New Doom Movie in Development

Universal Pictures is working on a brand-new Doom movie adaptation and they already signed up actress/singer Nina Bergman for the project. The name needs no introduction at this point as if you do not know it as one of the best first-person shooter games that is ever made then you might know it as another disastrous video game movie from 2005 that starred WWE megastar Dwayne Johnson (Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and Karl Urban (Dredd, Thor: Ragnarok).

The story of Doom is about a marine, who goes by the name "Doomguy" or "Doomslayer" to gamers, who finds himself on Mars slaying hordes of demons pouring in through a gate to Hell. 2016 marks the release of fourth and latest installment of the series from id Software as a reboot and earned critical acclaim for its fast-paced combat system. The movie version however, dropped the idea of demons coming from Hell and showed scientists accidentally created monsters during experiment on Mars.

Despite having a big-named Hollywood superstar like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, the movie failed badly because of a poorly written script that has all the cast members just wandering around the Mars facility for a huge chunk of its entirety while they look for those mutated creatures. All of these led the film to follow a disastrous box-office score and tons of negative reviews. Though there were rumors about Universal considering a reboot for Doom but no official statements were made.

After Nina Bergman recently Tweeted out about her involvement into the next “Doom” movie, it become sort of official. She didn't mention any other details of whoever is involved in cast alongside her except for her own involvement.

When some fans expressed their concern about the script of new adaption, she assured that this time, they have a much better script. Although, Dwayne's involvement to 2005's Doom movie is always punned, he recently is breaking the "video game curse" with his recent Rampage, which is also an adaptation of a 1986 arcade game of the same name that is earning critical and commercial success these days. It even has a 50% score in review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, which is pretty high for the genre.

Looks like video game movies are coming back to take their rightful place in Hollywood from this year. The Tomb Raider reboot movie starring actress Alicia Vikander is doing pretty good. A film on Ubisoft’s The Division featuring actor Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain has hired David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2) as director. We are hopeful that the new Doom movie will perform better and won't screw up if it takes inspiration from their 2016 game.

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.

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.

This may seem like a teleportation movement in the base at times.

Doom's Nintendo Switch Release Date

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. Major game titles like Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was included in that list. Hopefully other popular titles like Dishonored and The Evil Within will join the race in the future too.

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.

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.
