A Look Inside Doom Eternal
The game has the ultimate combination of speed and power. It’s a first-person shooter video game, developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks, and released on March 20, 2020.
The story remains the same as the Doom Slayer. Players battle the demonic forces of Hell. It’s like you are one-man fighting against Hell. Slaughtering demons with arsenal or bare fists. In the game, you’ve to send the Hell’s forces back to where it came from. Heaven needs Argent energy for its existence and Hell’s energy is created when souls burn in Hell. Thus, Hell invades Earth in order to gain the maximum number of souls so that Heaven can continue to exist. The storyline is simple but very expanded and detail-oriented. Therefore, get ready for a faster, intense, and more madness.
The Equipment and Doomguy
Know your weapons before starting the game. Doom Eternal offers the same weapons with few new additions. The super shotgun now comes with a meat hook at the front which makes it more useful now. The regular shotgun which was of no use in the first game now is used for shooting grenades and in a few more stunts. Every weapon has secondary firing modes but all these costs extra ammo. The equipment has been replaced as well. Like the Gauss Cannon, replaced by Ballista but there is not much of a change in the function. The addition is now it shoots explosive bolts and destroyer blades.
Doomguy is the Hell Walker, the champion of the Doom franchise and killer of the hordes of Hell. Doomguy is your avatar in Doom Eternal. Your avatar can jump onto walls, swing from various poles, etc. but, make sure your avatar keeps moving. You’ll kill lots of demons but demons are not just enemies. Furthermore, they give resources like health, ammunition, and armor and all these depend on how you kill them. Players can take charge of how they want to act in the game. If you’d like to be always on a movement you’ll love it. However, players who want to go all slow can set up the game as per their preferences.
