The iconic DOOM series has been stuck in development hell for what seems like forever… We haven’t heard much about the game and haven’t seen anything since work on the fourth title began back in 2008. With a full 10 years passing since Doom 3 was released, various tech issues with id Software’s latest game RAGE, and John Carmack leaving id Software recently to become the CTO at Oculus VR, it seemed like DOOM might be stuck in hell for even longer. But at this year’s E3, Bethesda released a brand-new short CGI trailer under the radar that teased the game’s big reveal next month at the developer’s own convention, Quakecon 2014.
In the trailer, id showcases a new look for the fan-favorite Cyberdemon enemy. As the massive demon monster is being constructed, the trailer’s narrator explains its origins from the UAC’s (Union Aerospace Corporation) space exploration and biological experiments that resulted in the unholy merging of flesh and metal.
With nothing being shown off even behind closed doors at Bethesda’s E3 booth, details are very slim on Doom 4, but with only a month until Quakecon, you can sure as hell expect a BFG-sized amount of new information when the game is finally revealed.
