The critically acclaimed 2016 reboot to the iconic shooter Doom will get a sequel.
Announced with a teaser trailer as part of Bethesda Softworks presentation Sunday at E3, Doom Eternal will re-team original Doom developer id Software with publisher Bethesda for a follow-up to the popular reboot.
While the first look trailer doesn't offer a look at any gameplay from the upcoming sequel, it shows the Doom Slayer back in action, prepared to take on the forces of Hell once again after demons have overrun the Earth. The trailer promises a first look at gameplay via a livestream at QuakeCon on Aug. 10.
In the meantime, Bethesda teases that Doom Eternal will feature a mix of classic and new enemies and weapons, while granting the Doom Slayer more powers and abilities than ever before. Mick Gordon, who composed the award-winning soundtrack for the 2016 game, will return to compose the soundtrack to Eternal.
Originally in development as a sequel to 2004's Doom 3, plans for a fourth Doom game were changed to rebooting the franchise after original developer id Software was acquired by Bethesda in 2009. With a clear, back-to-the-basics approach, the game was a commercial and critical success upon its release in 2016. The reboot went on to sell millions of copies worldwide and earn an 85 percent score on review aggregate site Metacritic.
