The upcoming 2016 release of Doom will be able to go “toe-to-toe” with the biggest fps genre games on the market says Bethesda marketing exec Pete Hines. I believe it! The original 1993 release of Doom was a three-stage (each comprising of nine levels) fps horror game that arguably created the popularity that we see today for first-person-shooters. With its terrific sci-fi creepiness and its ability to keep you on your toes at all times, the revived Doom could be a huge breakthrough in the fps gaming genre that we’ve all been waiting for.
“The multiplayer is not your traditional first-person shooter multiplayer. It is not one shot and the other guy is dead, it is not about who has the fastest trigger finger or reactions… All of those things together creates something you’re not going to get from many other first-person shooters…It can go toe-to-toe with those really big shooters.” said Hines in an interview with MCV.
Watch the full rundown of what you’ll be able to expect from the Doom 2016 release here:
“Your average first-person shooter gamer does not list Doom amongst his or her favorite or most beloved first-person shooters, because there hasn’t been one for a decade.” said Hines. Although I tend to disagree since I’ve loved Doom ever since I was able to play a standard fps game on the PC, that doesn’t mean that other people won’t be aware of the greatness that the new Doom will have to offer. Marketing execs for id software and Bethesda plan on rolling out multiple events that will expose players to features that will be available in the game, which will ultimately open up a new pool of players as well as revitalize the gamers who originally played on those boxy, old desktops.
Doom will be released in the Spring of 2016 for PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4. I for one can’t wait to get my hands on this game, because I need that visceral craving for thrill that Doom always seems to satisfy no matter how many times I’ve played it. So go ahead, Bethesda. Release this monstrosity unto your people and let it devour them whole. Good luck, gamers. You’re going to need it.
