Doom Gameplay Reveal Planned for Bethesda's E3 Showcase

Runtime: 0:11    Author: BethesdaSoftworksUK    Category: Trailers

Since Bethesda announced their E3 Showcase earlier this year, there's been a lot of speculation about what might be shown. One thing, at least, is now confirmed: a worldwide gameplay reveal for the upcoming Doom reboot.

Bethesda shared a teaser video today that shows a few seconds of Doom footage, before announcing the gameplay reveal starting at 7pm on June 14 PDT (2pm on June 15, NZST).

Doom is being developed by id Software, the same studio that created the first three Doom games. It was announced in 2008 as Doom 4, but development was restarted entirely in 2011 when Bethesda came on board as publisher.

Since releasing a teaser trailer at E3 last year, Bethesda and id Software have had almost nothing to say about Doom. They did, however, share exclusive gameplay footage with QuakeCon attendees last July. According to those in attendance, the new game will have melee attacks, finishing moves, and new movement options like double jumps and manteling, but will also bring back some features of earlier games, like being able to carry numerous weapons and not needing to reload.

Bethesda's E3 Showcase is the first of eight planned press conferences taking place around E3 this year. Microsoft, Sony, Ubisoft, EA, and Nintendo all return, while Square Enix is, like Bethesda, holding their first one. There will also be a PC Gaming Showcase on the evening of the first day of E3.

Lol wrong thread....like you said though a lot of memories...mine for Doom and it's numerous incarnations. I've always loved these games so starting E3 with Doom is a good start for the event imo.
