Ready to raze some hell? Well, Doom Eternal is just months from release and we can’t wait to properly get our hands on the sequel to the much-loved 2016 reboot.
The new game looks even faster, more frenetic, and more gore-filled than its predecessor – and was meant to be hitting our screens in November. However, we now know that the Doom Eternal’s release date has been pushed back to March 20 2020, delaying the instant gratification only tearing through hordes of the undead with our bare hands can provide us. But from what we’ve seen and played of Doom Eternal, we think it will still be worth the wait.
It’s worth mentioning that March 20 release date only applies to the PS4 and Xbox One versions too – while a Nintendo Switch release is confirmed, it will be arriving sometime after the other consoles.
Doom Eternal comes four years after the 2016 Doom reboot, and will feature the same unnamed marine (AKA the Doom Slayer) taking on the forces of hell – this time bringing the action to our own humble planet, and possibly even to heaven.
With a larger backdrop to the blood-fuelled action, and new online multiplayer modes confirmed for the game, there’s still plenty to be excited about, even if we have to wait a little longer to get our hands on it. Here’s everything we know about Doom Eternal.
