We are not sure if newly introduced features as taking control of demons and send them to sabotage another player’s campaign will be part of the port or not but that melee blade weapon or a mounted flamethrower on shoulder of Doom Slayer and a ton more new awesome guns included in the sequel alone will keep the fun intact. Plus, the change of surroundings brings a fresh vibe that gives you a feel of being at home or maybe whatever left of it after a demonic invasion.

Before Doom arriving on Switch in late 2017 the franchise has mostly been absent from Nintendo platforms and now its worthy successor is apparently going to follow the same path as well. Releasing the game right away with other platforms is quite a big deal since it is going to be one of the biggest upcoming hits. Announced back at E3 2018 press conference, Doom Eternal only revealed as much as a short teaser of Doomguy stepping over to take on an oncoming horde on Earth.

The first gameplay reveal for Doom Eternal is shown in QuakeCon 2018 and it has some badass action to blow your mind.

Making an astounding reveal back at E3 2018 press conference, Doom Eternal came to light as the long-anticipated sequel to first-person action shooter game DOOM from 2026 by developer id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks. Series protagonist Doomguy has returned from his mission on Mars but his work is far from over, because demons are invading on this planet and has completely overrun it.

The trailer starts with a first-person perspective of DOOM Marine, who takes the helmet of his Praetor Suit in his hand and then wears it as his system is activated. He checks out his side-arm knife and loads his iconic double barreled shotgun before going into demon slaying action. He goes further to see outside from a tall building that Hell has been unleashed on Earth and demons are everywhere. Doom Slayer begins his ruthless onslaught on a nearby horde of demonic minions.

Alongside some new arsenal at the disposal of our hero, he will be facing some new menacing enemies as well. Even the Praetor Suit he wears received some upgrade and revision to make him more deadly. Classic enemies like Arachnotron, Mancubus, Pain elemental and Zombieman are re-created to treat the fans. Developers have worked hard on how your gunshot, kicks, punch, stabs or tearing them out will display on screen as gorier than ever. Also, have you noticed the gun with grappling hook?

One of the most interesting features of the game is that you can actually take control of a demon and send it to another player’s campaign to ruin his game or even team up in a Slayer-Hunting party with your enemies as well. Don't hold your breath wielding the crucible facing against the dreaded Hell Knight. Currently, Bethesda still hasn't revealed a release date for Doom Eternal but we know that it is going to launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Doom Eternal E3 Teaser

Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference gave the devil its due by unveiling Doom Eternal, a sequel to 2016's rebooted title.

Many eager gamers have been waiting for a sequel to the best first-person shooter games ever made and we are talking about none other than 2016's Doom game from the newly rebooted series by developer id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks. Eventually, the upcoming title from the franchise titled Doom Eternal was announced today by Bethesda during their E3 2018 conference and for starters, we have a brand-new teaser that is full of breath-taking action.

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 2018 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.

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.
