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.

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)

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.
