DOOM Launch Trailer Asks Us To Fight Like Hell

Posted on May 5, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

We didn’t really have a good idea about what DOOM’s single player would be like, outside of the DOOM single player demos from last year’s E3. That all changed with the recent 2 hour live-stream hosted by Bethesda where we learned new details like the fact that sometimes, especially on custom Snap-map game types enemies will fight amongst themselves before getting to you. Some fans have described the gameplay as “fairly large open sections with enemies sprinkled into them”, and after watching a lot of single-player footage I’m in agreement. This might feel like a bit of a step back, especially since games like Call of Duty have had us expecting huge set-pieces, but it looks like the new DOOM is trying to take things back to basics.

The new DOOM single-player launch trailer doesn’t give us much in the way of story – outside of the fact that the player character is “the only flesh to walk between this world and theirs (presumably Earth)”. Then again, the original DOOM titles weren’t exactly known for their stories – you were basically one marine versus several levels of demons.

DOOM releases on May 13th for PS4, Xbox and Windows PC.

Bethesda Releases Brief Doom Teaser Trailer

Posted on May 18, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Bethesda Game Studios in collaboration with id Software have released a very brief 15 second gameplay trailer to promote their upcoming Doom reboot. The trailer promises that we will get more information at Bethesda’s E3 Press conference on June 14th.

Gameplay for Doom was first shown to the public at last year’s QuakeCon but the publisher did not allow anyone to record what was shown. According to reports the game goes back to its early 90s FPS roots complete with strafing, jetpacks and of course the awesomely overpowered B.F.G 9000. Apparently the developers have also incorporated finishing moves into some enemy encounters. The player is able to eviscerate their opponent by ripping off their jaw, tearing out their heart and other gruesome fatalities.

No release date for Doom has been given but considering it is getting a large presence at Bethesda’s E3 press conference a late 2015 / early 2016release date isn’t out of the question. Doom will be available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Posted on March 24, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Bethesda Softworks may have cancelled Human Head’s upcoming Prey 2. The sequel to 2006’s Prey painted a very picture than its predecessor. In Prey 2 Players take the role of a human Air Marital turned bounty hunter on stranded on alien world.

As GameTrailers points out this isn’t the first bump on the road to going gold for Human Head Studios. The publisher apparently cancelled the dev’s scheduled 3 part talk earlier this month’s Game’s Development Conference in San Francisco.Read More
