Doom Eternal is probably one of the most anticipated games of 2019, and now it has a release date. During Bethesda's E3 2019 conference, the company announced the next entry in the long-running franchise will arrive on November 22.

Along with the release date, Bethesda showed off a couple of new trailers for Doom Eternal, offering a look at the game's story and gameplay. From the looks of things, players will not only be fighting the forces of hell, but may provoke "the heavens' wrath" as well. We'll surely learn much more as Doom Eternal's release nears, but the story trailer offers a particularly tantalizing look at what's in store.

On the multiplayer front, Bethesda promised some interesting new innovations are to come as well. We'll get a closer look at what Doom Eternal has for fans of the "Battlemode" multiplayer experience at Quakecon 2019.

Finally, as if the new trailers and release date weren't enough, Doom Eternal will also be available in a collector's edition that includes a wearable Doom Slayer helmet, a lore book, a lithograph, and more.

Doom Eternal is currently up for preorder for $50 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (regularly $60).

  • Something tells me they had this plot written down when working on Doom (2016).
    If you start a new game, you'll hear the exact same voice speaking, as the one in the trailer for Doom Eternal when this "heavenly" figure is revealed, warning of the consequences of his actions. You can hear the same voice just before the protagonist wakes up. It could be, that they just decided to use the same voice actor, but it could also be deliberate 😉 Intriguing plot details indeed.
  • It wouldn't surprise me, everything is written now with the intention of being a series, so I'm sure they have a basic outline of how they want the overall arc to go.
