  • News DOOM Eternal Gives the Doom Slayer a Makeover with Character Customisation

    Isn't that cute

    The Doom Slayer gives off a very, very serious vibe, but if this latest DOOM Eternal trailer is anything to go by, he loves to customise his armour and don an entirely different outfit once in a while. That's right, when the next great id Software title drops next week on PlayStation 4, you'll be able to tweak nearly everything...

  • News DOOM Eternal Comes Packing a Day One Patch on PS4

    At least it runs at 60fps

    There are some things in modern games we just have to grin and bear, and one of these is the day one update.

  • News After That Awful Ad, the DOOM Eternal Soundtrack Sounds Incredible

    Get the team together

    If the recent TV advert for DOOM Eternal which had us all questioning the choice of music put you in a state of concern, you can now worry no longer.

  • News DOOM Eternal's TV Ad Is Being Torn Apart for Its Shocking Lack of Metal Music

    Rightly so

    What do you think of when you think of DOOM? Demons, big mad guns, blood-soaked hellscapes, brutal action... And thumping metal music, obviously. The unapologetically metal soundtrack to 2016's DOOM elevated the shooter massively, and we expect DOOM Eternal's track list to do the same. So whose idea was it to put generic borderline...

  • Round Up DOOM Eternal Sounds Like a Worthy Trip to Hell in New Previews

    DOOM cranked to 11

We certainly hope that's the case, so much so that this new set of previews fills us with confidence that id Software's next first-person shooter is going to be something special. We've...

  • News Take a Long Look at DOOM Eternal in Gameplay Walkthrough with Creative Director

    "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.

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

  • 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.

    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.

    Room for DOOM

    Things could have gone badly wrong for DOOM.
