    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...

    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.

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