QuakeCon 2020 is cancelled

The Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center will not ring with the detonation of rockets or chugging of Bawls this August, for QuakeCon 2020 has been cancelled. Id Software's 25th annual fragfest is called off due to the usual concerns and uncertainties of the Covid-19 pandemic. What began as a big ol' LAN party has grown into a big marketing event too, particularly after Bethesda…

Rip and tear in third-person with this Doom Eternal mod

It feels criminal to do this to Doom Eternal. Doom is the ur-FPS. Not the first, by any means, but the most - the first-person shooter we've been chasing for decades. In their own act of heresy, though, modders have plucked the eyes from our Doom Slayer and hung them a few feet behind his rear, turning Doom Eternal's meaty in-your-face gorefest into a ludicrously…

You can use a secret pistol in Doom Eternal through the power of console commands

Now, I'm not entirely sure why you'd want to bother using a pistol when Doom Eternal starts you off with a shotgun, but hey, there's one hidden in the game's files anyway if you fancy a go with it. It's a proper working weapon by the looks of things, just one that never made it into the final version of the game. You can get…

This Doomguy and Isabelle video is gut-rippin’ gold

Even before their shared release date rolled around, Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing fans were wishing one another the best of luck on the arrival of their extremely opposite games. It's silly. It's adorable. It's like that anime trope where the large, scary looking character is actually a softie and their adorable and dainty best friend secretly has a murderous temper. Doomguy and Isabelle are…

Rip and tear with Animal Crossing’s Isabelle in this Doom II mod

If you're anything like me, you're currently going through some intense Animal Crossing: New Horizons FOMO. These sort of lifestyle sims aren't for me, but I'll admit - watching my mutuals posting their island adventures non-stop has me a little jealous. Where's my Tanuki landlord? Why can't I have a best friend who is also a dog? For the Doom marine, the latter is only…

Bethesda didn’t want Doom Eternal to include deathmatch “just for the sake of doing it”

When Doom Eternal comes out on Friday, it won't include a deathmatch mode. The series that invented multiplayer deathmatch has done away with straight up murder competitions, because, according to Bethesda vice president Pete Hines, "that mode is eons old". "I don't know what that has to do with [Doom] other than that, well, a couple of decades ago we had that, so we should…

AI researcher turns his face into the Doomguy, unleashes hell

The Doomguy. Stoic, silent, flickering eyes at the bottom of the screen. He's not really the talkative type, is he? Who would've guessed his first words weren't "death" or "murder" or "double-barrelled", but a Russian-language explanation of complex neural network modelling techniques? This week, developer Denis Malimonov unleashed his own sort of hell - replacing his regular human face with the Doom Slayer's low-fidelity visage…

Doom Eternal’s launch trailer has risen, a little early

While Doom Eternal will not launch until next week, the launch trailer has ripped and torn through the pages of the calendar to show us its sights early. Ah sure, go on, I'll take a little ultraviolence now to tide me over. A little plasma to warm my hands in these tumultuous last days of winter. A small swell of screams to drown out the…

It’s no wonder that Doom Eternal won’t run at “true 4K” on Google Stadia any more

When Google Stadia was first announced at GDC last year, id boss Marty Stratton promised that Doom Eternal would run at "true 4K" when it launched on the search giant's cloud streaming service. However, according to id's updated specs for the game, this is no longer going to be the case. Instead, the Stadia version of Doom Eternal will now run at 1800p when played…

Doom Eternal won’t have ray tracing for quite some time

Bad news for anyone hoping to play Doom Eternal in all its real-time ray tracing glory when it comes out on March 20th, as id Software's studio director Marty Stratton has confirmed that the team have only just started to look at what they can do with the fancy pants reflection tech. As a result, it's looking increasingly unlikely that Doom Eternal will have ray…

Doom Eternal is delayed into 2020, but at least Doom 64 is coming to PC

If you've been looking forward to Doom Eternal as respite from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I come bearing bad news: it's been delayed. Previously due on November 22nd, Doom Eternal is now due on March 20th, 2020. Id Software say they want more time to, y'know, make it proper good. To balance out the bad news, Id also announced that 1997's…

Doom Eternal details its multiplayer Battlemode

Id Software have given some more details about Doom Eternal’s multiplayer experience, Battlemode, at its QuakeCon presentation. It’ll be based on an asymmetrical structure, putting one Slayer up against two demons. There’ll be five different classes of demons to choose from, so you can mix up how you play. Or, you know, play Doom like you would in the singleplayer campaign as the Slayer, except…

Tim Willits leaving Id Software after 24 years

One of the last of the Id Software old guard is parting company with the studio soon. Tim Willits wasn't part of the original team of founders, but was there early enough to be credited as level designer on 1995's Ultimate Doom and have a credit in almost everything since. After working as a designer and creative director on the likes of Quake, Doom 3…

Doom Eternal brings veiny vistas and violence to November

I'm sure the chainsaws and shotguns and evisceration of Doom Eternal are grand and all but tonight when watching the trailer announcing its release date, I could only think "Ooh that's a lovely landscape." Hellish gates opening to reveal a Bosch-esque, Babel-y spire is a good view. A wee snippet of pure red figures bowing in synchronised worship is grand. I like that the smooth…

Bethesda return to Steam with Rage 2, Doom Eternal and Fallout 76

Bethesda are backing down from plans to make Rage 2 and other upcoming games exclusive to their own launcher, announcing today via Twitter that they'll all be sold on Steam. Confirmed headed back to Valve's storefront is Rage 2, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, VR spinoff Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot and (most importantly) Doom Eternal. The move will be partially retroactive as well, with Fallout 76 confirmed for a Steam release…

Doom Eternal embraces its retro roots in tons of new QuakeCon footage

It should be pretty clear by now that I am an enormous fan of Doom 1 & 2, and 90s FPS design in general. While I greatly enjoyed Id Software's 2016 reboot of the series, I didn't love it. After watching three good chunks of footage live from QuakeCon, I'm feeling a lot more positive about its sequel, Doom Eternal. Green-haired zombies, spiky imps, semi-abstract…

Id & Bethesda games going cheap ahead of QuakeCon

The frags will flow like Bawls this weekend at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center, where Id Software are throwing their annual LAN party/convention, QuakeCon. Thousands of gib-hungry gremlins will lug their computers to Texas and many more will loiter around the festivities. It's become more ZenCon in recent years, featuring more from corporate siblings Bethesda and other studios and games owned by ZeniMax…
