DOOM Eternal Gameplay at QuakeCon 2018

Bethesda, as usual, held a keynote at their QuakeCon event in the Dallas / Fort Worth region of Texas. So far so good. They then revealed DOOM Eternal with over 15 minutes of gameplay spread across three brutal segments.

Even though the reboot had a lot more… airborne activity… than the original, the new “meat hook” ability allows the player to grapple toward enemies. (At least, I only saw them grapple enemies. Maybe other things too? Probably not, though.) While not exactly a new mechanic, it looks like it flows well with DOOM’s faster-paced gameplay.

DOOM Eternal is coming to the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and even the Nintendo Switch. No release date has been announced.

and it'll likely won't launch on Steam because Bethesda are greedy aholes.

The funny thing is that Bethesda games often go on sale for 50%-off on the first or second major Steam sale after launch.

DOOM launched in mid-May 2016, and was 40%-off by mid-June 2016 (Summer Sale 2016), and 50%-off in August (Steam's QuakeCon sale).
