The primary setting for Doom Eternal is the Earth, invaded by demons post 2016’s Doom. As a sequel to 2016’s Doom, the game includes a lot of demon already encountered in the previous game some of which include: Cyberdemon, Marauder, and Arachnotron. From the first person perspective, you assume the role of Doom Slayer fighting the demonic forces to save the human race.
In the launch trailer at E3, we saw that the character combats the forces of Hell at diverse locations such as under the fire blazing sky, and shooting arenas. For this, the Doom Slayer has been upgraded to easily counter enemies. The new Doom slayer moves faster and can easily maneuver physical acts such as jumping off long distances and wall climbing. The Meat Hook feature will allow it to slingshot towards enemies and clench on to different places. Using the shoulder mounted cannon that launch fire grenades and burst of flames, you can easily burn down the demons. Weapon modification is picked up from previous version.
The new feature in the game allows you to collect extra lives to be utilized in re-spawning Doom Slayer in the exact location where it died. In case there are no additional lives left, the Slayer will be respawned at the nearest checkpoint. The game’s Battle Mode has introduced a new Multiplayer 2 vs 1 experience, unlike the previous one.
Get ready to defend Earth as Hell breaks loose. You find yourself hooked on to this game, if you are a fan of gory and unmerciful gameplay. Dooms Eternal launching on March 20th 2020, is available for pre order now.
