OOOooooooo, it sort of brings back some nostalgia with todays technology, I wonder how it will be playing it though.

I can see some arcade online maybe, which may be fun for a change from the current crop of crap.

The Necromonger in side of me sez "I hope they have improved the multiplayer side of things after the alpha..there were some 'concerning gameplay decisions' that really should be addressed"
However the Furion inside of me sez "To hell with multiplayer, single player is where I'll be!" (hoping it's not broken too!)

I hope you don't mind me asking but what was wrong with the multiplayer? Can you answer that without violating some NDA?

Looking pretty good. More hyped than i was from the previous trailer. Brought back some good memories seeing some of those enemies in higher detail haha

I hope they can come close to recapturing the original dooms feeling. That evil, satanic, sci-fi, space sorta thing.

i still replay the original dooms here n there with the doomsday mods. Along the psx version of the music, so good lol

Unfortunately I can't talk about things directly. All I can say is the new Unreal Tournament 'alpha' is already superior in every department...even at its alpha stage. The concerns I have were expressed by quite a number of other closed beta participants, via the top secret forums, so hopefully the devs have listened and made changes to improve the gameplay.
I for one though can say that I know I won't be playing Doom for Multiplayer (well co-op maybe) so it's a non-issue for me I suppose. The issues in MP shouldn't be an issue for the single player campaign, even if played in co-op.

Whilst 'not talking' about upcomming games currently under NDA... :shh:
Epics new Fortnite game is hell of a lotta fun! One of the most 'fun' games I've played in a number of years. I've stopped playing everything else atm because of it. :mrgreen:

A fair enough. Admittedly I'm not interested in the multiplayer either, I'm a single player fan. Oh and I'm going to play with Snap Map. Hopefully a lot.

Not last time I heard, although maybe it changed...

Oops, my mistake.
I haven't read too much about what's in the game...and just assumed they'd have some form of co-op in the campaign...not really too sure why they haven't got it in. Two player co-op would be pretty awesome if you ask me!

Too right. I think coop is possibly the best kind of multiplayer. Not having it in the campaign is a huge omission. Oh well hopefully we'll see a bunch of fan efforts to produce coop content for the game, not the same but as close as we'll get I guess.

Lets all pray to the gods for doom coop. Nothing to lose putting it in there, i doubt this will recapture what the originals offered since you usually had the big open spaces and plenty of enemies to shoot together :p Still, i'd like to play through the new doom with a friend :)

Are they releasing mod tools for the new Doom? Hopefully the fans can do it if not in it at launch...

From what I recall all we're getting is SnapMap, no full modding tools. It's another thing I'm kind of hoping they change their mind on...

I heard from people who poked around the alpha's files that there might be some kind of SDK support. Not sure if it's just an internal tool or not at this stage, but we can dream. They just need some Q3 movement plus a rebalance and this might be a half decent online game ;D

Yeah would be a shame if there aren't proper mod tools released. Id software were always pretty cool with mod support, be sad if thats changed.

The map editor is cool, should help keep the MP side of things alive. if its the MP is good, hopefully it plays well. Be good having a run and gun shooter like doom for some PVP :D

I can see this game letting me down on a lot of these features i want haha
