At Bethesda’s E3 showcase, a new Doom Eternal story trailer was released, along with a release date for the gruesome first-person shooter. Doom Eternal will arrive on November 22, 2019.
The trailer shows lots of bloody, fast-paced action and a warning for the Doom Slayer. “What you interfere with now is bigger than you can imagine.” Something tells me the Slayer isn’t going to be intimidated.
The game isn’t just set on Earth. Concept art teased new areas that looked nothing like anything that had appeared in previous DOOM games. They were coy on the details, but there is a much greater variety of locales in DOOM Eternal. A section set on Phobos showed more NPCs and story development as the Doom Slayer walked through a control room — scientists look at him with equal parts awe and fear — and out onto the battleground that rages on the planet’s surface. This section ended with the reveal of the Revenant, pulling the same attack pose from DOOM II, and the Doom Slayer revealing The Crucible, an item found in the previous game, but with its hidden sword form only hinted at. Here, he prepares to unleash the full blade before the footage ends.
