Gameplay

Players once more combat the role of the Doomguy (Doom Slayer) who battles the demonic forces of Hell, from a first-person perspective. The game continues its predecessor’s emphasis on “push-forward” combat, encouraging the player to aggressively engage enemies so as to accumulate health, ammo, and armor. The player has access to varied firearms, like the Combat Shotgun, Super Shotgun, Heavy Cannon, launcher, Plasma Rifle, Chaingun, BFG 9000, and Ballista. Melee weapons like a chainsaw, the “Crucible Blade” energy sword, and a retractable arm-blade called the “Doomblade” also can be used. The arm-blade provides the chance for a bigger sort of quick and violent “glory kill” executions, which drop extra health. The Super Shotgun is now equipped with the “Meat Hook”, a ranged accessory which grabs on to enemies and slingshots the player towards them, functioning as a grapnel, useful both in combat scenarios and environmental navigation. The Doom Slayer’s armor now includes a shoulder-mounted Equipment Launcher with the power to lob grenades and ice bombs. Additionally, the Flame Belch may be a flame thrower, which causes the enemies to assail fire with it to drop armor pickups. Finally, killing enemies with the chainsaw will drop ammunition. New movement mechanics like wall-climbing, dash moves, and horizontal bars to swing from have also been introduced.

Like its predecessor, Doom Eternal invites the player to develop simple tactics. As the game gets harder, the player must use the benefits of fight arenas, and their bonuses, smarter. They also got to decide which enemy has got to be killed first and the way to maneuver on the battlefield.

Accolades

Doom Eternal was nominated for “Most Wanted Game” at the 2018 Golden Joystick Awards. At Game Critics Awards 2019, the game won the awards for Best PC Game and Best Action Game.

Plot

Sometime after the events on Mars, Earth has been overrun by demonic forces, wiping out 60% of the planet’s population, under the now-corrupted Union Aerospace Corporation. What remains of humanity has either fled Earth or have joined the Armored Response Coalition, a resistance movement formed to prevent the invasion, which has gone into hiding after suffering heavy losses. The Doom Slayer, having previously been betrayed and teleported away by Dr. Samuel Hayden, returns with a satellite fortress controlled by the AI VEGA to quell the demonic invasion by killing the Hell Priests: Deags Nilox, Ranak, and Grav. The priests serve an angelic being referred to as the Khan Maykr who seeks to sacrifice mankind. The Slayer teleports to a destroyed city and kills Deag Nilox, but the Khan Maykr transports the 2 remaining priests to unknown locations, forcing the Slayer to continue searching.

After retrieving a celestial locator from the Sentinel world of Exultia, the Slayer travels to Hell to retrieve an influence source from an exiled Sentinel referred to as the Betrayer, who gives him the facility source and a special dagger. VEGA directs the Slayer to Deag Ranak’s citadel within the Arctic, where the Slayer kills him. In response, the Khan Maykr moves Deag Grav to a hidden location and accelerates the invasion of Earth. With no leads on finding the last Hell Priest, VEGA suggests finding Dr. Hayden, who knows his location. The Slayer goes to an ARC compound where he retrieves Hayden’s damaged robot chassis and therefore the demonic crucible.

Upon uploading Hayden’s mind into the fortress, he reveals Deag Grav is hiding on Sentinel Prime, the sole thanks to getting there is a portal located within the city of Hebeth in Mars’ core. The Slayer travels to a facility on Phobos where he uses the BFG 10000 to shoot a hole in Mars, which he uses to succeed in Hebeth. After reaching Sentinel Prime, flashbacks reveal the Slayer to be Doomguy. Found badly wounded by Sentinels, Doomguy was brought before the Deags and was forced to fight during a gladiatorial arena. Impressed by Doomguy’s ruthlessness in battle, the Deags inducted him into the Sentinels, while the Khan Maykr inquired into Doomguy’s knowledge of the Demons. In the present, the Slayer finds Deag Grav within the arena and kills him, but is excommunicated from the Sentinels for murdering Deag Grav on sacred ground and returns to the fortress.
