    This looks fantastic, watching the video and hearing the crowds reaction was pretty exciting :D

    I loved the first Doom, i like a game that knows what it's about and goes all in with it.

    I hope they make a better, detailed campagin this time, and what I hope the most is that the developers reveal the doom slayer's true idenity in this game. So far too many guesses but not one sigle confirmed answer who he really is.

    Jeez that looks epic.. that grapple hook, the enemies falling apart as you shoot & the players coming into your match.. so cool..

    Also looks like they fixed the whole walk into room, doors lock and kill all enemies then doors unlock problem of previous title.

    I don't understand why it has to have MP at all. Never touched the MP of Doom 2016 and it's one of my favourite recent games. It's not like you're short on choice when it comes to MP games lately! Would much rather they focus 100% on SP.

    Not saying I object to MP per se, but it's annoying when it's put in half arsed because gamers expect all fps to have MP.

    I dunno, token MP modes like co-op and DM are fun for a blat between friends.

    The annoying part is when an SP based title is downrated for having MP modes.

    Oh no don't think that I want MP at all. I'd be happy as hell with a pure single player and maybe something co-op? Basically I have Quake Champions for my shooter fix (which is now permanently free2play btw, go grab it!).

    He's pretty good at games. He does the run in the 4k video @ 37 mins.

    Like it. Feels more like Doom original to me - kinda janky and crazy, less focused the player.

    This is true. As a fan of Doom 2016, MGS4 and SpecOps for example, it was annoying seeing reviewers saying "the SP is phenomenal and a good length. But the MP sucks so...." just don't play the MP and the game amazing? I wouldn't say my favourite restaurant is less enjoyable because they have one thing on the menu I don't like.

    Can't believe how much mobility they've given the Slayer! It was kinda crazy how fast you could get around already, if this is balanced well the fights in this could be mental.

    Some of my best gaming memories were playing Q2 + expansions from beginning to end co-op, repeatedly.

    Really looking forward to this.
    It looks great, but it will be interesting to see if they can get it right. I found movement in 2016 to be a bit unnatural compared to other shooters.

    Hope it doesn't have the bugs on release of doom'16. wasted so much time, restarting because it crashed corrupted my save than said I'd cheated.

    other than that, loved the doom'16 and this looks like more of the same + more insanity.

    The freedom of movement in Eternal looks epic which should make gameplay a lot more enjoyable and the artwork is just stunning. One thing I really like is how they have evolved the enemy and your arsenal of weapons.

    this, i thought the weapons where going to basically be the same, as with the monsters (maybe a couple of new ones). glad to see they changed alot of it
