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...
Bethesda and id Software are in the process rebooting the Doom franchise and it seems like it’s been in development for ages. When we last visited the upcoming Doom remake, Bethesda had posted a giblet-filled trailer which showed some pretty impressive gameplay visuals, kickass hand-to-hand combat and plenty of head stomping. Today, Bethesda's release clued us in on something that Doom fans have been anticipating for years: an actual release date. Mark your calendars for May 13th, because that’s when Doom will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and of course, the PC platform. Gamers will... Read more...
Doom’s official launch isn’t until the Spring of 2016, but you’re going to have a couple chances to scratch that itch while you wait. For one thing, QuakeCon 2015 is underway this weekend and Bethesda is expected to give some attendees a crack at a pre-Alpha version of Doom multiplayer. For another, the company is gearing up for the Doom Multiplayer Alpha, which is going to open on multiple platforms in the near future. Bethesda said this week that it plans open the Doom 4 multiplayer Alpha to PC players and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players alike. Getting signed up for the Alpha isn’t free, but... Read more...
It’s been too long since we stalked the halls of the hapless Martian military base in Doom 3, blowing monsters to bits and cursing at the gameplay mechanic that dropped bad guys directly behind us. Now, with rumors of a Doom 4 having been proven true, we’re dying to get back in there and settle the score. By the looks of the Doom trailer that Bethesda put on YouTube just yesterday, things are going to get even gorier. Doom 3 was intensely bloody, but the new game really puts the id Tech 6 graphics engine to use, creating ‘realistic’ explosions of zombie limbs and flesh. As in games past, you’ll... Read more...
Pac-Man has officially been recognized as one of the most important video games of all time. Such is the insinuation from being one of only half a dozen titles inducted into The Strong's inaugural World Video Game Hall of Fame, which includes a collection of titles that span multiple decades, countries of origin, and gaming platforms.What they all have in common is that they each "significantly affected the video game industry, popular culture, and society in general." Based on those merits, it's hard to argue against the inclusion of Pac-Man, a game that debuted 35 years ago and is one of the... Read more...
There are teaser trailers, and then there are teaser trailers. The newest installment in the Doom franchise is currently under the development, and id Software (along with publisher Bethesda) are trying to build hype for the game with a fresh pre-E3 2015 trailer. However, you had better not blink because the incredibly short, 12-second trailer only has roughly three seconds of actual game footage. What a tease! Thankfully, the footage that we do see looks awesome and gives us a clear look at the Revenant demon that gamers were first introduced to over twenty years ago with Doom 2. Another 1994-era...

“Doom” is one of those titles that is both legendary and also has been a frustrating tease. Back in 2012 “Doom 3” was remastered (we guess) for the Xbox and PS3, and earlier this year you could get access to a new Doom beta if you preordered “Wolfenstein” (what?). But now, in conjunction with QuakeCon 2014, it seems that an actual Doom game is coming. Or at least, there’s a trailer, so that’s something. Unfortunately, the trailer shows us next to nothing about the actual gameplay, but you can see a very dark, very frightening emergence of a beast--”an... Read more...
