Is DOOM Returning To It’s Roots?

Posted on June 10, 2014 by Les Major

Sure, it’s just a teaser trailer, but a lot of people are more excited than ever for the upcoming new DOOM game. First off, is that the cyber demon from the original DOOM game in the image above? We sure hope so! Game reboots are great and all, but for us classic gamers, it’s great to see nods to the content we grew up with. It brings our fond memories into glorious new graphics for a whole new generation! Read on to take a look at the video that’s got us excited!

I played DOOM 3, but I can’t remember if this guy was in it. Perhaps he was a bit different. That was the thing I found distracting about DOOM 3, was the changes to the enemies. The Imps for example. I miss those spikey, leathery skinned beasts from the original DOOM titles. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed DOOM 3. I’m just excited by the potential for this to be more of a reference to the original games. Details have been all over the place from what I’ve seen, from this being a DOOM 3 sequel, to it being a reboot of DOOM 2. I’ll have to brush up on the current details, but either way, I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out. Especially after seeing what has been done with the Wolfenstein series.

Take a look at the new DOOM teaser below.
