DOOM

headerDOOM was released in May 13, 2016 by Bethesda. The game was developed by idSoftware. DOOM is a first person shooter.

Developed by id software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and created multiplayer Deathmatch, DOOM returns as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience. id Software has been working in this for several years but redesign and other changes have pushed back the release date a few times.

Its back to Union Aerospace for another fight against the demons. Raid fire action with guns galore. There is no taking cover or stopping to regenerate health as you beat back Hell’s raging demon hordes. Melee is now a part of Doom in keeping with modern gaming.

The campaign brings back the action seen in the classic games but the new multiplayer capabilities are where the game really takes off. All the old favorites are here, deathmatch and coop. The arena should also make a splash harkening back to the days of Quake III Arena.

The game world reminds us of Rage with its tesselated rocks and paths. In some ways DOOM is more like Halo and Unreal in its game play in the multiplayer modes. The game is fast paced.

There is very little reason to use anything other than the super shotgun as it’s the only weapon that is remotely useful. Weapon pickup is not available, they dematerialize with the enemies.

The new DOOM SnapMap is a powerful, but easy-to-use game and level editor. It allows for limitless gameplay experiences on every platform. Without any previous experience or special expertise, any player can quickly and easily snap together and visually customize maps. Its easy to add pre-defined or completely custom gameplay, and even edit game logic to create new modes. Instantly play your creation, share it with a friend, or make it available to players around the world – all in-game with the push of a button.
