Panic Button are handling the Switch port!

i’ll go with the Switch version day one and then pick it up on PS4 when the price drops to £10 like the first one did

That's great news, Milner! Panic delivered a high quality version of Doom for Switch, so lets hope that Eternal contains all of the fast action of the other versions :-).

I'll be there as soon as it launches on Switch (seeing rumours of the same day as the others but I'll wait and see), loved Doom on the Switch.

Okay, I'm hyped and pretty pumped about this, BUT, there's quite a few changes in that video. I'm worried they may try and over egg this pudding, especially with comments from Marty Stratton saying "were not building a doom game, but a doom universe". Like no, maybe just focus on making DE great and leave the expanded universe crap for after

I have to say I agree.
Doom is at its best when it's a strictly linear experience not an open world. Sure Doom has had open areas but they're part of an overall path I don't think Doom needs to join the ranks of open world games and I honestly see nothing wrong with well structured linear story led game (even if the story of Doom is basically just kill gooseberry fool it's still a story) that has well placed and considered set-pieces.

This is my feeling. Some of that footage, especially towards the end of the extended gameplay, looked strawberry floating insanely good but I am worried they've succumbed to sequelitus and simply upped the intensity of everything. I'm not a fan of the invasion mechanic either, which I assume will have an opt-in function, and the majority of the new creature designs are a little bland BUT that was a criticism of the first game too, and didn't effect my enjoyment of it one jot.

Was there a release date mentioned?

(And yeah, strawberry float that franchise building nonsense)

Oh yeah, I forgot about the invasions. I have NO desire to do that in anything other than a souls game. I remember in Dying light someone invaded my game, all it did was irritate me and make me turn off the invasion feature about 2 seconds later. Like I just worry this is some extraneous bullshit theyre flinging at a game that was next to strawberry floating flawless already. Don't distill the Doom experience with pointless gooseberry fool. Again im not trying to be negative for the sake of it cause the gameplay and graphics looked fantastic, I just don't want them to strawberry float it up is all.

Doom is incredible, can't wait for this to be in a steam sale in a year or two so I can get it for sub £10 :nod:

Footage looks a bit off. The animations lack the punch that the originals had.

But yeah, I will play the gooseberry fool out of angry space marine.

Watched the gameplay this morning, looking good so far considering it's still a work in progress.

Looks the same to the first one, which isn’t bad for its fans, but not for me.

I love the traversal options they've thrown in for this one. Looks like a really fun way to keep your speed and momentum up, while allowing for some really cool Glory Kill options.

Watched the gameplay again and noticed a few things:

- The infighting between monsters seems to have been dialled up. A couple of times you see monsters firing at something before the Doomguy arrives; I assumed there'd be other human NPCs but if you look it's the new shotgunguys firing at imps.
- The whole Phobos level seems to be a re-imagining of the Big Gun level from Quake 2
- There's a new dash move I didn't see before, as well as a double double-jump.
- I really strawberry floating hate the "Demon can be an offensive term" line. Apparently QuakeCon was packed with alt-right fuckwads this year and this sort of gooseberry fool only caters to that mindset.

The more I watch the footage the more hyped I get. Like I say, completely not bothered by the Invasion mechanic but this looks to be exactly what I wanted: more of the same.

There's a load of concept art released by id here. The two I found most interesting are below:

Big old Quake 1 vibes from that second one.
