The first details regarding Doom have been revealed during Quake Con 2014.
ID Software recently unveiled their first person shooter – originally titled Doom 4 but later changed to Doom -during the annual convention.
According to IGN, the title will be set on Mars, outside a UAC research facility being invaded by the forces of Hell, including Hellknights, Cyber Demons, Revenants, Mancubii and other classic monsters.
It will feature fast-paced combat against multiple enemies, classic Doom weapons, including the fan-favorite double-barrel shotgun return, and is powered by IdTech6.
Also included is an alternate fire mode for the combat shotgun, close range executions, jetpacks for Revenants, teleporting enemies, cutscene death scenes and old school mechanics – no reloading clips, numerous weapons, health and ammo pick-ups and no generating health.
ID say they are “commited” to 1080p at 60 frames-per-second.
The next installment in the classicial Doom series was first announced back in 2008 but has been in development hell for years before production finally began in 2011.
It will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
