This year at QuakeCon 2018 Bethesda had quite a bit to show during their presentation. Within their keynote, they unveiled some free-to-play news for Quake Champions, showed off an in depth look at RAGE 2, and debuted the launch trailer for ESO: Wolfhunter. But what seemed to be one of their biggest highlights of the show was the world premiere of gameplay for the publisher’s upcoming title DOOM Eternal. DOOM Eternal was initially revealed back during Bethesda’s E3 2018 press conference.
They showed a teaser trailer revealing the project, however, not much was said about the project up until this point. Fans in attendance at the publisher’s QuakeCon presentation got a firsthand look at some new concept art for the Slayer that shows the hero’s new additions to his armor. They also showed off a few new weapons as well as the demons that the players will be using them on. They also commented that players will physically be able to see their progress of an enemies demise as their bodies will deteriorate or be destroyed as they are shot down.
The studio used the term “destructible demons” to describe this feature. The demo showed off the new weapons in action along with some updated enemies and some new one all together. The Slayer has not only gotten some new attachments to his armor but some brutal new finish animations along with it. This go around id Software made it necessary that The Slayer for this Sequel was the strongest one ever. DOOM Eternal isn’t set to release until sometime next year but fans already have a lot to look forward to in this upcoming sequel. The game’s official description reads:
” DOOM Eternal™ is the direct sequel to the award-winning and best-selling DOOM (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.
