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.
That changed today at QuakeCon 2018. Not only did Bethesda provide more details, but we also got a better look at the gameplay. Doom Eternal is just as brutal and gory as the first game, but there are some noticeable improvements. For example, the environments seem much more open from what we can tell. It seems that harvesting energy from Hell hasn't gone according to plan, and it has accidentally opened portals to Hell on Earth. How players 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 turns up the dial because it offers more weapons like the grappling hook and sword.
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. Doom Eternal is expected to be enhanced for Xbox One X and will probably achieve 4K resolution just like the original.
