Doom Eternal's impressive gameplay reveal rips and tears through everything

After its predecessor received a port for the system, it's great to see the continued support for Nintendo's latest console. Unfortunately, we didn't actually get to see the game in action - we only got a brief teaser, which was heavy on freaky demonic imagery, but light on details. You know, more follow-up DLC from a campaign perspective. Now other players can join your game as demons and try to kill you inside of your (formerly) single-player campaign. Despite the deceiving name which portrays all the good aspects of past titles, Doom Eternal is a proper sequel to the Doom reboot from 2016.

For DOOM Eternal, the slayer is getting an upgraded suit, with an over the shoulder flamethrower and a grappling hook that can be used to zip towards demons or use them as platforms to traverse around the level. Of course, the footage was packed with a variety of terrifying new demon types, including a teased boss encounter.

As expected, DOOM Eternal runs at 60 fps and is looking better than ever, with graphical fidelity that exceeds anything the franchise has done before.

It's worth watching, but a few of the things revealed during the stream confirm that the team certainly aren't in the business of reinventing what made the original Doom so badass, they're simply expanding on it and packing more meat onto the bones.

According to the game's official Twitter account, it'll be released on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch. It was teased that this will just be one of the ways that you'll be able to enjoy the game with friends, so there seems to be other multiplayer ideas in the works. "We're not building a Doom game, we're building a Doom universe".

DOOM Eternal's armor modifications and improvements were shown off on stage.

Doom Eternal has been listed with a release date of 2019 on the Bethesda site.
