Pick any game that has either seen a remake, or a sequel released many years later. In most cases the results are quite impressive. This is true also of Doom Eternal.
Being able to relive the action and adventure that you experienced long ago, only this time with exceptional attention to detail, and eye-popping graphics is something truly special. When you apply that to the Doom franchise we see some horrific upgrades, terrifying monsters, and intense gameplay. It feels like we are worlds away from where this franchise first started.
The Developer of the upcoming Doom Eternal chapter has made it very clear that this title is a follow up to the 2016 release of Doom, so a sequel to the remake. Now, if you had the pleasure of playing through the original Doom from 1993 you would already know just how different the 2016 release is, and how difficult it was to complete compared to the original.
Developed by id Software, DOOM® Eternal™ is the direct sequel to the award-winning and best-selling DOOM® (2016). Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power as you rip-and-tear your way across dimensions with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat. Powered by idTech 7 and set to an all-new pulse-pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, DOOM Eternal puts you in control of the unstoppable DOOM Slayer as you blow apart new and classic demons with powerful weapons in unbelievable and never-before-seen worlds.Bethesda
No official date has been announced regarding the release of Doom Eternal, however with promises of a 2019 release we can start getting excited for this next installment.
Doom Eternal features new abilities not previously seen in the rest of the franchise. One of the new abilities that you will have when controlling the Slayer is climbing and jumping between different surfaces. In the earlier releases our player movements were fairly limited with running along a single surface/platform. Now, with the addition of a chain in your inventory, you can grapple and climb your way to different areas of the map.
We have reached out to ID Software in the hopes of gaining a little more information on the release schedule for Doom Eternal, and are awaiting a comment from them.
