As the teaser opens, what we can see is that a backdrop which does not seem like Mars but resembles much to Earth. Buildings are on fire, freakish creatures and monstrosities like Revenants are wandering around while the camera goes forward through debris. It's definitely Earth and demons from Hell has taken over and running rampant. We see a skull belonging to Baron of Hell, which is crushed by Doomguy only to face a horde of demons while he loads a double-barreled shotgun.

Back in April, Pete Hines of Bethesda cryptically hinted that Doom 2 may be announced at E3 2018 during an event at PAX East, so this doesn't come as a surprise to us. Reboot of Doom in 2016 was a re-imagining of the original game and most probably, the sequel will follow the second one, Doom II: Hell on Earth. Although there is no mention of "Hell on Earth" anywhere in upcoming sequel's title, the entire settings of demons reigning on Earth seem pretty reminiscent of that phrase.

Doom Eternal is expected to release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but we don't have a release date in hand right now. Even though we haven't seen any new enemies yet, that cool shotgun is a hint that there will be new weapons. A gameplay live-stream will be held on August 10 during Quakecon and we can certainly hope to get more details on the story as well as gameplay for sure. If they can keep up to the expectation of players and maintain excellence, the sequel could also be a critical and commercial success.
