"Doom Eternal" doesn't have a release date yet.

Games Inbox: Are you still playing Fortnite? The DOOM Slayer is in for some upgrades of his own, and Bethesda showed off art for some of the weapons he'll be able to use in Eternal. You can either become a demon and battle enemy slayers solo, or join up with friends to form a "hunting party" and really ruin a few days. Id hasn't said whether Doom Eternal will have a traditional multiplayer mode like Doom 2016 did, but honestly, this sounds a lot better.

They added, "In this open-world shooter, you'll venture out into this "new" world taking on quests, upgrading and driving your vehicle across desolate and foreboding landscapes, and engage in some epic gunplay that the celebrated game studio is so well known for".

Firefighters were joined by colleagues from other counties as they tried to prevent the fire spreading. In the horrifying footage, the "firenado" is seen swirling as firefighters rushed to the scene.

"Doom Eternal" is bringing back some classic enemies, like "Doom 2's" Arachnotron and Pain Elemental, plus there will be a number of new foes to rip and tear. It's a fun way to get around and it lets you skip all that awkward mid-range combat where the Super Shotgun can't aerosolize faces. The game is DOOM 2016's sequel, and it will take up from where that left off.

QuakeCon 2018 is officially underway, and perhaps the biggest part of Bethesda's keynote address was the reveal of DOOM Eternal gameplay.

What they also promised was the ability for you to possess demons and invade other player's games, and even team up with friends against other people. What we do know is that one, it'll be out for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch; and two, there will most definitely blood.
