    "The thinking man's action game"

    We all know roughly what to expect from DOOM Eternal when it unleashes hell on PlayStation 4 in November, but it's been a little while since we've seen it properly.

  • News Deleted Age Rating Suggests DOOM 64 Is Coming to PS4

    Doubt there will be cross-play

    Bethesda has gone a bit DOOM mad in celebrating its 25th anniversary.

    Publisher working on an update

    Last week, Bethesda released DOOM, DOOM II, and DOOM 3 on PlayStation 4 as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations.

    2 for 1

    We got a good look at DOOM Eternal at the end of Bethesda's E3 2019 press conference, including its multiplayer.

Named Battlemode, the multiplayer sees one player assume the role of a DOOM...

  • E3 2019 DOOM Eternal Rips and Tears a Late November Release Date

    See you in hell

    After an impressive gameplay demonstration, DOOM Eternal was finally dated for a 22nd November release.

    Eternally DOOMED

    E3 2019 is so close now we can almost taste the system wars and sleepless nights, but if you needed further evidence that the convention is right around the corner, look what’s happening to LA’s famous Figueroa Hotel. That’s right, it’s currently being covered in an enormous DOOM Eternal mural – well, it’s got to be...

  • News DOOM Eternal May Have a Choir of Heavy Metal Screamers

    Bloody roar

    DOOM Eternal’s soundtrack will potentially feature a choir of screamo singers, as composer Mick Gordon has put out a call for fans of Enter Shikari et al.

  • News DOOM Eternal's Multiplayer Will Be Developed In-House

    "You're gonna really enjoy it"

    DOOM was one of 2016’s most beloved releases, but you rarely hear anyone mention its disappointing multiplayer mode.

  • News DOOM Eternal's Looking Hot As Hell in Huge Gameplay Reveal

    Bloody hell

    Hell on Earth

    Doom Eternal, a direct sequel to 2016's well received reboot, got a brilliant trailer for its announcement at Bethesda's E3 2018 conference, but not much else. The publisher stated that the game would be shown off at QuakeCon 2018, but it won't just be for those in attendance. The news was recently shared via the official Doom Twitter...

  • Hands On DOOM VFR Supports Three PSVR Controllers, But None Feel Quite Right

    Hell in your hands

    DOOM VFR is a very handsome game with PlayStation VR, a statement we’re noticing ourselves make more often as virtual reality titles mature. Bethesda’s also gone out of its way to support all three of Sony’s PSVR controllers: the DualShock 4, the PlayStation Move, and the (underused but outstanding) PlayStation VR Aim...

    Time to meet your DOOM

    Sony’s flooding the market with new PlayStation VR bundles at the moment, and DOOM VFR is the latest title to get the pack-in treatment.

  • Hands On DOOM VFR Cleverly Keeps You on the Move in PlayStation VR

    Welcome to your DOOM

    DOOM is not a stop and pop shooter.

It was a genius system, forcing...

  • News DOOM VFR Reloads with PlayStation VR Aim Controller Support

    Hell yeah

    It’s been rumoured for a little while, but DOOM VFR will have full PlayStation VR Aim Controller support. Sony’s likeable virtual reality accessory originally released with Farpoint, and gives you unprecedented control in first-person shooter games. Judging by a

    Take a guess what the F stands for

    During Bethesda's E3 press conference, it highlighted two virtual reality titles it has in the works.

Bethesda did also...

  • 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...

    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'...

    Hell's respawn

    We've been to Hell and back – and all you're getting is this lousy DOOMvideo review.

Watch on as we walk you through id Software's unashamedly old-school FPS – and come...

  • 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 so...

  • 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 on...

    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 where's...

    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...

    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...

    "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 to...

  • 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.

Indeed, one thing that we're still missing is confirmed release date, but thanks to a possible...

    Arena action

    How do you reboot a franchise like DOOM? Well, you make it familiar – but amplify everything so it feels fresh again.

    Behind closed door presentations are not uncommon in this industry, but they’re especially odd when fans are invited to them.
