Ok. So we all know E3 is normally littered with amazing announcements and awesome gameplay glimpses. So when Bethesda chose to have their own conference for the first time ever, it was a no brainer to assume they'd have to set the bar high.
Well, they have. Really high. Knocked the ball into the stratosphere high.
We got to see some gameplay footage of DOOM 4 and not only does it look buttery smooth and drenched in sweet, sweet blood, it's what all out gaming dreams are made of!
Developed by id software, pioneers of the first person shooter, DOOM 4 marks the return of an historic franchise. Going back to its roots of faced paced, brutal, brain splattering fun!
"Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes. Expand your gameplay experience using DOOM SnapMap game editor to easily create, play, and share your content with the world."
As you'd hope and expect, there is a narrative behind the games main campaign. The UACs massive research facility on Mars has been overrun by fierce and powerful demons with only you, a lone DOOM Marine, standing between the demon forces and our world. You've got just one task. Kill them all!
Here's what you can expect from DOOM 4!
• A Relentless Campaign - There is no taking cover or stopping to regenerate health as you beat back Hell’s raging demon hordes. Combine your arsenal of futuristic and iconic guns, upgrades, movement and an advanced melee system to knock-down, slash, stomp, crush, and blow apart demons in creative and violent ways.
• Return of id Multiplayer - Dominate your opponents in DOOM’s signature, fast-paced arena-style combat. In both classic and all-new game modes, annihilate your enemies utilizing your personal blend of skill, powerful weapons, vertical movement, and unique power-ups that allow you to play as a demon.
• DOOM SnapMap – a powerful, but easy-to-use game and level editor – allows for limitless gameplay experiences on every platform. Without any previous experience or special expertise, any player can quickly and easily snap together and visually customize maps, add pre-defined or completely custom gameplay, and even edit game logic to create new modes. Instantly play your creation, share it with a friend, or make it available to players around the world – all in-game with the push of a button.
