With the laser sword to the shootout – new trailer

If you were now afraid of filigree duels with the blade: Don't worry, Doom Eternal has the finest grenades, even if the new trailer starts surprisingly quietly.

If a series of games stands for "Brain out and shoot", then it is Doom. Doom Eternal is no exception and the new trailer is shot with a variety of shooting irons. The trailer shows in the first half of the story, starts so unusually calm and takes on the comparatively atmospheric traits of a Doom 3.

In the second half, someone finally turns all the knobs on the amplifier to the right and hits the sides. In contrast to the predecessor, it is now also on the earth destroyed by the demon invasion. Because one thing is certain: only you and your pump gun can still save humanity.

In addition, a "heavenly" alien race intervenes, which sees the invasion as a test for humans. But even they did not have the Doom Slayer and its rich arsenal of melee and ranged weapons on their screens. It also shows how the environment can be used to kill the enemy, for example by triggering a trap.

Which brings us to the topic: In the trailer, some weapons have new functions, so the Gatling Gun can have a shield and the rocket launcher can have a mode that charges and fires several rockets at once. The crucible sword should not be missing and will be presented again in full use at the end of the trailer.
