Well, you know, it's a PC-oriented franchise, so of course you have to wait ten thousand years for a sequel.
…oh, calm down. You know it's true. 😉
Anyway, after many years of waiting, the long-awaited fourth Doom entry has been officially unveiled. In fact, it's just called "Doom" (no 4), kinda like when Crystal Dynamics rebooted "Tomb Raider."
Developer id Software showed off the new game at this year's QuakeCon conference, and it will focus on fast-paced combat and takes place on Mars. We hear that combat is especially brutal and there will be plenty of up-close-and-personal confrontations as well. Players can expect a large arsenal, all of which can be carried at the same time (ala the recently released Wolfenstein: The New Order ). Speaking of the latter title, if you purchased it, you're automatically in the beta for Doom .
Technically, the new project was announced back in 2008 as "Doom 4," but then publisher Bethesda announced three years later that the project had been scrapped. This new effort will unsurprisingly come to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and thanks to the powerful id Tech 6 engine, we'll get 1080p HD and 60 frames per second. Can't wait to learn more!
