Bethesda Softworks has made a splash at this year’s QuakeCon with a handful of their titles being presented. Among the list is DOOM Eternal with developer id Software taking the stage for the first gameplay reveal. In an official announcement released by Bethesda, it has been confirmed that the sequel to DOOM (2016) is coming to Nintendo Switch, although no specific release date has been announced and whether or not it will release day & date with the other platforms.
Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power as you rip-and-tear your way across dimensions with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat. Powered by idTech 7 and set to an all-new pulse-pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, DOOM Eternal puts you in control of the unstoppable DOOM Slayer as you blow apart new and classic demons with powerful weapons in unbelievable and never-before-seen worlds.
As with the port-handling for DOOM (2016) and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus efficiently done for Nintendo Switch, Panic Button is on-board for DOOM Eternal as well. Bethesda’s support for the Nintendo Switch has been outstanding and to continue that with one of their biggest titles yet to be released shows that their publishing is on point. Please take a look at the DOOM Eternal live gameplay reveal down below.
- Slayer 2.0
Unleash the overwhelming power of the DOOM Slayer. With updated armor and an arsenal of new and improved equipment, including a shoulder-mounted cannon with flamethrower, extendable blade, and a new dash ability, you’re faster and deadlier than ever. Destroy every demon in your path with an upgraded array of guns and mods, including the Super Shotgun’s new Meat Hook attachment to pull yourself point blank with the faces of hell.
- Rip More, Tear More
Obliterate more demons than ever before, each with their own attacks and abilities. Fan-favorite classics such as the Pain Elemental, Archvile, and Arachnotron make their return, while a horde of totally-new demons join the roster including the DOOM Hunter and corrupted Marauders. DOOM Eternal’s “destructible demons” system takes your power fantasy to new levels by ensuring that every trigger pull has never felt better.
- All-new Invasion
As the Slayer, allow real players to invade your campaign as demons for a dramatic and unpredictable twist anytime you’re playing the campaign. Or join the ranks of the damned yourself as you become a demon and invade a friend or other player’s campaign. Invade others either by yourself or with another player, as part of a hunting party, to give the Slayer a true taste of Hell.
- We’re Not on Mars Anymore
Rip and tear across epic, never-before-seen worlds. Witness the tumbling skyscrapers of Hell on Earth; battle through an invasion of the mammoth BFG 10,000 on Phobos; and discover the ancient secrets of the DOOM universe. With idTech7, every environment is brought to life in unprecedented detail.
