According to those reactions we learned two things. The first being that this is indeed a reboot. The latest E3 teaser took out the “4” in Doom 4, suggesting the idea for Doom 4 was no more. Turns out, that is the case and Doom is a reboot to the franchise and it will return to it’s roots.
This means that we will get big guns, close combat in corridors, and awesome demons again! This leads to the second fact, the game is simply looking insane. The game has massive weapons with lots of gore like expected, but also some hand to hand combat. At one point the player was even ripped to shreds! The game also appears to be faster paced than Doom 3, which is great.
We will have reactions here at Cinelinx as soon as our team returns from the event!
To summarize it a bit, PC Gamer’s own Tweet said it best : ““A demon just ripped the player’s arms off and beat him to death with them. The room is breaking out into a standing ovation.”
