A demonic face-off from Doom’s past is sealed inside Doom Eternal’s soundtrack

There's more than a bit of metal in Doom Eternal. The rhythmic bass blasts of super-shotguns, tinny chaingun power solos, verses punctuated by gory breaks and technical fingerwork. It's only natural that Doom's soundtrack contains a little bit of hell in kind. But beyond all the blood and bass and demonic incantations, audiophiles have found Doom 2's cover art embedded in the very roots of…

Doom Eternal’s composer doesn’t approve of the soundtrack album’s mixing

Blood, guts, and chainsaws are integral parts of Doom, but so are its bangin' metal soundtracks. Australian game sounds man Mick Gordon was the composer for both Doom (the 2016 one) and Doom Eternal's soundtracks, winning multiple awards for the former back when it released. The Doom Eternal OST launched over the weekend and apparently something sounded off to those with an ear for it.…

Doom Eternal devs watching a speedrun ask “What just happened?” a whole lot

A standard run of Doom Eternal might take 15-20 hours, but you can cut that down to under half an hour with a few cheeky glitches and a whole lot of skill. IGN sat four of Doom Eternal's lead developers down in front of a 27-minute world record speedrun to record their reactions and, well, it involves a whole lot of asking "What just happened?"…

I hate Doom Eternal’s new coffee-sipping Archvile

Checking out a new coffee shop is intimidating enough as-is. Wondering whether the wifi's good enough for work, checking the prices on the croissants, trying to figure out how "chatty" the baristas are. The last thing I need is one of Doom Eternal's cretins judging me for my choice of milk alternative. Until May 14th, Eternal's Coffee and Camo Series lets you grind out a…

Feature: Or a cheeky Kabaddi ripoff

Doom Eternal’s multiplayer is a splendid game of cats and demonic mice

Doom Eternal doesn't have a Deathmatch mode. The multiplayer not a place where marines chase other marines: it's a place where one character gets to be the Slayer from the singleplayer, and two other players gang up on them as chunky demons. The idea was to capture the same feeling as the campaign, and yep, that it does. Grappling up to a jetpack monster is…

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…

Feature: How to complete the challenges in mission seven

Doom Eternal Mars Core collectables: all secrets in the seventh mission

I have some good news and some bad news regarding the seventh mission of Doom Eternal. The good news is that there are fewer collectables here compared to the previous mission. The bad news is that there are still 20 of them. Once you have them, the vast bulk of the collectables will be yours, so let's get into it.

Feature: How to complete the challenges in mission five

Doom Eternal Super Gore Nest collectables: all secrets in the fifth mission

With the fifth mission of Doom Eternal, the number of collectables has gone up rather significantly. It's very easy to miss them as well, since there may be multiple items in one secret location. But don't worry, I've found all of them and have put together this list of their locations.

Feature: Secret disk locations in the hub area

Doom Eternal Final Sin and Fortress Of Doom collectables: how to get the final secrets

Now, I know what you're thinking. Why have I combined the collectables for the final level and the hub area of Doom Eternal? The fact of the matter is that the final level only has one collectable to be found, but the hub area also has a couple of secret items that are very well hidden.

Feature: How to complete the twelfth mission's challenges

Doom Eternal Urdak collectables: all secrets in the twelfth mission

This is the final level in Doom Eternal where hunting for collectables is a major part of the game. While they're nowhere near as difficult to get to as some missions, these last few items are at least well hidden. We will uncover their locations, so you can complete your collection for most items.

Feature: The Doomguy toy is adorable

Doom Eternal Hell On Earth collectables: all secrets in the first mission

The first mission of Doom Eternal is more of a tutorial stage than anything else. It's here that you'll learn all about weapon mods, alternate firing modes, and how to kill some of the first few demons. While a lot of the items here are on the main path, there are a few that are hidden away.

Feature: No, really, this one is very simple

Doom Eternal Sentinel Prime collectables: all secrets in the eighth mission

Entering Sentinel Prime in Doom Eternal is a rather ominous prospect. At the very least, hunting for collectables here is extremely simple. Most of the items found are Codex Entry pages, but there is one ghost knight with a Praetor Suit point that you may have a small problem finding.

Feature: The hunter becomes the hunted

Doom Eternal Doom Hunter Base collectables: all secrets in the fourth mission

All along the fourth mission of Doom Eternal, you will see a Doom Hunter being constructed. A rather ominous prospect and with good reason, as at the end of the level is a boss fight. However, this is not the only thing you can find here as there are quite a few collectable items to seek.

Feature: Where to find the secret encounters

Doom Eternal Exultia collectables: all secrets in the second mission

The second mission of Doom Eternal brings up the concept of Weapon Points. These are upgrades that you can use to spend on buffing up your weapon mods that you have unlocked. There are Weapon Points that you'll always unlock when going through a mission, but there are also secret encounters and the Slayer encounters that are optional. The second mission has a bunch of…

Feature: Tips to complete the third mission's challenges

Doom Eternal Cultist Base collectables: all secrets in the third mission

Just before the third mission of Doom Eternal, you're introduced to Praetor Suit Points. These are coins held by ghostly knights who gently take the knee once you have received the coin. It's as if they know their place, unlike the demons that are defending the hell priest. New enemies here include Whiplash, a snake-like foe, and the grotesquely fat Mancubus.
