First announced at E3 2016, Doom’s Unto the Evil DLC is now available for download on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. The download, which is actually the first DLC for Doom, brings with its three new multiplayer maps (Offering, Cataclysm and Ritual) to keep you busy. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a new playable demon (Harvester) and a new weapon (UAC EMG Pistol) to wreak havoc with. The PartyPlay system also allows anyone to join in on Unto the Evil fragging action as long as one of your participating “party” friends has purchased the DLC. There are also new taunts, armor sets and hack... Read more...
It’s been over two months since DOOM was released to much fanfare. Since that time, much digital blood has been spilled at the hands of gamers all over the globe, and thanks to a new update, some gamers can expect to see even greater performance in DOOM. id Software announced today that Vulkan API support is now live on the PC version of DOOM. In case you haven’t been keeping abreast of Vulkan, it is a graphics API that was developed by the Khronos Group. Thanks to low-level access to graphics hardware, much of the driver overhead is erased, leading to higher performance. In addition to lower overhead,... Read more...
The recent Doom reboot published by Bethesda and developed by id Software has been getting rave reviews from fans of the franchise, both old and new, and it's about to get even better.

The update will introduce... Read more...
Time and again we've talked about there not being any mulligans on the Internet—once you put something on social media, it's there to stay even if you delete your post. An AMD executive is finding this out after a deleted Twitter posted continues to make the rounds. More specifically, it's the picture he posted of an unannounced Radeon RX 480 running Doom at 1440p that's gaining traction.The post is no longer on Twitter, but the accompanying picture lives on. It was taken at a "Polaris Tech Day" event in Macau in which select members of the press got a sneak peek at Polaris, AMD's next generation... Read more...
Late last week, we provided you with some awesome footage of Doom running on an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 using the Vulkan API. Granted, we were filming this footage using our own camera, so it’s not exactly clean, crisp and impeccably detailed. Well, the folks at NVIDIA and id Software want to make sure that eager-beaver gamers are seeing Doom in the absolute best possible light, so NVIDIA today posted a 6-minute direct feed to the footage to YouTube. In case you were wondering, the direct feed is 2.1GB uncompressed and is running 1920x1080 at 60 FPS. Unfortunately, this replay of the game footage... Read more...
Doom Powered By NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 And Vulkan API At a private briefing with NVIDIA, representatives from id software came out on stage to show off the upcoming game Doom running on the just-announced GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card using the Vulkan API. It was the first public demonstration of the game using both NVIDIA’s new flagship and the next-gen API, which is a low-overhead, cross-platform graphics and compute API akin to DirectX 12 and AMD’s Mantle. We’ve got some live-action from the demo available for your viewing pleasure here... Doom Running On The GTX 1080 Using Vulkan In the initial... Read more...
We’re getting incredibly close to the May 13th launch of the latest addition to the Doom franchise, and we’re getting excited about the prospects of deftly separating demon heads from their possessed bodies. In an effort to pump up gamers even more ahead of the official launch next week, Bethesda has released a launch trailer for Doom in which they urge you to “Fight like hell.” Message received. Bethesda saved the best for last, as this is easily the best Doom trailer released yet and gives us a great look at the single-player campaign (although there doesn’t appear to be any footage of the multiplayer...

If you’re a fan of the Doom franchise and have fostered an itchy trigger finger at the prospect of blasting opponents into giblet with your shotgun, your time has finally come. The Doom multiplayer open beta is now live on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and via Steam. Now granted, this multiplayer beta is only open through the weekend, and there will only be two maps to choose from during its brief period of availability. Likewise, you’ll have to contend with just two game modes, one playable demon and just seven weapons. Sure, it’s limited, but we’ll take what we can get at this point. After being teased...

There's still roughly a month and a half to go before Bethesda releases its Doom reboot to Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but in the meantime, there's a new live-action trailer with a gnarly soundtrack to get you pumped about pummeling "terrifying demons" using an assortment of "bad ass guns." Those are two of the three pillars of Doom's game play that the trailer tries to evoke, the other being "relentless combat." Blood and gore would have combined to make a nifty fourth pillar, but they're absent from the live-action trailer's description and, oddly enough, from the 1-minute trailer... Read more...
Just like other hardcore gamers out there, we’re eagerly awaiting id Software's next DOOM release, which is still quite a ways off from its May 13th launch. There’s plenty for everyone including a single player campaign, which is expected to last about 13 hours, or for those who want to tear it up (literally) online through the game's huge multiplayer mode. When details were released about the multiplayer component earlier this month, we found out that we could do something unexpected: we can become the demon. This marks the first time since the DOOM series... Read more...
Craving some blood and guts in fun and entertaining ways that only Doom can deliver? Don't worry, Bethesda has your back. The game publisher revealed a variety of multiplayer game modes that will be available at launch—half a dozen in all—which mix fast-paced action with competitive combat in various arenas. Gamers looking for a traditional multiplayer experience will find their fix in Team Deathmatch. There's nothing complicated about this one—Deathmatch pits two teams against each other with the simple task of decimating the opponent. Players can choose their loadouts, customize their marine,...

Bethesda's readying the release of the much anticipated Doom reboot due out in a couple of months. In the meantime, eager gamers will have a chance to dole out hellish punishment to real-life opponents in the forthcoming closed beta. That is, if your PC has the requisite muscle (Hint: it probably does). The newly revealed minimum and recommended system requirements aren't all that steep, provided you're rocking something a little more modern than that AMD Barton setup from yesteryear. According to Bethesda, to play the multiplayer portion of Doom at 720p, you'll need at least an Intel Core i5-2400... Read more...
In case you couldn’t already tell, the members of the HotHardware crew are pretty big fans of the Doom series. And wouldn’t you know it, the latest installment in the Doom franchise is heading our way May 13th. While we all await the closed multiplayer round, which will run from March 31st through April 3rd, Bethesda has given us just a little taste of what to expect with a new trailer. The multiplayer beta is a rush to the senses and brings chills of brutal gaming sessions reminiscent of previous Doom titles but with a huge boost in graphics fidelity and special effects. However, the somewhat... Read more...
Conan O'Brien is the type of comedian that people tend to either really like or loathe. As for me, I'm a fan of his infectious personality and find him hilarious, especially when he sits down to play and review video games—or in this case, just get riled up playing Doom with a couple of NFL players headed to the Super Bowl. Playing the recurring role of Clueless Gamer, Conan sits in a "cheap Marriott conference room" flanked by Josh Norman, a cornerback for the Carolina Panthers, and Von Miller, a linebacker for the Denver Broncos. Before they even get to any gameplay, Conan brings up the fact... Read more...
