Developed by id Software on the latest idTech engine, DOOM: The Dark Ages is a single-player action FPS that tells the epic cinematic origin story of the DOOM Slayer's rage. You are the DOOM Slayer, the legendary demon-killing warrior and the super weapon in this never-before-seen dark and sinister medieval war against Hell.

That looks awesome! And... It reminds me that I've not played Doom (2016) or Doom Eternal.

Damn! Definitely in for this. I just hope they stay away from the platforming stuff that they had in Doom Eternal.

Doom (2016) was just about perfect.

You get used to the platforming aspect in Eternal. At least, I did, but the 2016 will always be one of my all-time favorites.

Yes, I did get used to it. I just didn't enjoy it, and it seemed an odd thing to incorporate.

Well, it had to do something a little different, but I get what ur saying. I thought it was an abomination at first too.

And, I like the idea more of a chainsaw shield, rather than just a chainsaw.

Trailer isn't doing much for me but I loved Doom and Doom Eternal so I imagine I'll enjoy this.

This looks great and much more open than Eternal and 2016. Eternal was very frustrating to play but damn it looked great, still probably one of the best-looking games.

I'm still not fully onboard with this franchise but I love the attitude and brutality of it all. I'm still waiting for a Doom game I fully love.

Also, the weapons look so damn good, looks like they overhauled everything.

A great use of Game Pass! Can't wait to play it Day 1.
Wish I could play it on a Dual Sense Controller for the haptic feedback which I'm sure would be amazing, but not gonna buy a game (at full price) that I can play for free.

I played and finished the 2016 twice. Probably going to fire Eternal back up tomorrow.
