Doom Eternal gets long-awaited gameplay footage, showcases sword and grappling hook

"Killing bad-ass demons with big guns in unbelievable places".

At QuakeCon this week, the studio unloaded the first gameplay footage from Doom Eternal, sharing a generous seven-minute slice of in-game action that should put to rest any doubt that this encore effort will diverge from its predecessor's winning formula.

Marty Stratton, the game's director, said that the lead character has been upgraded to be "the strongest, most powerful hero we've ever created".

"You're gonna love what you can do with that thing", Martin said.

In Doom Eternal, the Super Shotgun can be augmented with an underslung "Meat Hook", an attachment that the Slayer can use to latch onto enemies and pull himself toward them.

Doom Eternal, the sequel to 2016's series reboot, was announced back at E3 in June but all that was shown then was a pre-rendered sequence of what looked like the Earth overrun by the powers of Hell. "We're spending more time and energy than ever before making sure it feels absolutely unbelievable every time you shoot, punch, kick, slash or otherwise rip and tear one of the demons", Stratton said.

Doom tethered the demonic alien hordes to the Martian hellscape and kept them well away from our home planet, but that all changes with Doom Eternal.

A new, fun feature available in DOOM Eternal is the ability to take control of a demon and invade another player's campaign. Id Software will share more details about that mode at a later date.

Yu can watch some of the Doom Eternal gameplay above, and the game itself will be releasing apparently on December 28 for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
