New DOOM trailer has blood, guts and a release date

Doom boxart is pretty terrible

Just earlier today I was ragging on the truly terrible boxart for the new DOOM, but I remain as excited for it as I was back at E3 last year. DOOM is really tapping into the essence of the demon slaying first-person madness, with the same over the top weaponry, enemies and locales that the original boasted so many years ago. And it’s coming out really, really soon.

DOOM is set to launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC as early as May 13th, with the date being ousted in a brand new campaign trailer for the game. Don’t expect much exposition or narrative despite the name. This is DOOM, so you’re getting lots of guns, lots of guts, and a whole lot of action instead. Not complaining.

There’s a whole lot of new executions (that goes for the player too) and a really nicely stitched together spot of single-player footage that wraps around some of the different areas you’ll likely visit as the nameless Marine. There’s also some good looks at classic DOOM enemies – including what they look like on the inside. But the best part is the pace of it all. DOOM is meant to be a fast shooter, and nothing says that more than a breakneck speed trailer such as this.

Suffice to say, we’re all pretty excited for it.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

        “Liefie, there’s this game”
        “NO!”
        “But Liefie, it’s DOOM”
        “I know, I’m buying it for me…”

        • Darren Peach

          Lol.

  • Hammersteyn

    May 13rd? Is that after the 12nd? 😛

    • Alessandro Barbosa

      Say what? 😛 (ninja)

      • Hammersteyn

        XD

    • Captain JJ ‘saurus

      XD

  • Hammersteyn

    SOLD, luckily I still have my PS3. XD

  • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

    Woohoo!! I cannot wait for this… Think I’ll revisit the franchise for the next few weeks…

  • Gustav Minnie

    Nice!

  • Hockeyfan1664

    There’s enough blood in this trailer to supply the red cross for the next 10 years.

    • Hammersteyn

      Hahahaha

    • HairyEwok

      Sure let’s give demon blood to people which will in turn cause a whole new problem….. Like a deadspace mutant problem XD

      • Darren Peach

        Wouldn’t be a bad thing considering the current state of the World.

  • Darren Peach

    All you need to say is Dooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom !

  • Darren Peach

    Looks like they have used some old school design elements on the Demon at the end ( and the Caccodemon, but we knew that already )

  • Captain JJ ‘saurus

    Dooooooom!

    • Hammersteyn

      I’ve not been this excited for a game in a long long time. Not even Fallout or Destiny. Maybe MGS

      • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

        Wolfenstein: The new Order got me this excited, but that’s because it’s trailer featured Hendrix….

  • HairyEwok

    Wonder if there’ll be any Collectors Editions available for us here in SA?

    • HairyEwok

      Wish there was more though.

      • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

        As awesome as it looks, it’s really bare minimum, but hey, it’s a Revenant, it could’ve been an imp….

        • HairyEwok

          But what you get does not really justify the $120 price tag on it.

          • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

            That’s exactly how I feel too, it’s a Revenant with a fan and LEDs, if it was mechanised, it’d be a completely different story, or if they included a “History of” booklet…

        • Darren Peach

          If you want, I could model any of the Demons in 3d for you. You will have to get em 3d printed. Will do it for a small fee, one of your kidneys……..

    • Darren Peach

      Would love some Doom themed statues.

  • Viking Of Science

    Did Anyone else notice that the Demons are more colourful now vs the E3 reveal?

  • Ghost In The Rift

    Reminds me of that game Jimmy plays on GTA V, Righteous Slaughter lol

  • Satellite11

    Damn. Looks like a whole lotta fun
