At E3 2018, Bethesda surprised gamers by revealing Doom Eternal, the long-awaited sequel to the 2016 Doom reboot. According to the publisher, players will fight against a literal Hell on Earth. Aside from that, no further details were provided.
Luckily, the wait for more information and gameplay won't be too long. Today, the official Doom Twitter account confirmed that a world premiere would take place on August 10, 2018 at QuakeCon. The event will be livestreamed on platforms like Twitch and YouTube. Hopefully Bethesda will announce a release date as well. From what we know, it seems that harvesting energy from Hell hasn't gone according to plan and it has accidentally opened portals to Hell on Earth. How we end up on Earth from Mars is still a mystery.
The Doom reboot took everyone by surprise because not only did it offer smooth 60 FPS gameplay, but it also managed to tell a surprisingly intriguing story. The game garnered positive reviews across the board and proved that old-school "floaty" gameplay does have a place in the modern gaming industry.
Doom Eternal should launch on Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4, and possibly Nintendo Switch. However, it's unclear if this sequel will receive a Nintendo Switch port or when it'll release. Be sure to check back in on August 10 to see the first-ever footage of Doom Eternal. We're expecting it to be shown off on Xbox One X.
