“Doom’s” new multiplayer mode, Battlemode, is being developed in-house by id Software following the lukewarm reception for “Doom” 2016’s arena PvP.
“Developed by id Software, ‘Doom Eternal’ is the direct sequel to ‘Doom,’ winner of The Game Awards’ Best Action Game of 2016. Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power as you rip-and-tear your way across dimensions with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat,” Bethesda writes in a new blog post. “Powered by idTech 7 and set to an all-new pulse-pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, ‘Doom Eternal’ puts you in control of the unstoppable Doom Slayer as you blow apart new and classic demons with powerful weapons in unbelievable and never-before-seen worlds.”
