DOOM Is Back And It's More Brutal And Bloody Than Ever!

DOOM Is Back And It's More Brutal And Bloody Than Ever!

Rewind back to 1993 and the very first incarnation of sci-fi themed demonic first-person shooter DOOM was unleashed onto the world. It would go on to become one of the most influential and ground-breaking releases in video game history, ushering a new wave of fans addicted to the rapid fire first-person shooter genre.

DOOM didn't just break ground, it visibly pushed audiences to new levels of tension and violent delight. The bloodshed was genuinely graphic and the weapons looked and sounded real. Who could ever forget the BFG? Also known as 'Big F**king Gun' - that certainly came in handy on more than one occasion.

With all kinds of satanic references littered about the place and demons lurking around every corner, it was the perfect environment to cause utter chaos. It felt damn good blowing the hell out of everything in your way, regardless of whether they were alive or undead.

Plus who could forget the multiplayer Deathmatch? That was a total mindf**k of an experience. Talk about complete carnage.

Now 23 years since its arrival, DOOM is back. If you thought the previous versions were intense, nothing is going to prepare you for what lies ahead. The 2016 edition is packed with relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, a brand new storyline and a fast, fluid movement engine making combat silky smooth.

You play as the DOOM Marine, a mysteriously unique solider that has been activated to exterminate a massive demon force unleashed at a secret UAC (Union Aerospace Corporation) energy research complex on Mars. As you fight to eliminate the ravaging onslaught and destroy the hellish source of the invasion, you'll begin to uncover the nature of hell’s deep-rooted influence on the UAC.

There is no taking cover or stopping to regenerate health as you beat back hell’s raging demon hordes. It’s down to you to combine your arsenal of futuristic and iconic guns, upgrades, movement and an advanced melee system to knock-down, slash, stomp, crush, and blow apart demons in creative and violent ways.

The multiplayer mode has been beefed up to a whole new level too, with many modes and maps to try out. You'll get the option to annihilate your enemies utilising your personal blend of skill, powerful weapons, vertical movement, and unique power-ups, one of which allows you to play as a demon!

DOOM is also built for endless possibilities – DOOM SnapMap is a powerful but easy-to-use game and level editor which means anyone can build their own maps and modes. You can make single-player, co-op or multiplayer modes, and unique experiences from puzzles and challenges to music makers and memory games. Your imagination is the limit!

Here's a preview of what you can expect in the 2016 edition....

By the way, here's some in-game screenshots of the kind of demonic forces you'll be coming face-to-face with. We don't want to give all the surprises away but rest assured this is just a fraction of the kind of foe you'll be tasked with sending back to the underworld - with or without their heads!

Looks f**king awesome doesn't it?! The game itself is available worldwide on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Just make sure that when you get it, you strap yourself in tight.

It's going to be one hell of a ride.
