At the QuakeCon, 2016’s Doom’s sequel, Doom Eternal and Doom Slayer was also discussed.
When Hugo Martin, the game’s creative director, got a question about how the Doom Slayer is so powerful, he answered with the following: „He’s ripping and tearing demons apart all the time, so… It’s funny, we discussed that. Does he lift? I’m like, I don’t… he’s not, like, a bro. Do you know? I don’t think he drinks protein.” After this subject, the protagonist’s free time when not slaying demons was also brought up: „Should we talk about the hub? Maybe?”, Marty Stratton, the executive producer asked Martin, and his answer was: „You’ll see kind of, like, where he hangs out, again, if you care. You’ll see how he spends his free time, and you’ll learn a lot about him through the game if you look for it and pay attention.”
In Doom Eternal, there will be a new demon, who got a creative (not) name called Doom Hunter, who – nomen est omen – will try to take our protagonist down. This big, horned, rocket launcher-wielding enemy will not by an easy one when we run into it in the game that will launch on November 22 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
„Update on our new classic DOOM releases: The BethesdaNet login requirement was included for the Slayers Club, to reward members for playing the classic DOOM games. The login should be optional, and we are working on changing the requirement to optional now,” Bethesda wrote on Twitter regarding the surprise releases of the games on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It’s not a good idea to put DRM into a 26-year-old game, and thus, a patch is in the works to avoid asking for a Bethesda.net account.
Bethesda also told IGN something different about the Xbox 360 versions of Doom and Doom II: „Players who own and previously installed the Xbox 360 Xbox Live Arcade backwards-compatible version of the games on Xbox One will still find those games in their Game Library and will be able to reinstall that version of the game. There was an error with this functionality today, but we expect it to be remedied very quickly.” So there’s no need to do some tricks – you can still easily plonk in the disc of Doom 3 BFG Edition to have access to them.
