We knew seen the Eternal marketing hard at work for this year's show. Now, we've got a trailer -- and a release date.was going to really highlight the demon obliterating antics of Doom sequel, Doom Eternal, and we've already
A 16 second teaser trailer was unveiled on June 6 which showcased Doomguy wielding a chainsaw and a big ol' red chainsaw. The staple demon-slaying type operation Doom is renowned for. The new trailer showcases that operation and is filled with tons of blood and Doomguy -- The Slayer -- moving at lightning quick speed.
You can watch the first of a few trailers below:
At Bethesda's presentation, it felt as though they just unleashed trailer after trailer of pure mayhem. My poor brain is still recovering. I'm too old for a video game this frantic. The pace is tremendous -- it's a Doom game after all -- but everything sincerely felt cranked up a notch. The single player demo went through what can only be described an insane orgy of violence, before ending with a boss battle tease. Very good stuff.
Then there was the multiplayer reveal, which was interesting enough. Perhaps the most exciting part: a new mode called "Battlemode" where two people can face off against one slayer and strategise against them. It's essentially a 2 v 1 mode where demons strategise to take down a regular player. Bethesda are referring to it as a battle between "strategy" and "skill". Very interesting.
