At QuakeCon this month Bethesda and Id Software finally got round to showcasing the brand new Doom game. The fourth title in the franchise, simply named DOOM, will be released for the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One and the PC, and is planned to run at 60FPS at a 1080P resolution.
Around 10 minutes of gameplay footage of DOOM was shown off at QuakeCon, and within that time there was a lot to take in. It looks as if DOOM will be a very fast paced experience, offering players a great level of agility whilst holding and using weapons.
In fact, DOOM isn't just fast paced like many run n' gun first person shooters currently available; Id software seem to have taken it to the next level. Marty Stratton, the executive producer at Id Software, stated that, "Doom is an origin game, about fast, fast paced combat. It's about amazing guns and blood and gore and gibs. It's the Doom game that we want to make and what you want to play."
DOOM is shaping up to what sounds to be an incredibly adrenaline-pumped experience, and we'll probably see more and more of that leading up to the game's release date.
Talking about release, it's likely DOOM will be released at some point in 2015 for the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One and PC, although unfortunately release details haven't gotten any more specific than that. We'll keep you updated as more information about the upcoming Doom game is revealed.
Gear up for DOOM with a custom new controller with Evil ID or a custom paint job.
