We are here today to talk about Doom, originally called Doom 4, an upcoming first person shooter video game developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks, set to be released on 13 May 2016, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The game will be a reboot of Doom series and the first major title release in the series since Doom 3 in 2004. The name Doom means so much for many gamers, for some might had been the introduction into FPS action, with all the palpable weapons, scary enemies and intricate environment. For others, it opened the thrill of player vs player death-match, or cooperative demon slaying, but whether or not you`ve played the original games, this new version of Doom looks really exciting. It is just as good, speedy and smart as its predecessors, with all the good presentation and polish that only a big budget game can deliver.
The game will feature a large arsenal of weapons, which can be collected and switched between during the game. Many classic weapons will make a return in the new release, in addition, melee weapons such as chainsaws will be also introduced in game. In addition to that many enemies from the original games like the Renevant, Mancubus and Cyberdemon will also return, some of them being redesigned while some will remain the same. As the game moving system puts accent of momentum and speed, players will be able to perform a lot of movements like sprints and double jumps.
The combat system will also feature a system called push forward combat, which discourages players from taking cover or resting to regain health, as a result of this game will not feature any cover mechanic or health regeneration system. But don`t worry you won`t run out of health too fast as players will be able to pick`up health and armor power ups scattered around levels as well as kill enemies to regain health. A new and impressive mechanic that will be introduced in game is the melee execution system, that allows players to perform melee take-down actions once they did enough damage to enemies. Talking about game modes, beside a rather good campaign mode the game will feature several multiplayer modes such as death-match, domination, freeze tag and clan arena.
Overall the game looks really good, and same as a lot of people I can`t wait for the release to get the full version of the game, so everyone should give the game a shot. Let’s go hunt some demons!
