DOOM Eternal releases first 10 mins of a very metal and exhilarating gameplay

When DOOM was first announced, I was a bit sceptical. I believed that it would be a mediocre reboot of a very important but a forgotten franchise. But I was wrong. It was a game that would bring FPS shoot-em-ups back to the mainstream. It was a great success, both critical and commercial. So it is no surprise that its sequel, DOOM Eternal is much awaited. 

A couple of weeks ago, Bethesda invited journalists from prominent Video Gaming websites to play the first 4 hours of DOOM Eternal. The consensus seemed unanimous as in that they were all blow away by the game and a lot of new implementations. The game was even touted to be one of the finest shooters ever by some of them. We did get to see a bit of gameplay, but they were only allowed to post bits and pieces of it. We now finally have 10 minutes of unobstructed and uncut gameplay for DOOM Eternal. 

DOOM Eternal does not waste any of your time. The game starts with a prologue and shows the hub area called the Fortress of DOOM (kind of like the Fortress of Solitude for the DOOM Slayer). When the theme song of the franchise, “At the Gates of Doom” starts playing, we know what’s coming: death, destruction and gore. Within the first 5 or so minutes, the game acquaints you with the basics by pop up dialogue. The best part about this is that it is kept short and simple and does not obstruct your gameplay. All the while the DOOM Slayer is in the midst of it, dismembering and blasting demons back to hell. With the 10 minute glimpse, I feel like DOOM Eternal is going to be more metal and more hardcore than the prequel.  

DOOM Eternal releases on March 20, 2020.
