Doom 2 May Be Announced at E3 2018

The gates of Hell are probably going to open on Mars soon again as publisher Bethesda Softworks has teased us so. We are talking about one of the best first-person shooter games ever made and expecting an announcement for a sequel to 2016's Doom from the newly rebooted franchise. If we got the indication right according to a studio executive from Bethesda, then Doom 2 will be announced at E3 2018. In that case, we should be prepared to deal with hell demons on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Back in 1993, Doom introduced us to the madness of first-person shooter games and took players on a roller costar ride to Hell and beyond. After the original, a sequel, Doom II followed next year and Doom 3 came out a decade later. We even received a live-action Doom movie featuring Hollywood superstar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle). However, that one failed miserably and entire series took a reboot with 2016's Doom game, which reinvented the franchise.

Lately, Pete Hines, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Bethesda Softworks was present in an event at PAX East and in an interview he was asked what they are planning for the latter half of 2018. In response, he said:

“I couldn’t give you any guesses as to what we’re going to announce and when those games will be out. But I will say, we have a lot of new stuff to talk about at E3. Whether or not folks realize it, this is the hell on Earth time for us with E3. We are in the midst of so much planning and work for all of that content but I’m really excited."
Though he did not mention the word "Doom" or "Sequel" a single time but fans of the series may have already realized what went down there. For those who are still trying to figure out what was in Hines’ comments, we suggest you to focus on his mention of "Hell on Earth". The actual sequel of the first game was titled "Doom II: Hell on Earth", which place on Earth as demons from Hell have laid an invasion. That brings our hero Doomguy back in action to save our planet as well as mankind.

Originally debuted on MS-DOS, Hell on Earth was an overall improvement on everything its predecessor was and became a best-selling title upon release. If Bethesda is actually teasing that title and can do things right like they did on reboot of Doom in 2016, we are waiting for another potential critical and commercial success ahead of time. Right now, Bethesda is probably prioritizing this one because E3 2018 is nearing. Besides, they also announced Wolfenstein II and The Evil Within 2 at last year's E3.

Doom 4K Update

Pretty sure whether you are just an average first person shooter fan or a Doom lover, you would definitely appreciate the sadistic enjoyment of slaying demons on Mars. We had to give it to developer id Software to team up with publisher Bethesda Softworks to rejuvenate the fan-favorite Doom series with 2016's release of the same name. With their regular series of updates, they are keeping the game fresh and the newest update should make console fans happy because Doom will now support 4K!

Yes, that's right. This is an age of upgraded graphics and since we are living in a time when world's most powerful video game consoles are available to experience some of the finest visuals, we should feast our eyes. The newest update dated for March 29, heading towards the game will allow people to enjoy 4K resolution on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. This is only fitting that Doom is finally adding cutting-edge graphics display to their fast-paced shooting title.

We have a short display of how it would feel to chop off the heads of demons from Hell in this new gameplay trailer.




The core fun of brutally massacring the demon hordes of Hell is now intensified a few folds. Those BFG blasts you shoot will be felt like never before and so the fun of slicing chainsaw through your enemy heads will be uncomfortably satisfying. The 4K resolution patch is only exclusive for the above mentioned platforms as the other consoles do not support higher caliber of graphics superiority like them.

After the worldwide release of Doom on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Bethesda focused on a port for Nintendo Switch in 2017. Now, the latest update will include PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X to their available platform list as well. Doom is already pretty great on any given day and now running on 4K is going to make it even better. The publisher has urged the players to upload their very own 4K screenshots on social media and tag them too.

Doom on Switch Adds Motion Controls

If first-person shooter game Doom from id Software has taught us anything that would be blasting off demons is never a boring chore. People who want to have this simple enjoyment on-the-go have sought to the Nintendo Switch version of the game when this demon-slaying fest debuted on the platform. With a newly released update, Doom has added "Motion Controls" for Switch console.

Ever since the game is ported to Switch, people have been asking about "Motion Aiming" using the built-in gyroscope of the Joy-Con to let them aim more accurately. The traditional aiming with the analog stick of the controller is still there but mixing the two options at hand, you can play the game with more precise control. Courtesy of 1.1.1 patch, you can find the "Motion Aiming" option under the setting menu for Controller.

Aiming at your enemies with the game stick can be a bit painful and tough when there are massive oncoming hordes on your way to overwhelm you. So, without any mention of the most-requested feature, Bethesda just added it to the menu so that you can aim better with a simple tilt of the console. Perhaps, they had it planned all along and saw the release of this new patch a nice way to let people have some more fun. Players who gave it a shot claim that, this new update definitely increases game's performance for them.

The brand-new patch also comes with support for multiplayer fans as a new party system is now part of Doom's multiplayer. This is a great way to gather your friends and troops online to join the monster slaying fest on Hell. A new Game Icon will now appear below the main menu of Nintendo Switch, just like the one you saw on the game's boxart. Besides, apart from Motion Controls and Party Support, the patch offers a few minor fixes to improve the experience, which includes some audio issues too.

Doom is a reboot of the popular video game series from the 90's by id Software and Bethesda Softworks, released on 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Out Now

America needs saving right now from the Nazi forces that has taken over the great country of the brave and who else to do it better than BJ Blazkowicz? He is the last hope of bringing freedom to his people and the one who can overthrow the Nazi Empire by set another American Revolution in motion in one of the most awaited and anticipated sequel of the Wolfenstein series, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Out Now

After the previous adventures, Kreisau Circle found Blazkowicz in a coma-induced state and retrieved him from there to revive. Now, Blazkowicz is back in his boots to jump into the heart of action against the hordes of Nazi enemies that has taken over his land for long. But enough is enough and now's BJ's time to roll with those machine guns against the enemy and re-liberate the United States of America to make it great again.

BJ's old nemesis, the sadistic Nazi commander Frau Engel is back to stop him from being victorious in his quest and her army of über soldiers are fully determined to make sure it happens. It's not just the soldiers that our brave hero has to deal with but there are big-ass Nazi war machines that will force to use all the fire-power of your arsenal like the rapid-fire grenade launcher or the Dieselkratwerk.

From a post-apocalyptic Manhattan to the lands of New Mexico, you will ride along with BJ in his mission for freedom. Several familiar faces like Anya, Caroline and Max Hass will show up as well as new characters to join our hero of liberty in his quest. Together they all will build a strong resistance against the Nazis.

Belonging to the action-adventure first-person shooter video game, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is already out now and it will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from now on, courtesy of Bethesda Softworks and MachineGames. Nintendo Switch owners will probably get their hands on the game sometime in 2018.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Launch Trailer

The return of the Wolfenstein franchise with the latest title Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has kept fans and everyone else on their eager tippy toes since it had made its presence known at E3 2017. It's been a hot topic of discussion for gamers all around the world since then. Specially, hardcore action game lovers are speculating the game to become one of the best action titles of this year, when it will finally comes out.

wolfenstein ii the new colossus trailer
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Launch Trailer

Bethesda Softworks has recently dropped the launch trailer for The New Colossus and filled with some awesome action sequences, it is right below for you to check out right now.




Set in the alternate take of the history, the trailer opens with a host welcoming the audience to America's number one game show "German . . . or Else!". Then it cuts back to a distress message where leader of the American Resistance, Grace Walker invites her fellow Americans to join the rebellion against the Nazi forces who took over the U.S. by killing their countrymen as series protagonist William "B.J." Blazkowicz keeps slaughtering the Nazi enemies in a berserk mode.

It is probably not necessary at this point to retell you that in The New Colossus, Nazis have won World War II and America is under their rule. Yet, our hero Blazkowicz tirelessly takes down the members of the Ku Klux Klan as a member of the Resistance. Scenes of both Nazis killing American citizens like animals and the hero killing the enemies with guns and grenades will probably blow your mind, because it gives you a fair idea of how much raw violence you are about to get into in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

The trailer then ends on an interesting note when the audience in the room leaves their chair and stood chanting "Hail Hitler" with the entrance of an elderly Adolf Hitler wearing a robe and coughing. His face remained unseen though.

We are already too close to the date when Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will hit PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 27, 2017. The Nintendo Switch version will probably come out sometime in 2018.

Bethesda Softworks have previously announced to bring The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch in June, 2017 and Switch owners were jumping with joy to have this great title on their port. Then, after a few days, it becomes clear that the developer studio is actually up to port a lot of their fan-favorite titles to Switch eventually.

We promised that if there was any further development regarding this matter, we will update you and here we are with an interview clip that features executive producer Marty Stratton and creative director Hugo Martin from id Software talking about Doom's Nintendo Switch debut.




Recently, Bethesda has officially confirmed Doom's Nintendo Switch version release date and it is November 10, 2017. The gates of hell will open in North America and Europe on the same day. Given the limitations of the platform, the boys at id Soft tried their level best to put everything they could into the release to deliver the experience of the original Doom.

On Switch, Doom will mostly be like an arcade experience as the developers see it. Players on Nintendo Switch will get the entire single-player campaign. All of the difficulty modes will be there including the "Ultra Nightmare" mode where you play with a single life and can die from a single blow. There is the arcade mode, so that you can replay all the levels over and over. All the weapons and runes will be there for you but also there is always a clock ticking.

In multiplayer, the gameplay is fast-paced and quite competitive. There are 12 modes, along with 18 maps to explore and all the DLC packs will be there too. Team death-match or capture mode, you name it, it's there. Overall, without tuning anything done they really tried to bring all the actual features of the main game.

The people who already played Doom before and the one who are going to enjoy the game for the first time on Switch, it will be great experience for them both. Since, this is not a game which people can play for half an hour and then leave, Doom sure will provide you hours of monster slaying fun-moments that will make it worth.

The Evil Within 2 Ending Explained

Being famous for being created by Resident Evil game creator Shinji Mikami, which despite being a survival horror is not-Resident Evil. Tango Gameworks brilliantly picked up many elements of its spiritual mentor and yet managed to be a unique series of its own, teaming up with Bethesda Softworks. Players got to go into a world that is completely other-worldly and was built with elements of horrors.

The Evil Within 2 Ending Explained

The game is just out now and it's been only a few days after. So, out best guess is that, many of you who have stumbled onto this post have not probably finished the entire game yet. It will take you over 16 hours more or less to finish The Evil Within 2 and as we are about to do a lot of spoiler, you might as well finish the game first and read this article if you don't want to be spoiled in advance.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR THE EVIL WITHIN 2.

The game revolves around police detective Sebastian Castellanos of Krimson City, who was in charge of a mass murder case at Beacon Mental Hospital. His investigation led him with his partner Joseph Oda and Junior Detective Juli Kidman into a world of abnormality and monstrosities walking around every corner, trying to take their lives at all times. There, Sebastian came to know of a shadow organization Mobius and their secret project STEM. With assistance from Juli, he was able to destroy STEM and got out of it.

The Tragic House Fire

Now, this is what led Sebastian to the plot point of The Evil Within 2 and from here, the story progresses onwards. He has spent three years solving the mystery of Beacon Mental Hospital and the involvement of Mobius with it because no one believed him on that. Meanwhile, his wife Myra goes missing and he lost his daughter Lily to a house fire. Even if it was years ago and even before the STEM incident, it led him to drown in his sorrows and seeking solace in a bar by drowning into liquor bottles.

His former partner and a double-agent for Mobius, Juli Kidman approaches him with the news of his daughter Lily being alive and in order to save her, Sebastian has to enter the STEM once again. He enters the other-worldly plane inside the STEM and as he saw before, the people inside the town called The Union were going crazy and trying to kill each other.

Inside The Union

Mobius also sent a team of Julian Sykes, Liam O’Neal, Miles Harrison, William Baker and Yukiko Hoffman, whom detective Castellanos keeps an eye on. Sebastian finds the team leader of Mobius operatives, William Baker already dead but is stuck in a repeated photographic loop of his brains blowing out. He meets a deranged psychopath named Steafno Valentini, who was a former war photographer gone insane and now he kills people to create art with them.

Photographic Death Loop

Steafno join forces with Mobius neuro specialist named Theodore Wallace, who went AWOL and now wants control over the machine. As Union starts breaking down, Steafno goes crazier. He is actually after Sebastian's daughter Lily, whom Theodore wanted to get his hands on as Lily is acting as the Core for STEM just like Ruvik was before.

The Deadly Photographer

It appears that Sebastian's wife Myra is also a part of this madness, who never believed that her child died. So, when Juli offered her a chance to get her daughter back, she agreed to be a part of the plan of taking down Mobius along with a soldier named Esmeralda Torres and Theodore Wallace. The plan was to replace Lily and Myra taking her place as the Core to shut them down from the inside.

In The Name of Father Theodore

However, while everyone else was following the original plan, Theodore decides to take Lily and gain control over Mobius through STEM, because all of Mobius’ employees are connected to it. His faced was scarred by Myra when he forcibly tried to take Lily from her after they just rescued the girl. As they were fighting, Lily gets stranded within the Union. Mobius sent more agents to retrieve Lily but they all end up dead inside.

The Quest for Lily

Upon her plan falling apart, Juli Kidman brought Sebastian in to help save his wife and daughter in a last ditch effort. Unable to get his hands on the power he seeks, Theodore lures Steafno Valentini and others with his power of manipulation to hunt down Lily in exchange for great powers. As the entire STEM was using Lily as its Core, the Union starts breaking up after she went into hiding. As a side effect, many of the residents start losing their minds before turning into savage creatures, The Lost and killing others present there.

Among The Lost

When Steafno eventually manages to get Lily, it caused the Union to break apart even more but he is killed at the hands of Sebastian before he could hand over her to Father Theodore. Turned into a monster now, Myra takes Lily and run away. Theodore desperately tries to convince Sebastian of providing power and safety, in exchange for total submission but got declined. The madman then kills all the Mobius members except Liam O’Neal, whom he took control over.

Myra Becomes Matriach

In the ensuing clash between Theodore Wallace and Sebastian Castellanos sees the end of many lives. The villain phase-shifts out of there and with help from a dying Liam, Theodore is flushed out again. Esmeralda Torres gets accidentally shot by Sebastian during this time but she ends up dying while trying to save her. She was actually the one that Mobius sent to burn down his house and abduct Lily. So, seeing this as a chance for redemption, she joined Juli in her mission.

In one final showdown, Sebastian gets the upper hand on Father Theodore even after the latter unleashing a wave of past horrors on his mind but then is impaled by Myra in the end. Theodore also stabs at her neck before she delivers the fatal blow and Union starts falling apart even further. Myra takes a monstrous form that attacks Sebastian but then also helped him reunite with his daughter before bidding them goodbye.

the evil within 2 juli kidman
Juli Kidman Betrays Mobius

Seeing Sebastian made it out alive, the chief executive of Mobius orders Juli Kidman to instruct him to the extraction point. Then Sebastian will be killed and Lily will be taken so that they can re-build the STEM again. Juli decides to carry out her original plan and retaliates against her fellow agents. By working along with Myra, Juli brings down STEM from within and then kills all the Mobius employees using a signal to destroy the implants in their body. She helps them escape from Mobius facility as Sebastian and Lily escaped Union right before it collapsed. The father-daughter duo then rides off to the sunset like a typical happy ending.

We believed that everything with Mobius or STEM ended here but as the post-credit scene starts rolling, we see that STEM reboots itself. This probably hints that Myra is still alive inside the program and also for a sequel maybe!

Well, the entire setup on which the story of The Evil Within 2 has taken place is an exceptional one and that separates the game from typical monster-hunting spree of other horror games. Presented by Bethesda Softworks, The Evil Within 2 is now available to take you on a journey of survival horror as you play it on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Shinji Mikami also wants to release the game on Nintendo Switch if possible as Bethesda is already working on many of their titles to release on Switch.

Doom, Fallout 4 and Skyrim VR Release Date

Virtual reality is becoming a trend these days and it is also impacting the video game industry. Many studios who realize the potential of riding this tide are releasing VR versions of their popular titles now to give their fans an all-new 3D experience and Bethesda Softworks decides to be wise like that. So, what they did is that they have taken projects of pre-existing games like Doom, Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to produce VR versions for them.

Doom, Fallout 4 and Skyrim VR Release Date

Doom
Aside from the superior graphics excellence of modern time, Doom actually hasn't evolved from its core concept of shooting massive hordes of demons from Mars, beside the improved visuals have amplified the intensity of the game even more. We are not saying that's a bad thing but how about getting a bit more up close and personal with the minions of Hell? That wouldn't be so bad and Bethesda already gave us a preview of how it would look like at E3 2017 Showcase. We agree that Doom VFR will blow first person shooter loving gamers mind if not the brains.




Fallout 4
Fallout 4 is perhaps the most successful title of the entire Fallout series and probably that is why Bethesda has chosen the title for a VR treatment. As you struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, the virtual reality makes the aspects of the game pretty real to you. The entire game is re-imagined and you will notice that in combat and crafting. It's not just a tour of the Wasteland but the complete in-game world of the original game and t hat includes hundreds of locations. Even if you have played Fallout 4 before, this is a chance to experience the game once more with a new perspective.




The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The entire open world of action role-playing game Skyrim along with three of its official DLC; Dawnguard, Dragonborn and Hearthfire are what you are getting in Skyrim VR. The scale and depth of this epic fantasy is re-imagined as you fight to save the world from the menace of the fabled dragon Alduin the World-Eater. Fighting dragons and exploring mountains will be more lifelike now than it was when you played Skyrim previously. Be sure to choose your own way to roam this open world as you play.




What we learn about the release dates for these VR projects are that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will see release for PlayStation VR on November 17 and then on HTC Vive at some point in 2018. Doom VFR will come out next on December 1 for PlayStation VR and Vive. Fallout 4 VR will be released on PC for the HTC Vive and the release date is December 12. So, we can be pretty thankful to Bethesda Softworks for bringing us all these virtual reality games throughout the year and expect them to create some original VR games as well.
