New DOOM Details from QuakeCon

Today at QuakeCon bethesda took to the stage to give us more details about their upcoming game DOOM. First interesting factoid is that is in fact called DOOM and not DOOM 4, it will run on idTech 6 at 1080p and 60fps on Pc, Ps4 and Xbox One.

Many people were hopeful that a twitch livestream would allow fans to see the demos and presentation however the stream was cut as the DOOM                                                                                            presentation began. Heres what we know however.


Two demos were shown running on Pc. Big parts of the game was the blood and gore which was to be expected. Melee is now a thing and looks quite spectacular. One attacking move is to stun an enemy with your shot then smash in their face with your foot. This then drops a health boost. Health does not appear to regenerate, at least on the difficulty setting the demos were on. The main focus of DOOM will be fast paced run and gun like the way we remember DOOM.


The presentation focused on combat showing off weapons like chainsaws and shotguns but it was also mentioned that ‘It’s an origin game, reimagining everything about the originals.” The game will be set on Mars and the UAC are involved.

Security at the event was tight so don’t expect to see many phone videos of the gameplay demos.
