  • Game of the Year 2016 #8 - DOOM

    Room for DOOM

    Things could have gone badly wrong for DOOM. After a long development time, a severe lack of single player footage, and a complete absence of reviews on launch day, the title relied on word of mouth throughout its first week of availability. Is it any good? What's the campaign like? Has the multiplayer been improved since its beta?...

  • E3 2016 Go To Hell with New DOOM Multiplayer and Snapmap DLC

    Forged through fire

    While DOOM may stand well enough on its own legs with its formidable campaign, its multiplayer options are solid treats on the side to conduct your next demon-slaying forays. However, one thing that these additional modes lack in various ways is more variety, and thankfully id Software is appropriately addressing these concerns...

  • E3 2016 You Can Download DOOM's First Level on PS4 for Free

    DOOM's day

    Shareware was a big deal when DOOM first started out, so Bethesda's trying to bring back some of that love – by basically releasing a demo for the FPS on the PlayStation Store. The trial – which features the first level from the critically acclaimed campaign – is available on the PlayStation 4 right now, so give it a go if you want...

    Review DOOM

    Leviticus 26:7

    It wasn't until Wolfenstein: The New Order that we noticed how homogeneous first-person shooters have become over the past decade. The genre's certainly made strides forward, but from a big picture perspective, we've spent the past decade or so taking cover and performing pot-shots to reach our objectives. However, MachineGames'...

  • Video Should You Buy DOOM on PS4?

    Hell's respawn

    We've been to Hell and back – and all you're getting is this lousy DOOMvideo review. While reviewer Joey Thurmond is still busy thoroughly investigating every last crevice of the underworld, yours truly has returned from Hades with a tale to tell. Watch on as we walk you through id Software's unashamedly old-school FPS – and...

  • Hands On Dispatching Demons in DOOM on PS4

    \m/

    DOOM wastes no time setting out its stall. There a pentagram, a pistol, and one of Satan's soldiers. Pew, pew – off we go. Extremely late review copies mean that we've only just managed to get our hands on id Software's key card collecting sim – but does this unashamedly old-school FPS make a strong first impression? We're about three or...

  • News Here's What You Can Expect From DOOM's Action-Packed Single Player Campaign

    No guts no glory

    DOOM's out in just a couple of days on PlayStation 4, so it's nice of Bethesda to release some new gameplay footage while we sit here waiting for our review copy to arrive. Snark aside, we're hoping that the shooter's single player campaign is up to snuff, because what we've seen of it so far has looked promising. In the game's...

  • News Don't Expect DOOM PS4 Reviews Any Time Soon

    Review code not being sent until launch

    We're really looking forward to DOOM here at Push Square Towers, but if you're still sitting on the fence, then you may need to wait a little while for reviews. Bethesda has confirmed to IGN that it won't be sending out copies to critics ahead of release, because the title's online servers won't be switched...

  • News DOOM's PS4 Launch Trailer Needs More Double Bass Pedal

    Dub dub-dub-dub dub

    Even as an avid Taylor Swift fan, this author readily admits that sometimes – just sometimes – one needs a little heavy metal in their life. This all-new DOOM launch trailer, with its squealing guitars and muddy basslines, is the perfect tonic to an afternoon spent listening to bittersweet bubblegum pop, then – but...

  • News DOOM PS4 Open Beta, Post-Release Plan Revealed

    Should make the game a little beta

    DOOM, the next iteration in the original FPS franchise, is getting an open beta from 15th April to 18th April, which will contain the Team Deathmatch and Warpath – a king-of-the-hill-type mode in which the target territory moves around in a circular pattern – modes as well as the Heatwave and Infernal maps...

  • News DOOM's Multiplayer Beta Boost Jumps to PS4 This Month

    \m/

    Pull on a Megadeath tee, throw us the horns, and prepare to head bang your way through some breakneck rounds of Team Deathmatch: the DOOM closed beta is coming soon to the PlayStation 4. Bethesda's announced that those who bought Wolfenstein: The New Order and redeemed the bundled code will be able to go hands-on with the bloodiest shooter of...

  • News Don't Like DOOM's Crap Box Art? You Can Vote for a Better Design

    Blown away

    So, DOOM's box art is shite. We've said it, you've probably said it, and the Internet seemed to ramble about the issue for days on end – but now, there's a beacon of hope. The official DOOM Twitter account wants you to vote on a reverse cover for the upcoming shooter, and there are two available options. Option A is a bit arty, but...

  • News DOOM Should Run Like a Bloody Dream on PS4

    "The best-looking game at 1080p, 60fps"

    Gotta love the team over at id Software, eh? The developer's lead project programmer, Billy Khan, has bigged up DOOM's engine ahead of its release in a few months, stating that it'll run at 60 frames per second in 1080p on PlayStation 4. "We want players to wonder how DOOM and idTech 6 games can be so...

  • News DOOM's Single Player Campaign Will Last You 13 Gory Hours

    Better grab some ammo

    We'd like to think that publisher Bethesda is on a roll with the shooters that it's got under its umbrella these days. Much like 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order, it would appear that DOOM is going to provide a rather meaty single player experience. The news comes from the title's official Twitter account, where, in reply...

  • News The Internet Reckons DOOM's PS4 Box Art Is Bad

    And, for once, the Internet is right

    In concept, DOOM couldn't possibly appeal less to this author's tastes. For starters, it's more heavy metal than the doodles on a teenage misfit's pencil case, but it's also one of those games where the shooting's only ever going to be the draw – we're not expecting anything in the way of story at all. Despite...

  • News DOOM Blows Away PS4 in May

    Hell yeah

    Better start stocking up on ammo, because DOOM finally has a confirmed release date. The new-gen shooter has looked great in the footage that we've seen of it so far, with chaotic, brutal battles against ugly, ugly enemies taking precedence over the usual bells and whistles that so many shooters get bogged down with these days. The...

  • News Your PS4 May Be DOOMed This Summer

    Possible release date leaked

    DOOM has had some decent hype behind it ever since it made its gameplay debut back at Bethesda's E3 2015 press conference, but things have been a little quiet over the last few months with regards to the shooter in general. Indeed, one thing that we're still missing is confirmed release date, but thanks to a possible...

  • News DOOM Ditches Campaign Co-Op on PS4

    Shot down

    Sorry expectant couch co-op fans, it sounds DOOM won't have any sort of campaign split-screen when it launches next year. Speaking to PC Gamer, Marty Stratton, the game's executive producer, said that while you'll be able to create your own co-op-esque levels thanks to the title's SnapMap feature, there won't be a more traditional option...

  • E3 2015 DOOM PS4 Deals Death to Demons in Spring 2016

    Middle finger from Mars

    Have we all recovered from Bethesda's laser-focused presser yet? Despite making its E3 2015 media briefing debut, the Zenimax-owned organisation knocked it out of the park with its presentation last night – and then proceeded to stamp awesome all over our faces. Fallout 4 may have been the highlight, but credit must go to...

  • E3 2015 DOOM Multiplayer Goes Old-School on PS4

    Arena action

    How do you reboot a franchise like DOOM? Well, you make it familiar – but amplify everything so it feels fresh again. The single player footage for id Software's first-person reboot literally left this author slack-jawed earlier today – and the multiplayer ain't looking half bad either. While the developer was a little less...

  • E3 2015 Hell Hath No Fury Like a DOOM Gameplay Reveal Trailer

    Demon gore galore

    It's no question that one of Bethesda's most anticipated titles for E3 2015 is the long-awaited, next installment in the DOOM franchise, so, naturally, it kicked off its conference with a bang by opening the gates of Hell with an impressive trailer showing just how much fun slaughtering demons will be on the PlayStation 4 in spring...

  • News We're So Glad the Cancelled DOOM 4 Ultimately Met Its Doom

    Feel the RAGE

    Let's get the Revenant in the room out of the way first: DOOM 4 is not the DOOM game that was teased during a brief trailer yesterday. The numbered sequel was in development at id Software prior to 2012, but was ultimately cancelled. And judging by this leaked footage of the scrapped release that's popped up on

  • News Here's Your First Look at DOOM on PS4

    Guns! Monsters! More at E3!

    It's finally that time of the year where publishers start dropping 10 second trailers and describing them as E3 2015 teasers. The long overdue DOOM is the first to get the blink-and-you'll-miss-it treatment, as we're entitled to a very brief look at a double-barrel shotgun and a beast from beyond. There's also some...

    How would you like to be a space marine on Mars fighting demon robots? With the next game in the DOOM franchise, you can live out this pleasant, admirable dream on your PlayStation 4, starting in the near future with a multiplayer beta. That is, only if you purchased a copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order, which came with a...

  • News You'll Need a PS4 to Participate in the DOOM Beta

    Apologies if you haven't upgraded yet

    We know next to nothing about the game, but Bethesda has confirmed that the recently revealed DOOM beta that’s set to ship alongside pre-orders of MachineGames’ series reboot Wolfenstein: The New Order will only be compatible with the PlayStation 4. That means that if you purchase the aforementioned title on...
