"Killing bad-ass demons with big guns in unbelievable places". In other words, it very much looks like a Doom game.

The keynote will also feature Rage 2 - an upcoming first-person shooter by Avalanche games in collaboration with id software along with new updates and announcements for Elder-Scrolls Online & Quake Champions.

The rebooted Doom released in 2016 was a critical triumph, an impeccably designed balance of shooting and melee, based on the idea that video game gunfights are more exciting when you need to keep moving and can't just hang back and shoot from cover.

The demo offers a few glances at returning weapons, like the iconic double barrel shotgun, as well as new additions to the arsenal, like an automatic chain shotgun and a new type of energy weapon.

"You're gonna love what you can do with that thing", Martin said. The overwhelming success of that effort has only amplified anticipation for the sequel, Doom Eternal.


Of course, the coolest enemies deserve the coolest deaths. For now, rest easy knowing you'll be able to slaughter plenty more demons in plenty more ways wherever you go.

DOOM Eternal's armor modifications and improvements were shown off on stage. Id hasn't said whether Doom Eternal will have a traditional multiplayer mode like Doom 2016 did, but honestly, this sounds a lot better.

Multiplayer is hitting Doom Eternal in multiple forms.

Bethesda has announced that DOOM Eternal is coming to the Nintendo Switch, with Panic Button - the studio that ported DOOM and Wolfenstein II - handling conversion duties.
