Whether you are a fan of Doom 2016 or not, the sequel to the now three-year-old game will be landing sometime this year or next year across PC via Steam and home consoles. Ahead of the gory FPS game’s release date comes an announcement from id Software about how the team is “remixing” some things about Doom and its universe. Their new design approach to the long-running FPS seires will be detailed at E3 2019.
Within the next week (and a couple of days) is one of the biggest games event known as E3 2019, which in this case id Software and Bethesda are gearing up for by plastering a triple-set of murals on a building to promote Doom Eternal.

Accompanying the Twitter post comes the listing on the Coliseum page that reveals id Software will change up Doom’s “power fantasy” in an attempt to challenge players “in new ways.” At the event, the team will also expand on its ambitions to create a “Doom universe”:
DOOM Eternal: Carving a New Path Through Hell
Hear from id Software about how the team are remixing the DOOM power fantasy to challenge players in new ways, and their ambitions to create a DOOM universe.
Personally, I’m not sure what changing Doom’s “power fantasy” means and what id Software will do to challenge players, but we’ll find out soon on June 11th, 2019, at 4:00 P.M.
In other Doom Eternal news, QuakeCon 2019 (or the Year of Doom) will have a heavy focus on the upcoming shooter where the event will kick-off on July 25th and end on July 28th at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Dallas, Texas. You can learn more about this event and Doom Eternal by heading on over to QuakeCon.org.
Lastly, folks can also look forward to Doom Eternal on other platforms such as PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia. The FPS sequel to the 2016 entry has no release date yet, but I’m sure E3 2019 or Quakecon 2019 will fix that soon.
