Doom Eternal will be getting its first big update soon, and when it arrives it’ll be adding some interesting new wrinkles to the game. Perhaps the most important of these is so-called ’empowered’ demons that will travel to other players’ campaigns.
After some pointed comments from composer Mick Gordon, id Software has provided its side of the story behind the Doom Eternal soundtrack controversy – and long story short, it doesn’t appear that we’re going to get any more of Gordon’s ripping and tearing beats in future releases for the FPS games, including upcoming Doom Eternal DLC.
Doom Eternal is, at its heart, a game about seeing what demons look like on the inside. Thus, anything that adds a bit of pizzazz to that process is generally welcome, and that’s certainly the case for the upcoming ray tracing mod for Doom Eternal. The mod adds a host of new visual effects to Doom Eternal that mimic the hardware-powered ray traced global illumination you see in RTX-enhanced games, plus some aesthetic pops of its own.
It’s only been about a month since Doom Eternal came ripping and tearing onto our screens, and speedrunners have already found a host of exploits and collision bugs to help rocket them through id Software’s latest demon butchery sim. The development leads sat down to watch the current world-record holder run through Doom Eternal in an astonishing 27 minutes, and the results are pretty hilarious.
One of the more charming storylines in videogaming over the past few months has been the unlikely pairing of the Doom Slayer and Isabelle, the wholesome and helpful Shih Tzu of Animal Crossing fame. Both Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons launched at the same time this past week, and the odd confluence wound up inspiring a ton of surprisingly heartwarming fan art of the Slayer and Isabelle as dear friends. Now, a modder has brought Isabelle to life as a helpful companion in Doom II.
Doom Eternal is here. The FPS game’s long-anticipated launch day has arrived – but it looks like it’s brought more than just, well, Doom Eternal. Eagle-eyed players have noticed a retro-style PC in the Doomslayer’s Fortress hideaway, and on it seems to be (spoiler warning!) not only a fully-playable version of Doom (1993) but also its 1994 sequel, Doom 2.
Doom Eternal is coming, and the early videos and impressions are extremely positive – but you, the pragmatically cautious gamer that you are, want to wait for reviews before making your final decision. Worry not! Our Doom Eternal review is on the way, and the embargo will lift well before the Doom Eternal release date on March 20.
