The Friday the 13th of DOOM: Bethesda's Beginning of Hell



From the big guns that published Fallout  and The Elder Scrolls comes an upcoming familiar first-player shooter (FPS) game, DOOM. Bethesda has teamed up with id Software to develop an upgraded version based off the original Doom series.

As if the producers couldn't make it scarier, the game is set to be released on Friday the 13th of May this year and will be released on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.


Features
It is said to boast of better FPS, upgraded visuals, intense fast paced movement and a large variety of guns. Although players have a range of guns to choose from, melee attacks can also be used to tear apart demons. Some added gameplay features include picking up ammo through exploring instead of reloading and also health packs which can be obtained from killing demons. 

The story behind the game is simple, you, as the final man standing, must protect the world against demons that have overtaken the Union Aerospace Corporation's research facility in Mars. It's to kill or be killed.The producers did not place a lot of emphasis on the story line of the game as it was not their main focus.


SNAPMAP

The game also has a new feature which allows players to create user-generated content for different mods of the game. It is said to be easy to use and map pieces can be created at ease. 

Gameplay

 


Players are given the choice of either single-player or multiplayer modes with friends to storm through the gates of hell together. According to sources, the game received positive reviews during E3 2015 and many awards. However, there were some critics that highlighted the extreme violence of the game. Even Pete Hines from Bethesda has warned: 

"If you're not into violent, bloody games... Doom's probably not a game for you."


Future plans

A premium collectors edition of DOOM is also said to be planned by Bethesda and will include a 12" collector's statue of the Revenant (view main picture above). Players can pre-order it at participating retailers at $119.99, which may be a steep price for some. 

However, both the pre-orders for the standard and collectors edition will receive the Demon Multiplayer Pack which will include a unique demon armor, Hack Modules, and a one-time multiplayer consumable item.

Continue gaming strong!
