Doom Eternal's latest new boss is an unholy fusion of machine and demon with one purpose: to annihilate the Doom Slayer.
Doom Eternal has double the demons as Doom 2016, and id makes good on its promise for maximum carnage with a new hulking sentinel boss called the Doom Hunter. Unveiled at Quakecon 2019 with some kick-ass footage, the Doom Hunter is basically a terminator created by the sentinel faction--only instead of hunting Sarah Connor, it wants to vanquish the Slayer.
The Doom Hunter somewhat resembles Sabaoth from Doom 3, and has tons of insane weaponry at his disposal including tons of back-firing rockets, a molten chainsaw arm, and a huge cannon-hand. And of course in true Doom fashion, this monstrosity zooms around on a hovercraft with two cannons in the front.
Doom Eternal rolls out on November 22, 2019 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Developed by id Software, DOOM® Eternal™ is the direct sequel to DOOM®, winner of The Game Awards' Best Action Game of 2016. Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power as you rip-and-tear your way across dimensions with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat. Powered by idTech 7 and set to an all-new pulse-pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, DOOM Eternal puts you in control of the unstoppable DOOM Slayer as you blow apart new and classic demons with powerful weapons in unbelievable and never-before-seen worlds.
As the DOOM Slayer, you return to find Earth has suffered a demonic invasion. Raze Hell and discover the Slayer's origins and his enduring mission to rip and tear...until it is done.
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.
You can't kill demons when you're dead, and you can't stay alive without resources. Take what you need from your enemies: Glory kill for extra health, incinerate for armor, and chainsaw demons to stock up on ammo. These tools are the key to your survival and becoming the ultimate demon-slayer.
A New Class of (Destructible) Demon
Obliterate more demons than ever before, each with unique attacks and abilities. 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.
BATTLEMODE is the new 2 versus 1 multiplayer experience built from the ground up at id Software. A fully-armed DOOM Slayer faces off against two player-controlled demons, duking it out over three rounds of intense first-person combat. More details coming soon!
