To celebrate the new reveal at QuakeCon, Bethesda released a new press kit with new screenshots, details, and artwork of the upcoming first-person shooter DOOM Eternal.
"As the Slayer, allow real players to invade your campaign as demons for a dramatic and unpredictable twist anytime you’re playing the campaign" I'm guessing you can turn this off?
I mean, unless you *have* to have an internet connection then you have to be able to go offline and play without it.
Doom Souls Eternal
Similar to Dark Souls game there will probably be an offline mode.
I’m guessing this will be very interesting......
This is amazing!!!!! I miss this about DS! The original was sooo good because you could be invaded. And sometimes ppl would bring gifts for you and send you in treasure hunts. I really hope you can interact in some way other than just invading to kill. One of my favorite features in any game, be it DS or Dragon’s Dogma is the ability to give gifts to other ppl, leave notes etc!
They mentioned on stage being able to play without the feature on.
They said it's optional.
They said in the presentation you can play it with players allowed to invade or just by yourself, so it looks like you can turn of invasions.
Yes, they said you may turn it off.
I'm get a lot of flack for this but I was unimpressed visually with Doom Eternal, don't get me wrong the core gameplay still looks amazing but it looks like an expansion as opposed to a true sequel.
New enemies, new weapons, new upgrades, new engine and improved visuals, Doom Eternal looks like a sequel to me.
They can't push graphics too much, game has to run at 60 FPS and current gen consoles are already maxed out.
And what is a sequel to you then? Something completely different?
"We shall call our new game 'NOT DOOM!' "
When I saw the trailers initially, I couldn't tell if it was dlc or a sequel, but I'll happily take a sequel. It sounds like they're optimising the engine more, I already get 144hz at 1440p, maxed out details, it's hard to believe it would get any better than that.
I did notice few improvements i.e. in lighting and shadowing but i expected a bit more attention to details. One of the things i wish one day devs can achieve effortlessly is not to make the corpses disappear or at least leave some remains, this adds to the experience. In Doom, the Arch Vile resurrect demons and without any remains it will look like summoning when he does. I can imagine how visually wonderful and terrifying to see carcasses reassemble around you when resurrected. Anyway, Doom is one of the most important games in my gaming life and i can't wait to go back its Holly Hell!
Well good thing that they seem to be getting & keeping the most important aspects to the game to remain amazing then eh? 😉
Yikes this could get annoying if someone or multiple people join your game as some crafty imps and shoot you with fireballs from a distance.
Would it benefit any different if the ai did that?
You can turn that feature off.
yeah, god forbid we actually have to use strategy to defeat the enemies instead of just remembering patterns.
Wow some people are dense...I know you can turn off the feature...I was just stating that if you didn't and you got some guys who wanted to troll you for awhile and they could be imps it could be annoying. They could hit and run you for an entire level. I wasn't saying anything negative about the game or anything. People troll like crazy in the Souls games and I was just stating one way they could do it in Doom. @Frosty...have you ever played Doom? What strategy is involved besides running around and killing enemies...very little...
I thought doom flopped ? ... empty servers etc.
The multiplayer of Doom (2016) died fast as it had very poor player retention. However,Doom (2016) sold well overall.
Single player was fantastic, I hardly got any multi player matches so I gave up earlier on. As far as I'm concerned, Doom was a top tier modernisation of an old game.
Um it’s known for the single player...
This game looks so amazing. I cannot wait to get it.
Some elements have me a little concerned. Like, what incentive is there for invading other players? I hope there isn't an xp system or anything like that because I have no interest in playing this online. Not sure how I feel about extra lives either. If they're just an extra reward for exploration that revives you immediately upon death then that's cool, but I hope they're not ditching traditional checkpoints. Besides that, I loved everything I saw. So badass that it almost brought a tear to my eye.
40GB install for switch TBA
as costs come down we should see devs start using larger cartridges. Sucks that they are only using 16GB carts when they can easily go up to 64GB to save us on additional downloads.
This is true. It costs too much for them to use higher capacity carts from ive read. Thats why a lot of publishers have you download large portions of the game into storage. Some (like capcom) are cheap asses on top of it using the cheapest option with the lowest capacity. Mega man collections, Resident evil revelations. etc. Hell, even nintendo cheaped out with bayonetta out here in the US. Japan got two carts but we got stuck having to download one of the games defeating the purpose of getting a physical copy.
That could suck but then again its on the switch have to give it to them from bringing it to the switch as well as the other two. Hope it sells well on the switch to if the game is good which looks to build on the original so it should be.
It doesnt matter to me. Ill get it just to have another handheld doom game. If its relegated to MP being what you have to download, ill be happy. I dont really play online w the switch.
Rip and Tear Baby....
This game is looking freaking sweet.
Looks like I need to hurry up & get the first one checked off the to do list. Not going to lie, wasn't exactly excited or hyped for the trailer, but damn. It looks like it's going to be a really good time!
Based on those pictures, the graphics certainly look better this go around.
this time it'll be on the switch from launch? that is great if true
