The demons have moved away from Mars to your home planet and it's up to a much more hardened version of The Doom Slayer to send them back to the bowels of Hell. The game will be shown off during Bethesda's QuakeCon 2018 keynote, which gets underway from 11am CDT. Developed by id Software, DOOM Eternal brings the ultimate combination of speed and power with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat. "Everything you saw, that's pushing the envelope", Stratton explained. The demons are more elaborate, your guns are more malevolent and the worlds are, according to the developers, 10 times more detailed in terms of geometrics and texture fidelity than the last DOOM game. It seems like Vulcan API is really letting the devs run wild with the graphical prowess as well as allowing scaling down for less powerful machines.

Yu can watch some of the Doom Eternal gameplay above, and the game itself will be releasing apparently on December 28 for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. This wasn't a small trailer either, in-fact, we were treated to a massive on-stage deep dive, going over new weapons, new enemies, the Slayer's new armour, new mechanics and new environments that we'll be exploring during the campaign.

A ton of stuff is new to Doom Eternal.

The studio also pledged the campaign won't unfold only on Earth, showing off a bit of fight footage from Martian moon Phobos to round out the demo. There was a claw of some kind that dug into surfaces, but we'll have to wait for more information in the near future. So if you're not a fan of gore then don't hit play, but for the rest of you tell us if you enjoy what you see.

There's a lot to be excited about, but DOOM Eternal doesn't have a release date yet.

KitGuru Says: DOOM Eternal is looking excellent. Thankfully, Bethesda promises additional Doom Eternal news soon so it shouldn't be long before we get more information. We'll report on it as soon as it does.
