The new Doom game will be revealed in about a month, and today a number of screenshots from the cancelled version of Doom 4 got revealed.
THANK GOD lol
Just want to thank another game company for completely wasting time and money. Goes to show you why this crap was not shown at Quake Con. Many may disagree but Doom 4 needs to be given to Cliffy B. as he is a developer that currently understands what Doom is all about and knows how it should be done. R.I.P. to another classic,historic,and genre defining franchise that made video games what they are today
uhh this is old cancelled doom footage not the new Doom game being shown at E3.
Uhhhhh no. Cliffy B can stay the he'll away from Doom and ANY future AAA title. That guy has lost touch with the gaming industry.
Umm cliffy b stop caring the second GeoW made it big, I remember seeing interviews with him pre GeoW release and then a year later completely different completely douche showing up in a lambo and leather jacket had a Dane cook smug to him
Maybe Cliffy B would be good for the multiplayer side of DOOM. But i would love to see John Romero and Sandy Pederson make twisted non linear levels for the new DOOM game . But of course neither would happen . Now that the Wolfenstein New Order DLC OLD BLOOD is done . I would love see Machine Games help ID SOFTWARE finish the new DOOM game . They both work under the ZENIMAX/BETHESDA umbrella . Yeah, it would be awesome if they just added BRUTAL DOOM as a bonus when you buy the new DOOM game . It has never been available on consoles .
@Defender I completely agree. Machine Games knows what they're doing.
Ugh, Cliffy B is the LAST person I want touching a classic franchise. Unreal Tournament says hello to how badly he Fs things up. This is not the new Doom, this was a nightmare that deserved to be cancelled. New Doom is going to be like Classic Doom which is amazing in and of itself.
This screenshots has that Gears of War look. One would think Cliffy B was involved.
This looks like a movie.... doom player don't want a movie wtf... Doom is about shooting and surviving... ummmm hell. not a bunch of sad face people, that are render pretty well. Im really getting tired of video games becoming an indie movie dumping ground. if you didn't make the ip leave it along.
Ummmm your joking right cause a portal opening on earth sounds a hell of a lot better than when we get another lame ass portal on Mars...Like we need another sequel like Doom 3 that is basically just the first 2 games retold with pretty graphics...Oh but wait people like to cry when anyone tries something different, we really do need more of that generic as hell Doom set on generic Mars AGAIN
Yes, Doom 3 was a remake of the first Doom. Doom 2 takes place on Earth however, not Mars, so Doom 4 is technically a remake of Doom 2. On a side note, Rage was not only a graphics experiment, but an experiment in open world gaming for Id. If Doom 4 is able to eliminate the issues that held back Rage from being a huge success, it will be fantastic when it ships.
Gross... I hope Doom 4 will be like Brutal Doom https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I love Brutal Doom, the team who worked on it did something amazing that I though wasn't possible, they were able to improve the original game! I know saying that is blasphemous but the people who’ve played it know that it’s true, even John Romero has given them praise. Here's a link to the Brutal Doom site: http://www.moddb.com/mods/b...
Looks like CoD: Apocalypse.
haha damn! I was actually just thinking...looks like a COD game...had to look at the comments to see if anyone else thought that! Put a smile on my face!
Didn't look bad, looks pretty good actually (at least the CGI stills did), but it didn't "feel" like Doom. Lets see what ID has up their sleeves this E3.
wow that looks like crap
I hope what ever comes out is good.. have waited too long for this game O.t: WTH was this coming out for mobile..?
There was a mobile version of Rage for IOS (which was supposed to demonstrate how well mobile can handle games with the IDtech 5) so I guess they had similar intentions with this one.
Looks like a poor imitation of the Metro series.
Reminds me of 'Rage' and what is Michael Fassbender doing in that..
Here's a super quick teaser of the NEW 'Doom' https://www.youtube.com/wat...
That looks frikkin awesome can't wait to see it in full at the reveal on June 14. Wonder if my doom 4 beta key will ever activate from buying wolfenstein
the scream and the animation of the Revenant demon are intensely expressive. good job id, it's an excellent teaser successfully drags you into the hellish atmosphere of DOOM. *replay for the nth time..*
Oh wow, never knew 3 seconds could be so satisfying.
Yeah that looks nothing like DOOM. Glad they scrapped the original project. Looks like CoD, Metro, and a pinch of Rage.
Hopefully someone else can use this concept for a different game, Hell on earth sounds like an interesting concept, and playing a game as the apocalypse is happening instead of after is also a breath of fresh air.
Looks like your typical Call of Duty game, glad they scrapped that and started over.
The 5th picture down looks like the Governor...also, the cars look horrendous. Thankfully, that 9 second clip has more promise than this version did.
I think DOOM should be left alone to live happily ever after.
Looks like a darker, overcast version of Rage. Hard to tell how well the the demons would have fit in seeing as though there were none in the screenshots. Maybe they'll re-use these assets for something. Hard to believe all that work is just gonna be dumped.
Looks like a swell game, that i would play. But it doesnt look like something i would buy for the 'Doom" experience.
while there isn't anything aesthetically wrong with what is being shown, it doesn't look anything like DOOM. In fact, you'd need the damned logo to be watermarked on each image to even let us know that it is in fact an iteration of the DOOM franchise. Nothing here is coherent. Just a bunch of rag tag warriors in a desert wasteland with Killzone style weaponry. While that might not sound like the MOST uninteresting thing you've ever heard, it doesn't scream "big ass guns against demons from hell". I am profoundly annoyed the game got past even initial concept art, knowing just how far off the mark they were. I get it. Profit off the brand name, and call the game a "re imagining" and see what happens. This is what happens. I am just glad they had the good sense to go back to what is expected of the franchise. We haven't had a good DOOM game in more then a decade. Either you stick with what made the game good to begin with or you craft a brand new IP and (gasp!) try to sell the game on its own merits and not piss off the dedicated fanbase of such franchises.
Gosh people are so quick to react and make judgement, let alone on 37sec clip of cutscene type footage. DOOM2 was set on Earth, if you were to remake it for today why would it not just look like a post-apocalyptic city? Any deviance to the original look is merely because the original was limited by technology to realize the scope of DOOM2. Digressing, what's the point of judging it based on so scarce information, if you only played the first hour of DOOM3 you would think nothing resembled DOOM1, except it was all there at the end.
^totally agreed... all this negative reaction to the canceled version because its not 'doom'...?...seriously ...what? Doom 3 released 11 years ago...and it sucked...and its expansion sucked...BFG edition still mostly sucked, but it at least removed the laughably bad mechanic of having to hold a flashlight independently of a weapon to 'promote terror'... whatever that cancelled thing could of been...i almost guarantee it wouldn't have been the worst game in the franchise...because Doom 3 will hold that crown no matter what is released... lastly, there is no current 'theme' or 'look' to Doom as a franchise...or even a real quantifiable play style native to the series...again, because of Doom 3...the originals are 100% classic ACTION games...Doom 3 was a terrible almost survival horror game...It was like a tech demo for Dead Space, of which was better in every single possible way...so this cancelled version, and new version, can literally be anything...because there hasn't been any consistency with the franchise in over a decade...
I can not wait for the new DOOM game to come out . Let us be real here . DOOM 1 and 2 will never ever be topped ! Doom 3 was pretty good , but missing the big outdoor areas and twisted, maze like level design and secret areas . My guess is the DOOM will be released in October of 2015 or spring of2016.
That is just terrible and looks nothing like DOOM so glad it was cancelled anyway I cannot wait for the beta then the retail game!
Here's the footage http://www.allgamesbeta.com...
the screenshots dont make it look good but that video makes it look fun.
To be honest, You could throw footage of any game up there, toss in the Doom 3 menu music and never know the difference. There wasn't a single thing identifiable with the doom franchise in the video.
I don't care about story when it comes to Doom. I just want a return to the twitchy gameplay and unrealistic amounts of gore.
This looked phenominal, you guys are on crack.
Graphically speaking, yes it does look quite good. However, it also looks generic af and nothing like Doom.
'nothing like Doom'... because this: http://xboxlivemedia.ign.co... and this: http://www.canalgame.com/da... are doom? that cancelled thing looked 1000x more interesting than anything Doom 3 did, which was in not in a single way similar to any of the original games...other than #hell
Hmm, screen shots don't look bad per say, just doesn't look like Doom.
How is that even remotely DOOM-like?
Indeed it looked like nothing to DOOM about. Let's see the reveal at E3 and finally see how it changed.
I find it a bit saddening that people even talk much about Doom any more. The first is not necessarily the best (and anyway Wolfenstein came out slightly before it). Quake and Quake 2 were far superior. Quake 3 was multiplayer only and great. It was only with Quake 4 that I lost interest- it just looked like Doom. Quake was absolutely revolutionary. The first game was all about huge gothic castles with lava pits set in space. It was the very first series I played that literally got 'medieval' on my ass in such an expansive 3D world. I wish that they had always stuck with the medieval theme. Quake 3 did to some extent but the original Quake was very special.
I remember playing the first two Doom games and loving how hard they were. Very few games have the tension and rawness that Doom excelled in. I still have the original Doom boxes and manuals with the floppies and later re-released CD discs and even though I can play the original Doom and mods on my PS3 and new PC, I cherish the memories playing Doom way back then when games were HARD! I am glad this version of Doom 4 was not released. The devs should take a good look at the first two and figure out what made them so good and give us more of that! I want a shooter that scares me witless!
