DOOM is Out Now - Take Out The Legions of Hell

DOOM is out now! Have you bought it?

DOOM is out now for everyone to enjoy. Going back to its roots, DOOM will let you take on both old hell demons, as well as new ones. Did you pre-order, or are you going to buy DOOM now?

After having a troubled development, DOOM 4 was renamed to just DOOM and became a reboot of the DOOM series. Thankfully, it has not suffered the same fate as many games that have fallen into development hell. It's playable, fun, challenging, fast, and stays true to the gameplay of the originals while adding more modern mechanics.

Singleplayer

DOOM has always been about providing an explosive, action packed, gory, and gib filled campaign, something DOOM 2016 has not forgotten. With the new id Tech 6 engine, the graphics and sound have been dragged into the modern era. Now DOOM is even more gory and even more horrific than before. Enemies are more detailed, which makes them more grotesque and fun to kill. This fun doesn't stop, literally because you have to keep moving. Like games of old there is no regenerating health. The only way to survive is to get up close and personal with the legions of Hell. Chainsaws are optional, but really who wouldn't pick that option?

Multiplayer

Will you play as a space marine, or play as a demon? If the latter, you have to not only be accurate, but fast, and fluid with your movement. Get to the power up first and dominate for a time as the improved Revenant or classic Cyberdemon. As a space marine, clamber up ledges to give yourself a height advantage in both classic and new gamemodes.

Everything about DOOM is paying homage to the classics, and adding in the new -- it's keeping the core of what makes DOOM. The culmination of this is SnapMap, allowing players to edit maps, and create new gamemodes.

DOOM 2016 is out now for Xbox One, PS4, and Windows. Are you ready to take on the forces of Hell?

    DOOOOOOOM! So stoked this is finally here. I remember buying Wolfenstein: The New Order so I could get access to the Doom beta. And now...the time has come.

    But Wolfenstein: TNO was so damn good, still one of the best storylines in shooters.
