DOOM (4) @QuakeCon 2014

Today marks the first day of this year’s QuakeCon event. The long awaited DOOM (4) reveal is supposedly going to be tonight at 7:00 p.m. EST. Although exclusive for attendees only, it’s basically a given that it’ll show up on the internet. I’m very excited; wish I could be there too! Below is the only material that DOOM fans have been shown. I’ll keep this topic updated as news becomes available.

The quick and dirty IGN review of the still unreleased gameplay trailer. Of note:

  • Fast-paced combat against multiple enemies at once - Doom 3 this ain’t.
  • Classic Doom weapons, including the fan-favorite double-barrell shotgun
    return. Plasma rifle, rocket launcher, and the good old chainsaw were
    also shown off.
  • Old school mechanics. No reloading your clip, hold as many weapons as you want, health and ammo pick-ups etc. NO REGENERATING HEALTH.

That’s all I needed to hear to secure my pre-order.

I imagine pre-order purchasing will be on hold awhile longer. Instead, you may be interested in trying to find a beta code for yourself.

An honest feeling turns out to what should have been a prayer and nothing more. The “DOOM room” must have been on guard! It’s unfortunate for the vast majority of fans who couldn’t attend but I do understand why they opted to make it a private showing. Seemingly enough, the game won’t be released anytime soon! I was thinking it’d be coming at year’s end like the first title but now I’m heavily doubting such optimism. A quick bit of excitement was finding out that id Software hired their new lead rendering programmer; from Crytek no less. Here’s a nicely written follow up explaining how the reveal played out.
