E3 2019 - Doomslayer isn't just battling demons in Doom Eternal. He's unleashing fury onto the high heavens and every dimension in between.
Doom Eternal isn't just set on Earth, but will break the inter-dimensional barrier for some serious omni-world mayhem. id Softworks is taking us on a huge blood-soaked journey across the fabric of reality, from the heavens to duke it out with archangels and slay gods to the fiery depths of hell and all the dark spaces in between.
"We're not building a new world for Doom, but an entire new universe. Earth is on the brink of annihilation. It's being consumed by demons, and your crusade to save it will take you across dimensions to locations never before seen in Doom, from Heaven to Hell to the Sentinel homeworld and beyond," said Marty Stratton, executive producer on Doom Eternal.
id showed off some fresh gameplay footage that was absolutely amazing. Everything was so smooth, brutal, and incredibly detailed...every murderous execution, every double jump, every bit of clever evasion.
Doom Eternal sports a grappling hook this time around that lets Doomslayer traverse environments vertically, and it even acts like a Scorpion-esque torture device to yank enemies closer to you. Eternal will also arm Doomslayer with a smoldering angel-slaying claymore for maximum brute chaos.
"There's so much to see and discover in Doom Eternal. But Doom has always been about gameplay. And Doom Eternal promises to be the ultimate power fantasy. The fun comes from mastering the experience, because you are the Doomslayer, the strongest, fastest demon-killer in existence. And nothing can stand in your way," said creative director Hugo Martin.
The classic cyberdemon even showed up for a rematch...but surely it won't stand up to the might of the BFG 9000.
Doom Eternal looks to be 2019's top shooter and launches on November 22, 2019 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Slayer Threat Level at Maximum
Gain access to the latest demon-killing tech with the DOOM Slayer's advanced Praetor Suit, including a shoulder-mounted flamethrower and the retractable wrist-mounted DOOM Blade. Upgraded guns and mods, such as the Super Shotgun's new distance-closing Meat Hook attachment, and abilities like the Double Dash make you faster, stronger, and more versatile than ever.

A New Class of (Destructible) Demon

Fan-favorite classics such as the Pain Elemental, Archvile, and Arachnotron make their return, while a horde of totally-new demons join the roster including the DOOM Hunter, Marauder, and the Gladiator. Rip apart your favorite demons to the core with DOOM Eternal's "destructible demons" system and take your power fantasy to new levels.
Demonic Invasion Detected
As the Slayer, allow other players to invade your campaign as demons for a dramatic and unpredictable twist anytime you're playing the campaign. Or be a demon and invade other players' campaigns either by yourself or with someone else to give the Slayer a true taste of Hell.
