Doom Eternal is a classic FPP shooter, which is a direct continuation of Doom from 2016, a great reboot of the legendary FPS series, which was born in 1993. The game was developed by id Software studio. During the adventure, players travel between dimensions, visiting, among other things, the Earth overrun by the invasion of demons from hell. To defeat them you can use a rich arsenal of deadly weapons, known from the previous part, but improved by several gadgets.

Doom Eternal is mostly inspired by the second part of the series - Hell on Earth published in 1994 and pays tribute to this classic. The appearance of the demons, as well as the first-aid kits and flacons have been modified to resemble those of the past. For nostalgia enthusiasts there is a set of classic weapon sounds from MS-DOS version or skin of the main character referring to the original.

Plot

The story directly continues the events of the previous part and starts some time after it ends. Once again, we play the role of a superhumanly gifted demon killer (Doom Slayer) to stop the forces of hell that have penetrated the Earth and other places in the Solar System. Apart from Earth, during the campaign we also visit Mars and its moon, Phobos - as well as locations in alternative dimensions.

Mechanics

Doom Eternal develops the formula from the previous part, focusing on even faster action. New mobility skills like dash or climbing and gadgets mounted on the hero's armour help us to do this. We have a flamethrower on our arm and a hook with a chain attached to the rifle.

Killing weakened enemies, so-called glory kills, has been enhanced with new animations and this is the main method for restoring health. Developers made sure that only dynamic action allows to stay alive and move forward, because - in addition - the ammunition is supplemented by the use of a chain saw, and armour is gained for setting fire to demons.

Game modes

In addition to the classic single player mode, Doom Eternal offers a novelty - Invasion Mode, in which we can play the demon in another player's role-playing campaign, making it very difficult for him to pass the stage. There's also a PvP module called Battlemode - this time it's a three-player variant, in which one person plays Doom Slayer and fights with the other two, controlling their chosen demons. The game goes through three quick rounds. However, the implementation of the SnapMap editor, which appeared in Doom from 2016, was abandoned.

Technical aspects

Doom Eternal is based on a new version of technology developed by id Software for years - id Tech 7. This means even more detailed graphics and impressive performance, but with impeccable optimization of the game. he soundtrack was once again composed by Mick Gordon, whose sharp, vibrant music was one of the hallmarks of the previous Doom.
