’s!
