DOOM Eternal is more of a sequel to the events of DOOM 2. Taking on the stage at QuakeCon 2019, Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin had provided a sneak peek into the under-construction game.

Feature Advancements in DOOM Eternal

The DOOM character is now better in several ways as he features an advanced armor and the ability to quickly dash around.

The guy has now been equipped with an extending blade mounted into the wrist following which there will be new finishing move animations. The developers have also mounted a multi-tool in the shoulder but they haven’t yet revealed how the thing works. From the footage at QuakeCon, it’s clear that this new mounting in the shoulder can throw flame jet.

Keeping the suit improvements aside, the character is now more moveable. You can now climb onto walls, grab ledges and swing from pole to pole.

Meat Hook Powered Shotgun

Sitting at the end of the shotgun’s barrel, the meat hook can be used for getting closer to enemies and performing executions. Nevertheless, the momentum provided by grappling can be used for shooting at the enemy’s back by moving behind him quickly. You could also latch on to the clefts and ridges in the environment and navigate around quickly using this hook.

DOOM Souls

Similar to Dark Souls, players can now invade other’s game but this is currently an optional feature. There hasn’t been any solid information regarding how this feature works. However, competing with real players in the battle arena of DOOM sounds fun.

DOOM Eternal was originally scheduled for a November 2019 release. Unfortunately, the developers came with a piece of sad news for the fans pushing the release date to March 20, 2020. The delay announcement was made just a month prior to the original release date.
