Doom Eternal weapons: how to master all the gun types

Early on in Doom Eternal, you'll pick up your first weapon mod. These are secondary fire effects and there are a maximum of two per weapon. You can swap on the fly if you've unlocked both of them and they can make a standard shotgun either throw sticky bombs or turn into a fully automatic shotgun. But there is a way to make them even…

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…

Doom Eternal PC performance: How to get the best settings

Doom Eternal has finally ripped and torn its way onto PC, and to help make sure your rig doesn't explode into its own fiery hellscape, I've been putting the game through its paces to find out how to get the best performance from id Software's fast and furious shooter, and how to get the best settings if you find your graphics card's getting hot under…

The 10 best hells in PC games

“Hell is other people,” wrote Jean-Paul Sartre. “But also my favourite level in Doom.” He was a smart man, and he probably lives in hell now, on account of all the atheism. But listen, hell doesn’t seem that bad. Bit hot. Bit demonic. You could do a lot worse than a trip to the underworld, is what I’m saying, and as luck would have it,…

Feature: Tips for Praetor Suit, Runes, and Sentinel Crystals

Doom Eternal upgrades: which perks to unlock first

It's not just your guns that can be upgraded in Doom Eternal. Praetor Suit points, runes, and Sentinel Crystals can all be used to buff up the Doomguy so that he's not just a mass of muscles under an ill-fitting space marine suit. Well, he still is, but now he can potentially last longer while swimming in radioactive ponds.

Feature: Absolutely gorious

Doom Eternal review

Doom Eternal sucks in the whole of you. Fights plunge you into flow states. They send you wading through demonic maelstroms of gristle and gore. You twist and jump and dash, punching, shooting and chainsawing every Cacodemon that should know better than to cross you. I've danced the bloody ballets of hell and beyond, and I've returned to tell you: they are dazzling. It's a…

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…

Feature: Doomed... to be best friends!

The Doom and Animal Crossing fandoms wish each other luck, are wholesome and lovely

We don't really get the chance to write about Animal Crossing here in the PC gaming wasteland, even though several members of the team are avowed fans of Nintendo's build a lovely village and make friends 'em up. Happily, the somewhat unlikely crossover between Animal Crossing's fans and those of gory demonslaying FPS Doom has given me a valid reason. Doom Eternal's release was delayed…

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…

Feature: 2020 vision

2020’s most exciting new PC games

Over the break we had a chance to do some serious scientific study of this business we call games, and it turns out that games are actually good. 2020 in particular has a healthy mix of big budget bonanzas and smaller indie plates to suit everyone's discerning tastes. And, as you know, the RPS treehouse is the most discerning, so to make it easier for…

Doom Eternal new release date, gameplay, trailer, multiplayer

So Doom Eternal has been put back a few months into an already busy March period. Not the best of things to have to report, but at the very least, those who will be getting the game via a pre-order are now getting a port of Doom 64 as an apology. Below is an updated version of everything you need to know about Doom Eternal.

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…

Sure enough, there were new Stadia games aplenty announced this evening, with the biggest addition being Cyberpunk 2077.

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.

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…
